Report: NSAC Gives Cynthia Calvillo A 9 Month Suspension


Cynthia Calvillo was notified of a potential violation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for a failed drug test in line with UFC 219.

USADA has already punished the fighter, giving her a six month suspension, but now the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has chimed in as well according to MMA Junkie.

The NSAC has given the female fighting star a nine month suspension, plus two fines of $6,160 (30% of fight purse) and $436.08 (NSAC attorney fees). Since Calvillo suffered a defeat to former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Carla Esparza at the event, no change is going to be made to the result of that fight.

Calvillo was initially able to return to action on June 6 of this year due to the USADA suspension, but now she won’t be able to fight against until September 6 of this year with the NSAC suspension.

Due to the NSAC issued suspension, one thing Calvillo will have to do in order to fight in the state of Nevada again is to reapply for a fighters license. Calvillo would also need to pass a series of drug tests 30 days, 15 days and 3 days prior to the application process beginning.

This is the second suspension handed out in line with UFC 219 by the NSAC, as Michal Oleksiejczuk received a six month suspension from the governing board.
