Former UFC vet and TUF competitor suspended 4 years by NSAC for use of fake urine

November 14, 2018

Former UFC fighter and TUF contestant Cody McKenzie was suspended 4 years by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for failing to give a urine sample prior to an MMA event in September. McKenzie then tried to provide the commission with fake urine.

The commission decided the 4 years suspension at Tuesday’s hearing. McKenzie did not appear.

According to the commission complaint, McKenzie did not provide a sample to the commission representative the night of his fight. He then provided a fake sample. He then told the representative that he “smoked pot” that day.

McKenzie was ordered to pay costs and fees in the amount of $944.84 associated with the hearing.

Payout Perspective:

If you were to read the commission findings, it sounds that McKenzie attempted to use a “whizzinator” to fake a urine test. The former TUF competitor has had a winding career that has had no direction and clearly suffers from discipline among other issues. A concern about this suspension is that McKenzie will be unable to fight for a living which may be a detriment.
