Gastelum suspended by USADA

 

Former UFC middleweight title contender Kelvin Gastelum has accepted a nine-month suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency following a positive drug test stemming from his last fight at UFC 244 in New York on Nov. 3, 2019.

His suspension was later reduced by five months after he completed a drug treatment program.

According to USADA officials, Gastelum tested positive for THC — the psychoactive element from marijuana — which serves as his second anti-doping policy violation after previously facing a suspension in 2017 after testing positive for the same drug
