Unfortunate news surfaced this weekend that UFC middleweight Adam Hunter had been pulled from his scheduled UFC Vancouver fight with Ryan Janes on Saturday on less than 24 hours notice after a ‘Potential USADA Violation’ was reported from an out-of-competition drug test earlier this month.
Without enough time to further investigate the potential failure, the UFC was forced to scrap the fight. Janes, who won’t receive a replacement opponent on such short notice, was less than thrilled with the situation.
He released a statement via BloodyElbow:
“F—k that cheat. He got out easy. And I wish I was surprised.”
Fortunately for Janes, the UFC will pay him not only his ‘show’ money for the event, but also his ‘win’ money.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
