To say it’s been a bad month for the career of current Invicta Featherweight Champ and UFC title contender Cris “Cyborg” Justino would be a massive understatement. The UFC announced today that they have been notified of a potential doping violation from Cyborg stemming from an out of competition drug test.
You can read the official UFC statement below.
“The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on December 5, 2016.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.
Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
What do you think this will mean for Cyborg’s career?
