Report: NSAC Hands Michal Oleksiejczuk A One Year Suspension


Earlier this year, UFC fighter Michal Oleksiejczuk was notified about a potential drug test violation in line with UFC 219 by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

While USADA has yet to hand down a punishment to the fighter, a separate punishment have been handed out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) according to MMA Junkie.

The NSAC has suspended Oleksiejczuk for one year, plus has issued him two fines of $3,600 (30% of his UFC 219 purse) and $436.08 (NSAC lawyer fees). Oleksiejczuk is going to be able to compete again on December 30th of this year, since the suspension is retroactive to the date of the test failure.

Outside of those punishments, another move made by the NSAC against Oleksiejczuk is to overturn his win against Khalil Rountree at UFC 219 to a no contest.

Oleksiejczuk also has to reapply for a fighting license from the NSAC, but can only do so after passing a trio of drug tests 30 days, 15 days and 3 days prior to reapplication, plus the fighter would still have to pay all the monetary penalties handed down.

If USADA also hands down a suspension to Oleksiejczuk, it could run concurrent with the suspension handed down by the NSAC, assuming that a one year suspension is given by USADA.
