Heavyweight Justin Ledet became the second UFC fighter on Wednesday flagged for a potential anti-doping violation.
Shortly after Ricardo Abreu was flagged for his second potential anti-doping violation, while still under suspension for his first violation, UFC officials issued a statement announcing Ledet’s potential violation.
“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,” read the UFC statement.
“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 (8-0, 1NC) hasn’t fought since submitting Mark Godbeer in November of 2016.
