Carlos Diego Ferreira informed of potential Anti-Doping Policy violation

Carlos Diego Ferreira has been notified by USADA of a potential Anti-Doping violation due to an out-competition drug test and Ferreira has been removed from his upcoming bout against Abel Trujillo due to this potential violation by the UFC.

The potential Anti-Doping violation was announced by the UFC in a statement today.

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Carlos Diego Ferreira of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation, stemming from a recent out-of-competition sample collection,” the UFC statement said. “In accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, Ferreira has received a provisional suspension, and has been removed from his scheduled bout against Abel Trujillo on May 29 in Las Vegas.”

Ferreira (12-2) has been in the UFC since 2014 and has gone 3-2 in the promotion. His most recent fight came in January at UFC on FOX 18 as he scored a decision victory against Ultimate Fighter Nations welterweight tournament finalist Olivier Aubin-Mercier.
