It’s official. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran and ultra-popular fan favorite Tom Lawlor has been suspended for two years by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after getting popped for a potential violation back on Oct. 10. USADA made the announcement earlier today (Fri., Feb. 24, 2017), naming ostarine as the banned substance “Filthy” tested positive for.
According to MMA Fighting, ostarine is a “selective androgen receptor module (SARM) with benefits similar to anabolic steroids, retaining and, at times, producing lean muscle.” USADA officials also stated that the banned substance is “not currently available as a prescription medication in any country, and its unauthorized use may carry serious side effects.”
Lawlor, 33, has produced a UFC record of 6-5 since joining the promotion back in 2008. He has gone 1-1 since moving up to light heavyweight, suffering a recent decision loss to Corey Anderson back at UFC 196. Lawlor’s two-year suspension is retroactive, so he’ll be eligible to return in October 2018.
