Frank Mir final suspensing

USADA announced today that UFC® athlete, Francisco (Frank) Mir, of Las Vegas, Nev., received a two-year sanction after multiple positive tests for a prohibited substance.

Mir, 38, tested positive for a long-term metabolite of dehydrochloromethyltestosterone (DHCMT), following an in-competition test conducted on March 20, 2016, at UFC Fight Night 85 in Brisbane, Australia. DHCMT 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 (WADA) Prohibited List. The finding of a long-term DHCMT metabolite in Mir’s sample, which was identified through a new detection method by the WADA-accredited laboratory in Tokyo, Japan, led to Mir being provisionally suspended from competition on April 8, 2016.

Upon learning of the positive results of the sample analyzed in Tokyo, USADA had all previously collected stored samples for Mir reanalyzed at the WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah (SMRTL), which had also recently implemented methodology for the detection of newly identified long-term DHCMT metabolites. As a result of the additional analyses, SMRTL discovered that an out-of-competition sample Mir provided on February 5, 2016, which had previously been reported to USADA as negative for the presence of prohibited substances, was also positive for the same long-term DHCMT metabolite found in Mir’s in-competition sample.

As investment and commitment to anti-doping research increases, significant advancements in laboratory testing methods have allowed for improved sensitivity and longer detection windows. By continually utilizing the most advanced testing methods as part of a comprehensive retesting program, USADA aims to maximize both the deterrence and detection of doping so athletes who seek an unfair advantage are held accountable now and in the future.

Mir’s two-year period of ineligibility began on April 8, 2016, the date on which he was provisionally suspended from competition.

Pursuant to the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, all UFC athletes serving a period of ineligibility for an anti-doping policy violation are required to remain in the USADA registered testing pool and make themselves available for testing in order to receive credit for time served under his or her sanction. Furthermore, if an athlete retires during his or her period of ineligibility, the athlete’s sanction will be tolled until such time the athlete notifies USADA of his or her return from retirement and once again makes him or herself available for no-advance-notice, out-of-competition testing.

Did I just catch a "suspensing" back there?

The suspencing is killing him.

Interesting, so he actually failed two tests.

this is what's coming folks.


ABCTT_HeHitsMeBecauseHeLovesMe - Interesting, so he actually failed two tests.

with that new test. that's why it did not seem logical in the first place.


Let's just be honest here, Mir is obviously a guy that has likely used peds, extensively.

I remember when Mir gained like 30lbs of muscles before his second fight with Lesnar...

I think he was using something he thought he could. Turned out he couldn't.

The suspense is terrible. I hope it'll last. 

Frank Mur, IMO.

Two positive tests 23 days apart?

AnthonyWeiner - Two positive tests 23 days apart?

the first test was negative, the second positive in another lab with a new testing methode.

So, Mir stated there must be something wrong in the lab, it cannot be i test positive for residu/metabolites, when 23 days before nothing is showing up. should have been full blast for that substance.

Okay USDA said, we retest your previous sample with the new test and it came back positive, ding, ding. we have a winner!

His bjj coach is Robert Drysdale. The guy that failed two tests for one fight.

And between Lesnar and Kongo he put on 25 pounds. He weighed 243 for Lesnar cause his plan was to drag the fight into deep water and hope Brock gassed. He cut  to make 265 against Kongo..the fights were 3 months apart.
