Another one bites the dust? Up-and-coming Heavyweight contender Justin Ledet has been notified of a potential United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample taken on Jan 12, 2017. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) released a statement regarding the transgression:
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. 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, 28, is currently undefeated (8-0), including winning his first two fights inside the Octagon, taking out Chase Sherman and most recently submitting Mark Godbeer via rear-naked choke at UFC Fight Night 99: “Mousasi vs. Hall 2” in Nov. 2016. “El Blanco” was set to take on Dmitriy Sosnovskiy this past weekend (Sat., Feb. 4, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 104 event in Houston, Texas, before he was forced out with an untimely injury.
