Michal Oleksiejczuk Suspended One Year, UFC 219 Win Overturned by Nevada Commission
Michal Oleksiejczuk has been suspended for one year after testing positive for a banned substance surrounding his last fight at UFC 219 in Las Vegas.
On Tuesday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission put Oleksiejczuk on the shelf until at least Dec. 30, 2018 after he tested positive for clomiphene — an anti-estrogen drug that is banned at all times for athletes competing in combat sports.
Oleksiejczuk will have to submit a clean drug test before competing in Nevada again.
Oleksiejczuk had made quite a UFC debut with his win over Rountree but now he’ll be sitting out until at least Dec. 30 after failing the drug test and that victory has been overturned to a no contest.
