Marco Polo Reyes was last seen in the Octagon at UFC Fight Night St. Louis, defeating Matt Frevola by first round knockout.
That may be the last time fans see the fighter in the Octagon for quite some time because he has been notified of a potential drug test violation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Reyes failed for an out of competition sample that was collected on March 8, so the result of his UFC Fight Night St. Louis bout shouldn’t be affected by this finding.
USADA issued the following statement on the matter:
“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Marco Reyes of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on March 8, 2018.
“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Reyes. 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.”
There is no word yet on what kind of punishment that Reyes could be facing or when that announcement could come.
