Manager gives update on former champ Fabricio Werdum

Recommended Posts

Fabricio Werdum

Last year, former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum tested positive for the anabolic steroid Trenbolone and was suspended two years by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

“Werdum, 41, tested positive for trenbolone and its metabolite epitrenbolone following an out-of-competition urine test conducted on April 25, 2018,” a USADA statement issued at the time explained. “Trenbolone is a non-Specified Substance in the class of Anabolic Agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, which has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

“Werdum’s two-year period of ineligibility, the standard sanction for a first offense involving a non-Specified Substance, began on May 22, 2018, the date his provisional suspension was imposed.”

While Fabricio Werdum is not eligible to compete until May of 2020, his manager Ali Abdelaziz claims he will soon re-enter the USADA testing pool. Next week, to be exact.

“Fabricio is going to come back and be a top-five heavyweight in the world,” Ali Abdelaziz told MMA Junkie recently (transcript via MMA News). “He’s training. He’s doing everything right.”

Abdelaziz also reaffirmed his belief that Werdum did not intentionally cheat, instead attributing the violation to “the system.”

“I believe he did not cheat at all, but the system got us,” he said. “But it’s okay. He has one more year, and he’ll be back in the cage.”

That excuse is worse than dik pills or foot lotion.

The system that is designed to catch cheating fighters caught my cheating fighter but he didn't cheat because he was caught by the system. Got it.

No car fire out there hot enough for Ali
