Former UFC heavyweight champion is out of his scheduled UFC 215 bout with surging division contender Francis Ngannou.

The out-of-competition drug test in question was taken by USADA on August 10.

At this moment details on the nature of his anti-doping violation are being withheld.

No word yet on if Francis Ngannou will remain on the UFC 215 pay-per-view card.
