He was never the best, but he was entertaining – at the weigh-ins for his last fight, he dressed up as Conor McGregor (complete with chest tattoo). And now Tom Lawlor is suspended two years for a USADA violation.
Here’s MMAFighting with the details:
Tom Lawlor is the latest UFC name to be sanctioned by USADA.
The popular UFC light heavyweight was suspended two years by the UFC’s anti-doping partner after a positive test for the banned substance ostarine, USADA announced Friday.
Lawlor was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation in November following the failed drug test from an Oct. 10 sample. His suspension is retroactive to that date, so he will be able to return in October 2018.
Ostarine is a selective androgen receptor module (SARM) with benefits similar to anabolic steroids, retaining and, at times, producing lean muscle. It’s in the Anabolic Agents portion of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code.
