Three UFC fighters disqualified for doping

Three fighters of the world’s strongest league of the world received various terms of disqualification as a result of consideration of their cases by the disciplinary committee of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The longest suspension of 12 months will be served by UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, whose out-of-competition doping sample from June of this year was found to contain the metabolic steroid drostanolone.

A six-month suspension awaits welterweight Daniel Rodriguez, who was found to have ostarine and ligandrol in his system. The fighter will be able to return to the octagon next January.

A four-and-a-half month suspension will be served on Mayra Bueno Silva, who finished Holly Holm with a second-round choke finish this July and then failed a banned substance test.

The minimal suspension is due to the fact that the Brazilian was able to prove that the banned ritalinic acid entered her system along with the ADHD medication she takes. Nevertheless, Bueno Silva forfeited her victory over the American, whose bout was ruled a forfeit, and will also pay a fine of $11,000.
