Ben Rothwell Busted by USADA For Failed Drug Test

Ben Rothwell Busted by USADA For Failed Drug Test

The UFC’s heavyweight division suffered yet another blow, with Ben Rothwell failing an out-of-competition drug test and the UFC screwed when it comes to having someone worthwhile to face Fabricio Werdum at UFC 211.

Here’s the official statement:

The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Ben Rothwell of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on February 6, 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.
