Twenty-six is the number of times Gleison Tibau has fought in the Octagon. And now once is the number of times he’s been busted for PEDs.
Today the UFC announced that the Brazilian has failed a USADA out-of-competition test. As per their site:
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has notified both Gleison Tibau and UFC that he has been provisionally suspended due to a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition test.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Gleison Tibau. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time in the process.
Well color me shocked. Given his mileage and appearance, there’s no way I’d have ever thought Tibau was on the sauce.
