USADA compliance issue shakes up UFC on FOX 20 fight card

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is making some last-minute changes to its UFC on FOX 20 fight card, scheduled for this Saturday night (July 23, 2016) inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

That’s because of a United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) “compliance issue” with “Prelims” fighter George Sullivan, who will no longer be fighting Hector Urbina on the UFC Fight Pass digital network.

The promotion’s official statement:

UFC competitor George Sullivan voluntarily disclosed information to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) that could pose a potential compliance issue with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy. Out of an abundance of caution, Sullivan has been removed from his scheduled bout on Saturday night against Hector Urbina while USADA conducts an investigation into the matter. Urbina will still weigh in as a potential backup opponent should there be a need for him to compete in another bout on Saturday. Otherwise, he will be re-booked for another card in the near future.

Abundance of caution?
