Carlos Diego Ferreira Flagged By USADA, Pulled From UFC Fight Night 88

UFC issued a statement on Friday to announce Carlos Diego Ferreira has been flagged by USADA for a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation, and as a result, has been pulled from his scheduled fight with Abel Trujillo at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 88 event.

You can read UFC’s official statement on the matter below.

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Carlos Diego Ferreira of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation, stemming from a recent out-of-competition sample collection. In accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, Ferreira has received a provisional suspension, and has been removed from his scheduled bout against Abel Trujillo on May 29 in Las Vegas.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.

UFC will announce a replacement opponent for Trujillo shortly, while additional violation information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
