The UFC just issued a short message, indicating that Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has potentially failed a drug test.

The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on December 5, 2016.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.

Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

Justino, who is under contract with the UFC, has fought the last two times under their banner.

In 2012 it was announced that Justino had tested positive for stanozolol, an anabolic steroid. Her win over Hiroko Yamanaka was changed to a No Contest, her license was suspended for one year, and she was fined $2,500.

Justino was offered a fight for the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight title, but declined citing the need to recover from the last weight cut. Now Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie, will fight for it at UFC 208 on Feb. 11 in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
