Brazilian Fails Drug Test

Brazilian Fails Drug Test

TUF Brasil washout Marcos Rogerio de Lima has amassed a mottled record since graduating from the reality show to the Octagon proper, and his last fight saw him fall to Ovince St. Preux via Von Flue Choke, because apparently not all Brazilians know basic jiu-jitsu.

And now he’s flagged for a shady drug test, so don’t expect to see him around for a while.

As per the UFC:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Marcos Rogerio de Lima of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on August 1, 2017. Marcos was scheduled to compete at UFC Fight Night: Struve vs. Volkov in Rotterdam, Netherlands on September 2, 2017. USADA has provisionally suspended Rogerio de Lima based on the potential anti-doping violation. Given the provisional suspension and the proximity of the Rotterdam event, Rogerio de Lima has been removed from the card and UFC is currently seeking a replacement.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Rogerio de Lima. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
