Junior Dos Santos Charged For Potential Doping Violation

The trend which is seeing the fall of major UFC fights apart stayed and witnessed on Friday as well, when Junior Dos Santos was dragged from his bout of UFC 215 opposite Francis Ngannou over the matter of a potential violation of doping.


The UFC released a statement recently; it is the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and informed dos Santos very clearly that it seems he has violated the policy of UFC after a sample collected from the player’s body when he was out-of-competition on Aug. 10. The test turned positive. After the confirmation of the information that dos Santos sample is found positive, UFC took the action against the player.

UFC pulled dos Santos from his next fight because of the reason. The upcoming fight of the player was scheduled in Sept. 9 in Edmonton, Canada.

After pulling dos Santos, UFC says they are looking for the replacement to fight against Ngannou on the card.

Dos Santos has lost dating from four of his last seven fights of UFC 155 in December 2012. Meanwhile, in May, he was knocked out by the present champion of UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic in just 2:22.

The fight of Dos Santos vs. Ngannou was billed as fight No. 3 on the card of UFC 215 behind the flyweight championship bout between Ray Borg and Demetrious Johnson, and the bantamweight title fight of women between Valentina Shevchenko and Amanda Nunes.

Dos Santos has not reacted to the charges of doping yet. However, the fans of Santos and well as the wrestling lovers are disappointed after hearing this news. This is not like Dos Santos is the first who has been found positive in the doping case; more and more players from the world of wrestling are found indulging in these cases. And this is spoiling the credibility of wrestling.
