Weber Meek pulled from UFC card for potentially being out of compliance with USADA

Emil Weber Meek has been pulled from UFC Fight Night 93 in Hamburg as he voluntarily disclosed medical treatment he received prior to signing with UFC that is potentially out of compliance with UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy.

Emil Weber Meek was scheduled to compete on UFC Fight Night 93 against Jessin Ayari.

UFC Fight Night 93 will be held on September 3, 2016, at Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany.[1]

Below is the statement from the UFC regarding this incident:

“As part of the athlete onboarding process, Emil Meek voluntarily disclosed medical treatment he received prior to signing with UFC that is potentially out of compliance with UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy. As a result, Meek will not compete in his previously scheduled bout on September 3, 2016 in Hamburg, Germany in order to allow him time to consult with his physician and evaluate his medical treatment.

“Given Meek’s medical treatment occurred before his signing with UFC, he is not subject to any potential anti-doping violations under the policy relating to that treatment. However, UFC is requiring Meek to be enrolled in USADA’s registered testing pool for a period of four months before he is placed on a fight card in the future.”

There is no news as of right now if Jessin Ayari will be removed from the card or if the UFC will look to rebook this fight in the future.

Emil Weber Meek hit the headlines earlier this year when he earned a 45 second KO win over Rousimar Palhares at Venator FC 3.
