UFC statement on Guido Cannetti

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Guido Cannetti of a potential Anti-Doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on October 5, 2016. USADA has provisionally suspended Cannetti based on the potential anti-doping violation.

Cannetti was scheduled to fight Marco Beltran next Saturday in Mexico City. The UFC is currently exploring whether a replacement to fight Beltran can be arranged.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
