Light heavyweight flagged by USADA

January 25, 2018

Coming off of a victory last month in his debut with the organization at UFC 219, Michal Oleksiejczuk was put on provisional suspension after an in-competition test was flagged for a potential banned substance.

Oleksiejczuk defeated Khalil Rhountree via unanimous decision.


The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Michal Oleksiejczuk of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected in conjunction with his recent bout against Khalil Roundtree at UFC 219 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30, 2017.

Payout Perspective:

Bad news for the 22-year old who was 12-2 prior to entering the UFC.  The report does not indicate the banned substance so we will wait and see if he will mount a defense.
