Women’s Bantamweight flagged by USADA for potential violation

December 1, 2017

UFC women’s bantamweight Amanda Lemos has been flagged for a potential UFC anti-doping violation.  The 30-year-old Brazilian has just one fight with the promotion.

Lemos lost to Leslie Smith this past July at UFC Fight Night 113.  Prior to her time with the UFC, she fought in Brazil with the Jungle Fight promotion.


The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Amanda Lemos of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on November 8, 2017.

Payout Perspective:

The UFC will likely issue its standard comment regarding these notifications.  Lemos fought exclusively in Brazil prior to her fight in Scotland against Smith.
