Fabricio Werdum Talks About Failed Drug Test

Brazilian submission dude Fabricio Werdum has been the UFC’s “go to” heavyweight of late, hopping on cards all over the world to give people a reason to tune in. But alas, a run in with USADA will likely have Werdum on ice – possibly for about 80 years if USADA conducts any sort of investigation into tainted supplements or whatever.

Anyhoo, Werdum took to social media to address the failed test. He doesn’t really say mea culpa, he just says his team is working on resolving things.

(Hopefully, it’s not the same people who advised Jon Jones to go before the athletic commission with nothing but a shrug as his defense.)

Fala galera Fui pego de surpresa com a notícia de que um dos exames colhidos pela USADA em abril deu positivo para uma substância proibida. Me coloquei à disposição da USADA e do UFC e estou trabalhando com a minha equipe para entender o que aconteceu. Eu sempre fui muito cuidadoso com tudo o que eu tomo e sempre apoiei o esporte limpo. Vocês podem ter certeza de que vamos esclarecer esse mal entendido e espero em breve poder voltar a fazer o que eu amo, que é lutar. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Hey guys, I got up this morning to the news that one of my urine samples from April tested positive for a prohibited substance. I am working with my team, the UFC and USADA to understand what happened. I’ve always been careful with everything I take and I’ve always supported a clean sport. We will work hard to solve this misunderstanding and I hope soon to be able to go back to the octagon and do what I love

Uriah Hall vs. Vitor Belfort removed from UFC St. Louis after ‘Prime Time’ failed to weigh in

With just more than 24 hours to go, UFC Fight Night 124 has lost its co-main event, as middleweight Uriah Hall failed to step on the scales earlier today (Sat., Jan. 13, 2018) for official weigh ins (full results here).

UFC broadcaster Brendan Fitzgerald announced that Hall could not step on the scale at the end of the weigh-in window, but offered no reason for the disappearance. As a result of Hall’s inability to make weight, his anticipated showdown with former UFC champion Vitor Belfort has been scrapped from the card.

According to a recent report by MMAjunkie’s John Morgan, Hall was apparently one pound away from the 186-pound threshold before medical issues forced him to stop cutting weight.

This is an unfortunate turn of events not only for Hall, who was on the cusp of his most high-profile Octagon appearance to date, but also Belfort, who was planning on walking away from mixed martial arts (MMA) after this weekend in St. Louis.

Hall revealed earlier this week in an interview with MMAjunkie that his “body shut down” last month, so maybe that had something to do with his weight-cut struggles. For what it’s worth, “Prime Time” has never failed to successfully make weight in his UFC career.

As a result of the co-main event fallout, Michael Johnson’s featherweight debut opposite Darren Elkins will now be moved to the main card.

Stick with Mania for further updates on Hall’s condition.
