Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir on Friday was informed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency of a potential in-competition Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from his recent fight with Mark Hunt.
No details of the possible violation have yet been revealed.
Hunt knocked Mir out in the first round of their UFC Fight Night 85 headlining bout on March 20 in Brisbane, Australia, so any sanctioning wouldn’t affect the result of the bout.
The UFC released the following statement on Friday:
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Frank Mir of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected the day of his fight on March 20, 2016 in Brisbane, Australia.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Mir. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.
Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
