Recently, Cung Le was popped for PEDs, and given that his bout against Michael Bisping occurred in Macau, the UFC acted as its own regulatory body, acting as the commission for the event. As a result of his failed drug test, they suspended him 12-months, instead of the usual 9 months.

This prompted Le to fight back against the suspension, and even claim that the UFC’s testing procedure was done poorly (Read about that HERE).

Now Piotr Hallmann is coming forward about his recently failed drug test, and also saying that the UFC didn’t properly follow the right procedure when drug testing him in Brazil.

He spoke to BloodyElbow.

“I’m very angry that something like this came up especially the way they handled the whole testing in Brazil was far from being professional. It was clear that the procedure was unreliable and strange to say the least and this should be a big concern for fighters and the UFC. I know that mistakes have been made by the commission which they even admitted. I hope that there is a way to appeal this as my career is now in serious danger and my name has been tainted. I believe that the whole testing procedure is unreliable and this could be a serious matter for future events that will be held in Brazil. I restate my innocence in this matter and I will fight to make this right. I know for a fact that mistakes have been made.”
