George Sullivan Pulled From UFC On FOX 20 Due To Anti-Doping Policy Issue

It looks like the USADA Anti-Doping Policy has struck again.

George Sullivan is reportedly out of his scheduled fight against Hector Urbina at this Saturday’s UFC On FOX 20 event in Chicago for attempting to comply with the Anti-Doping Policy.

UFC’s statement on the matter reads as follows:

“UFC competitor George Sullivan voluntarily disclosed information to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) that could pose a potential compliance issue with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy. Out of an abundance of caution, Sullivan has been removed from his scheduled bout on Saturday night against Hector Urbina while USADA conducts an investigation into the matter. Urbina will still weigh in as a potential backup opponent should there be a need for him to compete in another bout on Saturday. Otherwise, he will be re-booked for another card in the near future.”

Headlined by Holly Holm vs. Valentina Shevchenko, UFC On FOX 20 is scheduled to go down on Saturday, July 23rd from Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
