Den 24-årige Sean O’Malley har återigen fastnat i dopningskontroll.
O’Malley, som skulle ha mött Marlon Vera på UFC 239, meddelade nyheten via sitt Instagram-konto. Enligt O´Malley ska det handla om att han fortfarande har spår av det otillåtna ämnet osterine. Ämnet ska O´Malley ha fått i sig det via kontaminerat kosttillskott, något som han flaggades för i oktober förra året. Tidigare i år fick O´Malley 6 månaders avstängning då de fann underlag för amerikanens försvar.
I want to share the facts with you about my latest USADA tests and how it affects my fight next month. USADA has notified me that Ostarine, the substance that showed up in my system last year and led to USADA sanctioning me, has resurfaced at an extremely low level in two recent tests. The good news is that USADA says this is most likely residual from last year and that low level is providing me with no performance advantage. That’s why USADA is not re-sanctioning me for these test results. I already served a USADA sanction for the presence of Ostarine in my system, and it has decreased dramatically since last year.
The bad news is that the Nevada State Athletic Commission has temporarily suspended me while they look into the situation. While I feel terrible to let down my fans who were looking forward to watching me fight in Las Vegas next month, I look forward to publicly discussing my case before the Nevada State Athletic Commission with scientific experts who can explain why very low levels of Ostarine are showing up in my system. I want to make one thing very clear — I have never purposely taken any prohibited substances to gain an advantage. I will subject myself to whatever additional testing is required of me by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I want to get this situation finally cleared up so I can return to the Octagon as soon as I can.
