One-time UFC competitor Nick Roehrick has been flagged for a possible anti-doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on Aug. 8.
The full statement released by the Las Vegas-based promotion on Thursday regarding Roehrick is as follows:
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Roehrick of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on August 8, 2017.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Roehnick. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
Roehrick made his Octagon debut on short notice at “The Ultimate Fighter 25” finale, stepping in for Steve Bosse against Jared Cannonier on July 7. The Orlando, Fla., native would ultimately fall to Cannonier via third-round technical knockout in the light heavyweight contest. It was Roehrick’s first feat in eight professional outings.
