Tuesday’s decision by the Ultimate Fighting Championship to rescind a suspension handed down to Cung Le was a curious one.

For those unaware, Le was sent to the sidelines for 12 months after a blood sample taken after his August 23 loss to Michael Bisping showed an elevated level of human growth hormone.

There was rampant speculation prior to the fight that Le was taking a performance-enhancing drug of some sort. Nearly all of this speculation stemmed from a photo Le posted on Instagram that showed significant improvements in his physique. They were remarkable improvements, really, when you consider Le’s age.

Le proclaimed his innocence then, saying the new muscles he displayed were mostly the result of perfect lighting in the moment the photo was snapped. We were skeptical. And when Le’s test results were announced, the reaction from the general public was: See? We told you so.

But then we started to hear about how the Hong Kong Functional Medical Testing Center—the company that handled the UFC’s testing for the Macau event—was not actually accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

And this is an important bit, because in the UFC’s drive to expand its global footprint, it often acts as its own sanctioning body. In countries that have no commission, the UFC will do its own testing. This is a tricky thing, but the promotion has always been adamant that it follows Nevada Athletic Commission guidelines when acting as its own commission.

Except this time, it didn’t. Nevada and other major athletic commissions use WADA-accredited labs to handle all of their testing, and there is a reason they do so: Testing for human growth hormone is not an easy process, as detailed by Steven Marrocco from MMAjunkie.com:

In order to attain such accreditation, the labs must demonstrate their ability to perform the complex procedure involved in finding HGH and must follow strict procedures set by the regulatory body in the collection and testing of blood samples needed to find the drug. There are also defined steps for adverse findings and what happens when results are challenged.

WADA also requires that tested blood samples be frozen for a lengthy period of time so that more testing may be done if required. Le, claiming innocence after his suspension was handed down, wanted his sample tested again by a WADA-accredited lab. But that was impossible, because the Hong Kong Functional Medical Testing Center had already destroyed the sample.

The UFC said in a press release that Le’s suspension was rescinded because it’d been provided with additional medical advice:

Following the announcement of Le’s suspension, UFC officials have been provided with medical advice regarding the elevated total HGH present in Le’s system. In accordance with such medical advice, UFC has determined that Le’s elevated total HGH by itself does not prove that he took performance-enhancing drugs before the August 23rd bout.

That begs the question: What kind of medical advice was it receiving when it decided to suspend Le in the first place? And wouldn’t it be better to obtain all of this medical advice before (perhaps incorrectly) announcing to the world that one of your fighters was using performance-enhancing drugs?

Perhaps Le was using PEDs. Perhaps he wasn’t. We’ll never know, because the handling of his test was so poorly done that it amounts to a total whitewash. The decision to rescind Le’s suspension was the right one. But it opens the door to a larger conversation about how these things are handled when the UFC is sanctioning itself.

In announcing the decision to rescind Le’s suspension, the UFC also said this

The UFC organization has always been a leader when it comes to testing for performance-enhancing drugs in combat sports. All UFC athletes know they are subject to drug testing by an applicable state athletic commission, an international governing federation, or by an independent laboratory contracted by the UFC when no regulatory body is overseeing the event. In those cases where regulatory oversight is unavailable, UFC voluntarily chooses to adhere to the highest level of athlete health and safety protocols similar to if the event were being held in the state of Nevada.

There, at the end of that paragraph, it repeats the same sentiment it’s been using for several years: We know that having no regulatory oversight is not ideal, but we counter by sticking to the gold standard laid down by Nevada.

Except this time, it didn’t. It used a lab that was not accredited by WADA and that most certainly is not in accordance with Nevada’s standards.

It must be said that the UFC is taking major steps to counter MMA‘s drug problem. CEO Lorenzo Fertitta recently revealed the promotion’s efforts to create a new program that will randomly test all UFC athletes multiple times per year. 

This is no small thing, and it must be applauded. It’s getting a big thing done, and it’s spending a lot of money to do it.

But at the same time, it must be extra careful to adhere to the standards it’s set for itself when it’s acting as its own sanctioning body, because those are the situations that make people uncomfortable. Whether it’s warranted or not, they feel ripe with potential for abuse and controversy. I don’t believe Fertitta, Dana White or Marc Ratner would ever intentionally bend their sanctioning rules to protect one of their stars, but whether they’d actually do it isn’t important. 

The perception is what is important.

