Lyman Good zes maanden geschorst na overtreding USADA

April 4th, 2017 | by Lennart Van Arendonk

De 31-jarige New Yorker stond ingeroosterd om op 12 november 2016 te vechten tegen Belal Muhammad. Maar na een positieve out-of-competition test op illegale prestatiebevorderende middelen moest hij zijn plek afstaan aan Vicente Luque. Vijf maanden na deze test heeft Good eindelijk zijn straf gehoord. Hij wordt voor zes maanden geschorst, echter zijn er hiervan al vijf maanden van voorbij. Vanaf volgende maand mag Good weer aan de bak.

Dit zijn de woorden van USADA:

Following notification of his positive test, Good provided USADA with information about a dietary supplement product he was using at the time of the relevant sample collection. Although no prohibited substances were listed on the supplement label, testing conducted on an independently sourced, unopened container of the product by the WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah, indicated that it contained 1-androstenedione. The presence of an undisclosed prohibited substance in a product is regarded as contamination. Accordingly, the product has since been added to the High Risk List of supplements maintained on USADA’s online dietary supplement safety education and awareness resource – Supplement 411 ( Athletes are reminded that even seemingly low-risk dietary supplements may contain prohibited substances, which may not be listed on the Supplement Facts label, thus USADA encourages athletes through Supplement 411 to challenge the reasons for using supplements and make themselves aware of how to reduce their risks of a positive anti-doping test and/or an adverse health event.

Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, as well as the World Anti-Doping Code, the determination that an athlete’s positive test was caused by a contaminated product may result in a reduced sanction. The sanction for a doping offense resulting from the use of a contaminated product ranges from a reprimand and no period of ineligibility, at a minimum, to a two-year period of ineligibility, at a maximum.

Good maakte zijn UFC debuut tijdens UFC Fight Night: Mir vs. Duffee in 2015. Met een professioneel van 19–3 (1) hoopt hij zijn verloren tijd snel weer in te halen. Zo wil hij naast zijn Bellator MMA titel en CFFC titel, graag kampioen worden bij de UFC.
