The real question.....
Would we have ever know he failed a USADA test if NYSAC hadn’t also caught him?
Because isn’t USADA supposed to be doing fandoms and more in-depth testing.

We still don't know what the drug was. If it was a diuretic, that might be why.

UFC heavyweight Ruslan Magomedov receives lifetime ban from USADA

Ruslan Magomedov is the first UFC fighter to receive a lifetime ban from USADA.

The heavyweight veteran was handed down a lifetime sanction on Monday after sustaining his second and third violations of the UFC anti-doping policy, USADA announced.

Magomedov’s second violation was the result of an Oct. 10, 2018 out-of-competition urine sample he provided which tested positive for the banned substances Methyltestosterone metabolite 17α-methyl-5β-androstan-3α, 17β-diol, stanozolol metabolites 3’-hydroxystanozolol-O-glucuronide, 16β-hydroxystanozolol-O-glucuronide, and stanozolol-N-glucuronide, all of which are classified as anabolic agents.

Magomedov’s third violation came on Feb. 5, 2019 as the result of “his refusal to complete the sample collection process as requested by a doping control officer during an out-of-competition test,” per USADA.

“Refusing or failing to submit to sample collection, without compelling justification, is a doping violation under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy,” USADA wrote in a statement.

Magomedov, 32, last fought in the UFC in 2015, picking up a decision win over Shawn Jordan. He racked up 3-0 record in the promotion, also notching decision victories over Viktor Pesta and Josh Copeland.

The Russian heavyweight previously accepted a two-year suspension for his first USADA violation as the result of an out-of-competition drug sample collected on Sept. 7, 2016, which tested positive for ostarine.

Magomedov holds a 14-1 professional MMA record. Prior to his time in the UFC, he competed extensively on the Russian regional scene, picking up wins over former UFC heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia and Ricco Rodriguez.

Mairbek Taisumov accepts six-month USADA suspension

Mairbek Taisumov has accepted a six-month suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency, the organization announced Thursday.

Per a release, Taisumov tested positive for a pair of stanozolol metabolites, 3′-hydroxystanozolol-O-glucuronide and 16β-hydroxystanozolol-O-glucuronide. The metabolites were discovered in an in-competition sample collected on Sept. 15, 2018 at UFC Moscow, where Taisumov defeatedDesmond Green by unanimous decision. There is no mention of whether the result of that bout will be overturned as that ruling will be determined by the UFC.

Stanozolol is prohibited year-round under USADA policy. Taisumov’s suspension is retroactive to Oct. 8, 2018, the date that his provisional suspension began, meaning that he is already eligible to compete in 2019.

According to the USADA, Taisumov, a native of the Chechen Republic of Russia, cooperated by providing information to the USADA concerning the dietary supplement products that he used during the time period related to the sample in question. The USADA collaborated with the Russian Anti-Doping Agency and a World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah, and it was determined that the dietary supplements all contained stanozolol. This was enough evidence for the USADA to rule that the products were contaminated, which is one factor that can lead to a reduced suspension.

“Here, USADA took into consideration the circumstances that resulted in Taisumov’s positive test and determined that a six-month period of ineligibility was an appropriate sanction under the rules for his violation,” the official statement reads.

Taisumov, 30, is currently on a six-fight win streak in the UFC’s lightweight division (including one catchweight bout that saw Taisumov come in heavy).

USADA gives Walt Harris four-month suspension for contaminated supplement

UFC heavyweight Walt Harris has been suspended four months by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, the agency announced Monday.

The 35-year-old Harris tested positive for the anabolic agent LGD-4033 in an in-competition urine sample collected by the California State Athletic Commission at UFC 232 at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

While Harris could have been suspended as long as two years, he cooperated with USADA “with information about a dietary supplement product he was using before and at the time of the relevant sample collection,” per USADA.

This info helped demonstrate that Harris unknowingly ingested a prohibited substance through a tainted supplement, and USADA thus reduced his penalty.

Harris’ split-decision win over Anrdei Arlovski at UFC 232 was changed to a no contest by the CSAC

The suspension is backdated to Dec. 30, the date of UFC 232, which means Harris (11-7 MMA, 4-4 UFC) will be eligible to compete again on April 30. Therefore, his scheduled bout with Sergey Spivak at UFC on ESPN+ 9 on May 4 is unaffected by the suspension.

Four UFC fighters get six-month USADA suspensions over supplements



Ostarine has again popped up as the culprit in contaminated supplement cases involving UFC fighters, with four fighters accepting six-month suspensions, per the promotion’s anti-doping administrator.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) today announced settlements after out-of-competition test failures from Augusto Mendes (March 7, 2018), Marvin Vettori (August 24, 2018), Sean O'Malley (September 5 and December 8, 2018) and inaugural flyweight champ Nicco Montano (October 25, 2018).

All but one – Montano – is eligible to compete with their six-month terms retroactive to the date of their provisional suspensions.

Both O’Malley and Vettori took to social media to share their reactions.

Ostarine is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that’s banned year round and is sold worldwide as a compound that mimics anabolic steroids. USADA has pushed legislators to outlaw supplements that contain ostarine amid several UFC positives.

