Frank Mir Is Considering Legal Against Against USADA


Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir was suspended by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for failing an in-competition drug test in March of 2016.

Mir, who is now a part of the Bellator MMA roster, has been considering legal action against the drug testing agency due to the affects of what they did had done to his career.

“I’ve lost millions,” Mir said to RT. “I had six more fights on a contract that paid me well. If you have noticed, my last fight, I didn’t even have sponsors. It’s difficult right now to rebuild up everything because of having to battle back from being falsely accused of something. It makes things difficult.”

The former heavyweight champion has since moved onto Bellator MMA, but has gone winless in the promotion thus far.

Another aspect of the failed drug test that Mir doesn’t like is how the UFC handled the situation from their end.

“That’s kind of dirty,” Mir said. “That’s not really working in good faith. You have an athlete under contract, not allowed to work anywhere else. He’s suspended, yeah. But he could get the ball rolling, maybe start looking for work in other areas. But no, you keep him under contract. And then at the end of his suspension, he gets a release letter. … So, I’m not really happy about their conduct, either.”

There has been no legal filing from Mir against USADA as of this writing.
