If you thought that Nick Diaz’ suspension of five years back in 2015 for marijuana use was a long one…then wait until you hear about this one.


The UFC’s first Italian female fighter to win in the organization was flyweight contender Mara Romero Borella. However, the Italian has had quite the interesting past and it continues to be brought to light thanks to a recent suspension.


In 2014, Borella was suspended by the National Anti Doping Agency of Italy for 15 years due to trafficking of prohibited substances. This suspension has now been extended to 2044 making it a whopping 26-year suspension due to “contravention of article 4.12.3 of the Italian Anti Doping Code (NSA) which prohibits competing while suspended.” accompanied by “violation of article eight of the same code which prohibits the use of Italian sporting facilities while serving a suspension”. (via MMA Today)


The story is that of Borella and her then-boyfriend, Rugby player Filippo Maserati who was under police investigation centered around the Italian town of Piacenza. A two-year investigation that was known as “Operazione Flanker“ led to the arrest of the couple along with 33 others that were charged with distribution and sale of cannabis and cocaine in multiple areas around the location.


The investigation discovered that Borella and Maserati were distributing drugs around bars, nightclubs, and sporting venues such as rugby and soccer matches. Borella also was believed to have been selling drugs at her gym.


Whether or not Borella’s UFC career will be affected by this news remains to be seen.

Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb...they refuse, they cling to the realm or gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

She sounds like a boss. She'll probably be the central figure of Ozark season three.