So this is a learning experience for the UFC, or at least I hope it is. I don’t believe we’ll ever see it use a non-accredited lab for testing again. If that’s the major takeaway from this whole story, it’s a good thing. Mixed martial arts will never be considered anything more than a niche sport if the public thinks it is filled with juiced-up cheaters.

As the market leader, the UFC will have the biggest hand in helping change and guard against that perception. True random testing is a very big deal, but getting things right when it is self-regulating may be the most important thing it does.

Cain Velasquez’s long-awaited return to the Octagon will have to once again be put on hold, as a knee injury will keep the heavyweight champ from appearing in UFC 180’s main event.

The UFC Twitter account confirmed the news, noting Fabricio Werdum’s new opponent:

Velasquez talked about the injury and apologized to the Mexican fans, via UFC.com:

I’m so unbelievably disappointed that this happened. To say I was looking forward to fighting in Mexico for the first time is an understatement. I wanted to fight on that card so bad. Looks like it wasn’t meant to be and it’s not going to happen. I’m going to get my [right] knee fixed and get back to training as soon as I can. I’m sorry to the fans in Mexico who were expecting this fight, and I hope to be able to come down and still be a part of this historic event.

This is an unfortunate development, as many were looking forward to seeing Velasquez defend his title for the first time since knocking out Junior dos Santos just over a year ago.

Alas, injuries have continually limited the 32-year-old’s time inside the cage. He already missed time in 2011 and 2012 with a knee injury, and his most recent extended absence was due to shoulder surgery.

As USA Today‘s Mike Bohn pointed out, this has been an ongoing problem for the UFC, not just Velasquez:

Werdum vs. Mark Hunt should be an intriguing battle, but the main event won’t be nearly as captivating without a title on the line.

Mixed martial arts is a chaotic sport where two athletes step into a cage to battle for physical supremacy, and it is the competition of it all that drives Chad Mendes. 

The Team Alpha Male standout and current No. 1 contender to the featherweight crown has been in some form of athletic competition since the age of five, and he’s grown up adhering to a belief in sportsmanship and an appreciation for those he has competed against.

That courtesy does not extend to Jose Aldo.

While the mutual respect between champion and challenger was obvious before and in the immediate aftermath of their first bout at UFC 142 back in 2012, that particular element between the two men has dissolved over the past two years.

Although both Aldo and Mendes have continued on their respective paths and have been successful in every outing since their first meeting, “Junior” has never hesitated to launch a barb in the former title challenger’s direction when he’s asked about Mendes in interviews.

The Nova Uniao leader has launched a series of veiled allegations in Mendes’ direction, suggesting the Sacramento-based fighter uses special “supplements” to gain an athletic edge, per C.J. Tuttle of Sherdog. And while Mendes has always responded to those accusations in kind, “Money” has also lived up to his nickname, as he’s put together an impressive five-fight winning streak to earn his way back to another title opportunity.

He will get another shot at the pound-for-pound great at UFC 179 this Saturday night, and Mendes is coming into Rio de Janeiro as a man on a mission. Not only will he be looking to fulfill his dream of becoming the featherweight champion, but he also has every intention of making the long-reigning champion eat his words.

“There is always somewhat of a personal aspect to every fight,” Mendes told Bleacher Report. “It’s just the nature of the business. Obviously I respect Aldo as a fighter. He’s the champion and I can’t come into this fight not respecting his talent and skill level. I obviously do respect him in that sense. It’s something I’ve trained for and prepared my mind and body to get in there and face the champion.

“But he said a lot of s–t about me in the media and that’s not cool. Whether he respects me or not, if you want to say these things to sell a fight or whatever caused you to say them, my like for you has gone completely out the window. This is now a fight against a person who is trying to beat me up and trying to take the money I use to put food in my mouth. This no longer has anything to do with me liking or respecting him. There is going to be a war in there.

“The ultimate goal is to win the title. That is something that needs to happen in my mind. My mindset is to go in there and take the belt from whoever has it, and he’s the one holding it right now.”

Coming into their first meeting at UFC 142, the bout was the classic “striker vs. wrestler” pairing from a stylistic standpoint. While the rematch will still hold similar aspects, both fighters’ skill sets have progressed from their tilt two years ago. On that front, Mendes has definitely shown the most improvement, as he’s expanded his dynamic wrestling base to include power striking with proven knockout capabilities. Of his current five-fight winning streak, only one of those victories went to the judges’ cards, as the other four opponents suffered knockout losses.

