Welterweight George Sullivan has been pulled from his bout against Hector Urbina at UFC on Fox 20 due to a potential “compliance issue” with the UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy.
The UFC released a statement announcing Sullivan’s removal on Thursday:
UFC competitor George Sullivan voluntarily disclosed information to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) that could pose a potential compliance issue with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy. Out of an abundance of caution, Sullivan has been removed from his scheduled bout on Saturday night against Hector Urbina while USADA conducts an investigation into the matter. Urbina will still weigh in as a potential backup opponent should there be a need for him to compete in another bout on Saturday. Otherwise, he will be re-booked for another card in the near future.
Urbina will still weigh in incase there is a potential fighter who is willing to take the bout on short notice.
If no opponent can be found he will be re-booked for another card.Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Desmond Green & Matteo Urella.
