UFC fighter gets one month suspension for cocaine use

The UFC career of flyweight Juancamilo Ronderos is not off to a great start. Following an unsuccessful Octagon debut, where get got submitted by David Dvorak, the Colombian has now failed an in-competition USADA test for cocaine and accepted the one-month suspension for the infraction. The test dates back to the day of UFC Vegas 27, May 22, when Ronderos met and was finished by Dvorak. Per USADA’s official statement, the punishment is retroactive to the day of the test, meaning that Ronderos is already eligible to compete again. You can read the whole document below: ““USADA announced today that Juancamilo Ronderos Alvis, of Las Vegas, Nev., has accepted a one-month sanction for a violation of the UFC® Anti-Doping Policy. Alvis, 26, tested positive for cocaine and its metabolite benzoylecgonine as the result of a sample collected in competition at the UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas on May 22, 2021. Cocaine, a non-Specified stimulant, is prohibited in-competition and considered a Substance of Abuse under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy and the UFC Prohibited List.” “An athlete who discloses the use of a prohibited substance to USADA upon entering the UFC Anti-Doping Program will not be deemed to have committed a violation if USADA determines that a positive test for that substance resulted from the athlete’s use prior to entering the program. Alvis did not declare the use of cocaine on his onboarding declaration forms. Alvis received a reduction to the otherwise applicable period of ineligibility because under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, athletes may receive a reduced sanction for Substances of Abuse if they can establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the violation did not enhance, and was not intended to enhance, the athlete’s performance in a Bout and they subsequently complete a drug rehabilitation program.” Before his disappointing UFC debut, Ronderos (4-1) was on a four-fight winning streak at regional organization Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting, where he scored two submission and two decision wins, including one over former UFC fighter Eric Shelton.
Dillashaw says Sandhagen was ‘lucky’ not to get finished

T.J. Dillashaw defeated Cory Sandhagen on July 24. | Photo by Jeff Bottari/Zuffa LLCFormer bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw says he would have stopped Cory Sandhagen if not for a prior injury. Former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw did score a split decision win over Cory Sandhagen is his return after two years away from the Octagon. However, the 35-year-old believes he could have done an even better job and finished the ‘Sandman’, had it not been for a knee injury he suffered in the fight. On Bruce Buffer’s podcast ‘It’s Time’, Dillashaw mentioned how his back takes could have been more effective if his leg were healthy. Nonetheless, he is still satisfied with the way the fight developed, because he was able to showcase more of skills and state of mind in a 25-minute battle. “Cory is really lucky that my knee was messed up when I took his back so many times, because it would have been a different story if I was actually able to lift him or throw my hooks in. When I took his back, I tried doing a couple of trips. But every time – I remember lifting him in the second round, I took his back and my knee completely buckled on me and I was like ‘Oh, we can’t do that anymore.” “So a lot of those back controls would have been – I believe I would have finished him if my leg would have been healthy.” Dillashaw continued. “But you know what? Maybe it’s better I didn’t. I got to show that I have that grit, I have that comeback mentality, I have that fight-through-adversity, and I showed that my cardio is second to none. No one is going to outpace me. I work harder than everyone. So maybe it worked out in my favor. I built a lot of fans back in that fight.” Dillashaw has since learned that his injured knee is due to a bucket handle tear of the lateral meniscus and a lateral collateral ligament rupture. The ailments will require surgery, but recovery time should not be very long. Dillashaw (17-4) served a two-year USADA suspension after testing positive for banned substance EPO, which stimulates red blood cell production in the bone marrow, on January 19, 2019. That day, the 35-year-old lost his bantamweight belt to Henry Cejudo via TKO, but before that he was on a four-fight winning streak, with victories over Cody Garbrandt, John Lineker and Raphael Assuncao.
