Wensday night it was made public that UFC light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar had tested positive to Boldenone which is a banned substance. Boldenone is the same substance that former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett tested positive for after his victory over Randy Couture in March of 2002. Dana White stated that he supports the NSAC and their work to keep the sport clean.
“Obviously, we need to wait and hear Stephan’s side of the story, but the UFC wholeheartedly supports the commission’s continuing efforts to keep this sport clean and to protect the athletes,” said UFC President Dana White. “I hope this is the type of news we never have to hear again in professional sports.”
