All combatants accepted a six-month suspension after USADA got here to the conclusion that no ingestion was achieved deliberately, because the findings have been per that of a tainted complement.

From USADA’s assertion:

USADA has resolved the next circumstances, after conducting an intensive investigation and discovering no proof of intentional use, per different complement contamination circumstances:

Ostarine, also called MK-2866 and Enobosarm, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that’s illegally bought worldwide as a performance-enhancing substance. Ostarine isn’t at present out there as a prescription medicine in any nation, and its unauthorized use could carry critical uncomfortable side effects. Nonetheless, ostarine has generally been discovered as a declared and undeclared ingredient in lots of dietary dietary supplements. Extra details about the dangers of ostarine will be discovered by way of a USADA athlete advisory.

Should you’re questioning why USADA hadn’t talked about something earlier seeing as how the checks have been performed in 2018, it’s as a consequence of its new coverage that no case might be made public till an intensive investigation is full.

One thing, I’m certain, each Anderson Silva and Josh Barnett would’ve beloved to have in place whereas they have been coping with their points with the drug testing company.
