On Tuesday, UFC welterweight contender Hector Lombard was placed on temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission for testing positive to a designer steroid following his UFC 182 win over Josh Burkman.
Lombard tested positive for Desoxymethyltestosterone, commonly known as Madol.
“Madol has rightfully earned a solid reputation for being an extremely potent muscle and strength gaining oral steroid that is 60-percent more anabolic (muscle building) than testosterone, yet only 60-percent as androgenic (impacting male sex characteristics),” according to Steroid.com.
Lombard was scheduled to face Rory MacDonald in the UFC 186 co-main event on April 25, but the bout was scrapped when the 37-year-old’s UFC 182 drug tests results came back positive.
The Cuban Olympian will face disciplinary action during a full hearing when the NAC meets in March. The date for the March meeting has yet to be determined.
