UFC heavyweight Justin Ledet accepts four-month USADA suspension

Another UFC fighter has been downed by a tainted supplement.

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Justin Ledet has accepted a four-month, anti-doping suspension after testing positive for a banned substance due to a contaminated supplement, USADA announced Wednesday.

Ledet, 29, tested positive for “a metabolite of 1-testosterone and 1-androstenedione” in an out-of-competition drug test from a sample collected Jan. 12, according to a USADA release. Subsequent testing of a supplement declared by Ledet in his sample collection paperwork at a WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City discovered the presence of banned anabolic agents in the product, which has since been added to USADA’s list of high risk supplements.

Ledet’s suspension is retroactive to Feb. 1, meaning he will be cleared to compete in June.

Ledet (7-0) has thus far won both of his UFC appearances, first capturing a unanimous decision over Chase Sherman, then finishing Mark Godbeer via first-round submission. The 28-year-old Texas product is one of the few up-and-coming heavyweights in a UFC division generally bereft of young talent.

The Weekly Grind: Conor McGregor trains to be a jockey, Paige VanZant accepts marriage applications

The life of a professional fighter isn’t all glitz and glamour.

As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choked and twisted into a pretzel on a regular basis isn’t enough, fighters attract a general wackiness that makes their lives, well…interesting.

To commemorate these day-to-day hardships, slip-ups, pranks, and more, we bring you, “The Weekly Grind.”

Anthony Pettis calls out Michael Johnson after UFC Fight Night 94, ‘The Menace’ accepts

After knocking out Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC Fight Night 94 last night (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) in Hidalgo, Texas (see it again here), Michael Johnson was immediately called out by former Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis via Twitter.

Once he caught wind of the callout, Johnson was quick to remind everyone it was he that called out “Showtime” long ago. that said, he is more than willing to take him on (via UFC on Fox Sports).

“If Anthony Pettis fights 55, he dropped to 45 didn’t he? I’m pretty sure I called him out a long time ago and he went down to 145 pounds. But if he wants to fight, Anthony, I’m you’re man, I’m all for it. He’s a great ex-champ and a great guy and I would love to fight him.”

Of course, Anthony’s first choice would be an interim featherweight title fight against Jose Aldo, after the champ called him out, much to the chagrin of Max Holloway.

But, should that fight not be made, Pettis — who made a successful drop to 145 pounds against Charles Oliveira a few weeks ago — is willing to pack on the pounds to return to the division he once ruled.

Anyone oppose?

UFC 203 video: Mickey Gall calls out Sage Northcutt after CM Punk win, ‘Super’ accepts, Dana White says ‘we’ll see’

After spoling CM Punk’s mixed martial arts (MMA) debut last night (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) in Cleveland, Ohio (see it), Mickey Gall took the opportunity to call out his next opponent; singling out fellow “Lookin’ for a Fight” alum, Sage Northcutt.

And just as fast as the call out was made, it was accepted, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White says the Northcutt camp contacted him immediately to accept the bout.

“Well, when he called him out, Sage’s people texted me immediately and they want the fight,” said White during a post-event interview for UFC on FOX. “So we’ll see if that fight happens.”

Of course, White has a policy to not book fights immediately after an event, so it may be a few days or weeks before we get the green light for this potential showdown. If and when it does get booked, it will be interesting to see in what weight division it goes down.

That’s becasue Gall fights at Welterweight while Sage knocks heads in the Lightweight division. However, “Super” did compete at 170-pounds once before. But, it didn’t wokr out too well for him, as he suffered his first loss to Bryan Barbarena at UFC on FOX 18 earlier this year.

But you can blame it on this.

Nevertheless, since both camps are open to the bout, there’s really no reason not to book it, unless the UFC brass is hesitant to pit two young, up-and-coming contenders to fight one another so soon. As it stands, Sage is 3-1 inside the Octagon while Gall improved to 5-0 (2-0 UFC) with his win over Punk.

Can any of you think of any reason why this fight won’t be made soon?

Jon Jones accepts plea deal (again) in drag racing case, avoids jail time (again)

Finally, some good new for the “Bones” camp.

After pleading guilty to unlawful use of modification of exhaust systems and improper display of a registration plate during a hearing in Albuquerque, N.M., earlier today (Aug. 11, 2016), Jon Jones was given a 90-day deferred sentence, avoiding jail time in the process.

That means the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion has to stay out of trouble for the next three months. He will also be required to do 60 hours of community service, attend driving school and and pay a fine of $ 143, according to MMA Fighting.

Jones was issued a total of five citations after he was stopped by a local police officer for his alleged involvement in a drag race this past March in “The Duke City.” That prompted “Bones” to lose his cool and go off on the citing police officer, calling him a “fucking liar” and a “pig” for basically harassing him.

See the full video here.

The good news for Jones is that the other three charges, which include unlawful drag racing, unlawful exhibition driving and failure to maintain traffic lane, were thrown out by the judge.

Jones is currently sitting idle when it comes to his mixed martial arts (MMA) career after he was flagged by USADA for a failed drug test three days prior to his much-anticipated title fight against Daniel Cormier, which was set for UFC 200 on July 9, 2016. Despite maintaining his innocence, it was revealed that Jones tested positive for hydroxy-clomiphene, an anti-estrogen substance which is often used to mask the use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). As a result, he faces a potential two-year ban from the sport from USADA. He has yet to appear before Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to make his case, but that hearing will likely happen sooner than later.
