Beating down cheaters just became a reality for the UFC’s flyweight champ, and he didn’t even know it.
In a recent statement to MMAFighting.com, Demetrious Johnson stated,
“I’m disappointed to hear that Bagautinov tested positive for EPO. That’s very unfortunate news. But the moral of this story is that I proved on June 14 that you don’t need to cheat, you don’t need PEDs to be a champion. I am proud to be a clean champion and I believe that talent will beat drugs every time out, just like it did last month in Vancouver.”
