It’s another black eye for mixed martial arts.
While the dust hasn’t even settled on the news of Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz both failing their UFC 183 post-fight drug tests, Hector Lombard is the latest UFC fighter who has been doping.
The news was confirmed by a Nevada Athletic Commission report that was obtained by MMAFighting.com
Hector Lombard failed his UFC 182 fight night drug test, according to a Nevada Athletic Commission report obtained by MMAFighting.com.
According to the report Lombard tested positive for the anabolic steroid desoxymethyltestosterone. The performance-enhancing drugs is called ‘DMIT’ and is a designer steroid for athletes and body builders. Lombard failed a urine test that was administered after his unanimous decision win over Josh Burkman at UFC 182 on January 3.
The UFC has confirmed that Lombard’s drug test failure was the reason why his April 25 fight against Rory MacDonald was canceled. Dana White and company are in the process of finding a new opponent for MacDonald, while Demetrious Johnson vs. Kyoji Horiguchi for the UFC flyweight title was named as the new UFC 186 co-main event.