Welterweight Tim Means, a longtime teammate of Montano, accepted a six-month term after linking his failed test to a commercial product. Heavyweight Josh Barnett successfully avoided a suspension when he documented his use; both are suing the supplement manufacturers.

USADA explained the delay in announcing the settlements as a consequence of the long results management process in tainted supplement cases.

It’s not the first time USADA has announced a group of settlements following the discovery of tainted supplements. One year ago, the anti-doping agency cut a deal with three Brazilian fighters after they took supplements from compounding pharmacies that allegedly sold products tainted with PEDs. Junior dos Santos was critical of the third-party firm for delaying his career.

USADA no longer announces potential anti-doping violations, instead waiting for a case – or cases – to be resolved. In Mendes’ case, news of his positive was publicly revealed because the anti-doping agency’s new policy hadn’t taken effect.

In the case of Vettori and O’Malley, both fighters announced they’d failed USADA tests and vowed to contest the results. O’Malley’s pair of test failures was treated as a single violation because the amount of ostarine in both samples was consistent with ingestion prior to his first positive.

Here is the full announcement:

USADA announced today that four athletes have accepted six-month sanctions for violating the UFC® Anti-Doping Policy after testing positive for trace amounts of ostarine consistent with supplement contamination.

Ostarine is a non-Specified Substance in the class of Anabolic Agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, which has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List. Ostarine, also known as MK-2866 and Enobosarm, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that is illegally sold worldwide as a performance-enhancing substance. Ostarine is not currently available as a prescription medication in any country, and its unauthorized use may carry serious side effects. Nonetheless, ostarine has commonly been found as a declared and undeclared ingredient in many dietary supplements. More information about the risks of ostarine can be found through a USADA athlete advisory.

USADA’s athlete advisory recognizes the demonstrated prevalence of ostarine in a wide range of supplement products used by athletes (see USADA High Risk List for more than 70 products) and that ostarine has frequently been found as a product contaminant. The trace amounts of ostarine found in each of the athlete’s samples was made possible by sensitive laboratory detection capabilities. However, as detection windows increase and the potential time between ingestion and detection lengthens, it has become more difficult for athletes to identify a contaminated product that may be the source of their positive test. As a consequence, the investigation period in ostarine cases is frequently relatively long, as has been the case in each of the cases announced today.

USADA has resolved the following cases, after conducting a thorough investigation and finding no evidence of intentional use, consistent with other supplement contamination cases:

Augusto Mendes, 36, of Glendale, Ariz., tested positive for ostarine following an out-of-competition test conducted on March 7, 2018. He accepted a six-month period of ineligibility that began on March 20, 2018, the date he was provisionally suspended from competition.
Marvin Vettori, 25, of Mezzocorona, Italy, tested positive for ostarine following an out-of-competition test conducted on August 24, 2018. He accepted a six-month period of ineligibility that began on August 24, 2018, the date he was provisionally suspended from competition.
Sean O’Malley, 24, of Phoenix, Ariz., tested positive for ostarine following out-of-competition tests conducted on September 5, 2018 and December 8, 2018. His two positives were treated as a single, first violation because the amount of ostarine in both samples is consistent with ingestion prior to September 5, 2018. He accepted a six-month period of ineligibility that began on September 19, 2018, the date he was provisionally suspended from competition.
Nicco Montano, 30, of Albuquerque, N.M., tested positive for ostarine following an out-of-competition test conducted on October 25, 2018. She accepted a six-month period of ineligibility that began on November 15, 2018, the date she was provisionally suspended from competition.
USADA conducts the year-round, independent anti-doping program for all UFC athletes. USADA is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental agency whose sole mission is to preserve the integrity of competition, inspire true sport, and protect the rights of clean athletes. In an effort to aid UFC athletes, as well as their support team members, in understanding the rules applicable to them, USADA provides comprehensive instruction on the UFC Anti-Doping Program website (https://UFC.USADA.org) regarding the testing process and prohibited substances, how to obtain permission to use a necessary medication, and the risks and dangers of taking supplements as well as performance-enhancing and recreational drugs. In addition, the agency manages a drug reference hotline, Drug Reference Online (https://UFC.GlobalDRO.com), conducts educational sessions, and proactively distributes a multitude of educational materials, such as the Prohibited List, easy-reference wallet cards, and periodic athlete alerts.

Along with education and testing, robust anti-doping programs enable investigations stemming from tips and whistleblowers. USADA makes available a number of ways to report the abuse of performance-enhancing drugs in sport in an effort to protect clean athletes and promote clean competition. Any tip can be reported using the USADA Play Clean Tip Center, by email at playclean@usada.org, by phone at 1‑877-Play Clean (1-877-752-9253), or by mail.

Eat healthy and don't take supplements is a guaranteed safe option,

everything else is a built in excuse.
I agree but we both know that isnt a realistic expectation.

UFC could partner with supplement companies and have certain products pre-approved or guaranteed to be PED free. UFC could offer sponsorship and advertising opportunities in exchange for a greatly discounted accredited product provided by a partner company. Bonus for fighters who get cheap supplements they don't have to worry about... Good for UFC not to deal with this 'tainted supplement' bullshit... Good for whichever supplement brand is willing to jump through the accreditation hoops. Shitty for cheaters and questionable supplement companies.
