UFC Fight Night 51 ‘Fight of the Night’ participant Piotr Hallman has been popped for performance enhancing drugs, and subsequently suspended for 9 months.
The Brazilian Athletic Commission announced the failure of the drug test today.
All athletes from the card were tested for anti-doping control upon arrival at Nilson Nelson Arena to detect anabolic agents, diuretic/other masking agents, stimulants and cannabinoids. Four athletes were randomly selected to also be tested for erythropoietin (EPO) and levels of human growth hormone (Hgh).
The athlete Piotr Hallman failed the test due to presence of anabolic steroid drostanolone. He will be suspended for nine months, reatroactibve to the date of his fight. To be licensed again by CABMMA, he will need to go through new anti-doping control tests.
The Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) uses WADA accredited lab for its anti-doping control tests.
