UFC welterweight notified of potential Anti-Doping Policy Violation

July 20, 2018

The UFC has announced that USADA has informed Muslim Salikhov of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation from an out-of-competition sample collected on June 7, 2018 in Russia.

Salikhov was 1-1 in the UFC with his last fight at UFC on Fox 29, a win over fellow welterweight Ricky Rainey.  The 34-year-old Dagestani product has an overall record of 14-2.

Payout Perspective:

It’s still too early to know if this is a case of being caught or if the welterweight will claim that he took a contaminated product or something else.  One would think that Salikhov would be a part of the UFC show in Russia this September but that will now have to wait.

Got something to say?
