USADA flags light heavyweight newcomer

September 30, 2017

Earlier this week, Azamat Murzakanov was flagged by USADA for a potential anti-doping violation.  The Russian was supposed to debut this past June but withdrew due to injury.  He now faces a 2-year suspension from the organization before event beginning.

Murzakanov was flagged for an out-of-sample competition stemming from a September 2nd test.  The light heavyweight was 7-0 prior to the UFC.

Payout Perspective:

Murzakanov was signed by the UFC but has yet to appear in the octagon.  He may never do so due to the flagged test.  He was in the testing pool since he was scheduled to fight in the UFC but had to withdraw due to injury.

Got something to say?
