Michal Oleksiejczuk Suspended One Year, UFC 219 Win Overturned
Light heavyweight Michal Oleksiejczuk has accepted a one-year suspension from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) following a failed test at UFC 219.
Oleksiejczuk’s (13-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) punishment mirrors one handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), which overturned his decision win over Khalil Rountree (6-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) this past December and fined him $3,600 in addition to attorney’s fees.
Oleksiejczuk came up positive for the estrogen blocker clomiphene following an in-competition drug test.
As a condition of his USADA suspension, Oleksiejczuk must submit to random drug testing. He must also provide a clean drug test to the NSAC at intervals of 30, 15, and three days prior to being licensed, and he must pay his fines.
