United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) heeft de Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) geïnformeerd van een mogelijke overtreding op illegale prestatiebevorderende middelen. Magny zou tijdens een ‘Out of Competition test’ Di-Hydroxy-LGD-4033 in zijn systeem hebben gehad. Magny stond oorspronkelijk ingeroosterd om aanstaande zaterdag te knokken tegen Vicente Luque.

As many of you know, I had to withdraw from my sceduled bout against Vicente Luque on Saturday, May 18th. I want to apologize to him, as I know how difficult it is to lose an opponent days out from a fight. Throughout my MMA career I have been very transparent. I am not afraid to admit when I am in the wrong. On Saturday, May 11, 2019, I recieved an email from USADA stating that I have been flagged due to an "out of competition drug test". The flag was due to a metabolite of the substance "Di-Hydroxy-LGD-4033". I have fully cooperated with USADA thus far to determine how this substance was found in the sample I provided them on May 5, 2019. I have always been an advocate for the strict drug testing in the UFC, even to the extent of opting for my collected samples to be used for research purposes by USADA. I know without a doubt that I have done everything according to the standards set by USADA. I have faith in USADA that this situation will resolved in a timely manner and that I will be cleared of any wrong doing. To all of my fans and supporters, thank you. I assure you that I have not let you down.

Het enige wat Magny nu kan doen is wachten op de definitieve uitslag. De organisatie heeft geen vervanger gevonden voor zijn tegenstander. Het evenement waar Magny zou vechten wordt afgesloten door Rafael dos Anjos en Kevin Lee.
