USADA Violation: Heavyweight Justin Ledet Flagged For Doping
You’re outta there… The up-and-coming Heavyweight contender Justin Ledet has gotten the red flag for a possible United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) violation which has come straight out of an out-of-competition sample that was given on Jan 12, 2017. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) released a statement about the whole deal:

The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Justin Ledet of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on January 12, 2017. USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

Ledet the 28-year-old, was and still is undefeated… With a record of 8-0, including winning his first two fights inside the Octagon, taking out Chase Sherman and most recently submitting Mark Godbeer via rear-naked choke at UFC Fight Night 99: “Mousasi vs. Hall 2” in Nov. 2016. “El Blanco” was set to take on Dmitriy Sosnovskiy this past weekend (Sat., Feb. 4, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 104 event in Houston, Texas, before he was forced out with an untimely injury.
