UFC Removes Emil Meek From Fight Night 93 Card

The UFC has removed Emil Meek from UFC Fight Night 93 after the fighter admitted to a medical treatment that could keep him out of compliance with the USADA.

Meek, who finished Rousimar Palhares for Venator in Italy recently, was set to make his Octagon debut on the UFC Fight Pass card. The promotion plans to give him time to get enrolled in the USADA “registered testing pool” before putting him on a future card.

Below is the complete press release:

“As part of the athlete onboarding process, Emil Meek voluntarily disclosed medical treatment he received prior to signing with UFC that is potentially out of compliance with UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy. As a result, Meek will not compete in his previously scheduled bout on September 3, 2016 in Hamburg, Germany in order to allow him time to consult with his physician and evaluate his medical treatment.

“Given Meek’s medical treatment occurred before his signing with UFC, he is not subject to any potential anti-doping violations under the policy relating to that treatment. However, UFC is requiring Meek to be enrolled in USADA’s registered testing pool for a period of four months before he is placed on a fight card in the future.”
