Jesse Taylor Shocked By Potential USADA Violation

UFC Ultimate Fighter Redemption winner Jesse Taylor was recently notified by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of a potential violation.

Due to the potential violation, the fighter has also been removed from an upcoming bout against Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night Sydney.

Taylor has now issued his first statement since the potential violation was announced, saying he is shocked by USADA’s findings and declaring that he has never used steroids.

It was through Twitter that the statement was issued:

The fighter joins other high profile fighters such as former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones as fighters who have been popped by USADA as of late.

There is no word yet on what kind of punishment the fighter could be facing or when that potential penalty would be announced.
