Roehrick Fails USADA Test
UFC light heavyweight Nick Roehrick may be facing a suspension after the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) notified the once-beaten Floridian and the UFC of a potential anti-doping violation.
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Roehrick of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on August 8, 2017.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Roehnick. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
USADA did not release which substance triggered his positive test.
Roehrick was a last minute replacement to battle Jarod Cannonier at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 25 Finale in July. His loss via knockout ended his seven-fight win streak and if this sample yields a suspension, Roehrick may not get a second chance at his first UFC win for quite sometime.