That said, Aldo has built an impressive winning streak in his own right, as the reigning champion has notched 17 consecutive wins since November 2005. It has been nearly a decade since the Brazilian knockout artist last tasted defeat, but Mendes is confident he has what it takes to dethrone the featherweight king at UFC 179. 

“I’ve watched a lot of tape leading up to my first fight with Jose and I’ve watched every fight he’s had since then. He hasn’t made a ton of improvements. Jose is really damn good at what he does and that is why he’s the champion. He hasn’t had any reason to change anything up because he’s been beating everyone with what works for him. 

“I feel like I’ve made major improvements in my game. The first time we fought I was only two fights into the UFC. When I watch the tape, I look like I was a baby in there. I look so much younger and smaller and I feel I’ve grown up a lot as both a person and a fighter since then. I truly believe this is going to be a different fight the second time around. It’s been over two years now and I’m a much better fighter.

“I’m more experienced with everything about my fight game now,” he added. “Even making the trip to Brazil for this fight is something I feel comfortable with. For my first fight with Jose, that was the first time I had ever flown out of the country and fought in an opponent’s backyard. It was a big learning experience for me and I have that aspect under control. I’ve also done a lot of game planning for this fight with Duane Ludwig and the new head coach at Alpha Male, Martin Kampmann. It just came down to meshing the two views on Aldo with what works for my body and fighting style and I believe we have a great game plan to win this fight.”

Cain Velasquez is injured and will no longer defend his UFC heavyweight title against Fabricio Werdum at UFC 180. Instead, popular heavyweight Mark Hunt will step in to face Werdum for the interim title at the Nov. 15 event. 

That’s according to a Tuesday report from Sherdog.

A lot of MMA fans will surely be disappointed by the news. Velasquez is proving to be nearly as injury-prone outside of the cage as he is dominant inside of it. UFC 180 is scheduled to take place in Mexico City in front of a fanbase with which Velasquez, a Mexican-American, strongly identifies.

The exact nature of Velasquez’s injury was not immediately disclosed, other than to say it was an injury to his knee.

The interim title distinction adds some of the lost intrigue back into the UFC 180 main event. And the move makes sense for the UFC given that the lineal heavyweight champ has not fought in more than a year thanks to injuries.

Velasquez tore his shoulder labrum in his last bout, a TKO of Junior dos Santos, in late 2013. He underwent surgery for the injury and was returning to more active training, but then a hand injury caused a further setback. 

Either way, UFC 180 was to be Velasquez’s return. His next big return, for the moment, is unclear.

Hunt vs. Werdum should make for an interesting scrap. Hunt is a dyed-in-the-wool knockout artist, while Werdum is one of the best heavyweight grapplers on the planet. Werdum’s stand-up game is probably better than Hunt’s grappling game, which could give the early odds edge to Brazilian Werdum over Hunt.

Pawel Wolak’s professional mixed martial arts debut finally has a date and a venue.

View full post on Recent News on Sherdog.com

Cung Le is back in the UFC after UFC officials rescinded the middleweight’s suspension, which they originally handed down when Le supposedly failed an August drug test the UFC itself administered.

The UFC announced the decision Tuesday in a statement, which was initially reported by Damon Martin of Fox Sports. Le had failed the screening, UFC officials originally reported, for excess levels of human growth hormone.

In part, the UFC statement read:

Following the announcement of Le’s suspension, UFC officials have been provided with medical advice regarding the elevated total HGH present in Le’s system. In accordance with such medical advice, UFC has determined that Le’s elevated total HGH by itself does not prove that he took performance-enhancing drugs before the August 23rd bout. As a result, UFC has informed Le that his suspension is rescinded.

The test came after Le, 42, took a bloody fourth-round TKO loss to Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 48 in Hong Kong.

Soon after receiving word of the suspension, Le and his management team announced Le would appeal the decision. Le would have been the first fighter to appeal a drug test failure found by the UFC. Tuesday’s statement from the UFC was handed down before that process could play out.

Inside North America, an athletic commission typically oversees the drug testing process. However, in the case of the Fight Night 48 card in Hong Kong and other international cards, the UFC oversees the testing process.

At first, the suspension was for nine months. But shortly after, the UFC extended the suspension to 12 months after it decided Le’s behavior had violated the promotion’s Code of Conduct.

Both Le and, to a lesser extent, the UFC have been subject to heavy criticism throughout the process. For the moment, it appears that Le, and not the UFC, will be the one with cause to celebrate.
