UFC's Grant Dawson notified of potential USADA violation

UFC's Grant Dawson notified of potential USADA violation”

Moments after UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor jumped into the cage at Bellator 187 and shoved referee Marc Goddard before slapping a security guard, news has come that another UFC superstar has been flagged for his second potential USADA violation. Due to the proximity of Silva's upcoming scheduled bout at UFC Fight Night, Shanghai, China on November 25, 2017 against Kelvin Gastelum, Silva has been removed from the card and UFC is now seeking a replacement.

UFC said in a statement that it was notified by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that Silva may have violated the policy based on an out-of-competition sample collected on October 26, resulting in his being provisionally suspended by USADA.

Silva is afforded an adjudication process with USADA before any potential punishment would be handed down due to this latest infraction of the UFC's anti-doping policy.

This time Silva has failed an out of competition drug test for his upcoming fight against Kelvin Gastelum in Shanghai.

This marks the second time in almost three years that Silva has been flagged for a potential violation, with his first coming back in January 2015. This latest drug test will nearly certainly hurt the 42-year-old Silva's legacy even more.

Regarded by many as one of the greatest fighters of all time, Silva, now 42, has struggled in his later years.

Silva last fought in February where he earned a close decision win against Derek Brunson in NY.

It's unclear what Silva tested positive for, or how long he could potentially be suspended. But with "The Spider" set to turn 43 in April of next year, it's entirely plausible that this incident could force him into a relatively early retirement.
