UFC flyweight Carlos Mota suspended by Nevada Commission


Carlos Mota has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission following a failed drug test that was submitted around his octagon debut this past October.

The suspension was initially issued by the commission on Dec. 15 and then extended on Tuesday pending a full disciplinary hearing or a potential adjudication agreement, which will be announced at a future meeting.

According to Nevada deputy attorney general Joel Bekker, Mota tested positive for meldonium, which is a substance banned at all times for athletes both in and out of competition.
