According to a recent report by MMA Fighting, three fighters have failed an in-competition drug test at UFC Fight Night 104 this past February after testing positive for marijuana. Niko Price, Curtis Blaydes and Abel Trujillo are the culprits, and all three have been suspended 90 days and fined $1,000 by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).
As a result of the failed drug test, Price and Blaydes will have their wins overturned to no contests. Price originally defeated Alex Morono via second-round knockout, while Blaydes battered Adam Milstead’s knee to the tune of a second-round TKO. Trujillo lost to James Vick via third-round submission.
Per United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) spokesman Ryan Madden, none of the fighters will face any sanctions considering their tests came back with less than 150 ng/ml of marijuana metabolites. The amount of cannabis shown in the tests are unknown at this time, but MMA Fighting has reached out to TDLR for that information.
