If the dop­ing test is found again, Nur­magome­dov faces a 4‑year dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

Sec­ond cousin dop­ing test Khabib Nur­magome­do­vacham­pi­on Bel­la­tor light­weight Usman Nur­magome­do­va showed a pos­i­tive result. This was announced by the head of the Cal­i­for­nia Ath­let­ic Com­mis­sion Andy Fos­ter.

The test was tak­en after the fight Nur­magome­do­va with Brent Primus, which took place on Octo­ber 7 this year at the Bel­la­tor 300 tour­na­ment in San Diego. It was the semi-finalThe Grand Prix” in the light­weight divi­sion, 25-year-old Nur­magome­dov won by unan­i­mous deci­sion.

Now result of the fight at the Bel­la­tor 300 tour­na­ment between the Russ­ian fight­er and the Amer­i­can Brent Primus can­celed.

It’s not doping»

Despite this, Usman will not be stripped of his cham­pi­onship belt. Bel­la­tor rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mike Kogan explained this deci­sion on his social net­works briefly but clear­ly: “It’s not dop­ing

At the same time, accord­ing to the head of the Cal­i­for­nia Ath­let­ic Com­mis­sion, Usman was dis­qual­i­fied for six months and fined $50,000.

Nur­magome­dov also agreed to par­tic­i­pate in the Asso­ci­a­tion’s vol­un­tary dop­ing test­ing pro­gram over the next year at his own expense (VADA). He must pass at least 3 full drug tests.

If a dop­ing sam­ple is found again Nur­magome­dov faces dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion for 4 of the year.

As Fos­ter said, Nur­magome­do­va had a med­ical pre­scrip­tion for the use of the drug that caused the dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion, but he did not apply for it TUE.

TUE is a term used by anti-dop­ing orga­ni­za­tions to refer to drugs that are on the pro­hib­it­ed list but are pre­scribed to an ath­lete to treat a dis­ease or con­di­tion.

The name of the pro­hib­it­ed drug that was found in the body of the Russ­ian fight­er has not been dis­closed. The ath­lete is now sus­pend­ed.

In the Grand Prix final (the prize for win­ning is a mil­lion dol­lars), Nur­magome­dov will be replaced by the Amer­i­can Primus, who he defeat­ed. His oppo­nent will be either Russ­ian Alexan­der Shabliy or Brazil­ian Patricky Freire — the fight between them will take place on the night of Novem­ber 18 at the Bel­la­tor 301 tour­na­ment.

Nei­ther Nur­magome­dov him­self nor his rep­re­sen­ta­tives have yet com­ment­ed on the sit­u­a­tion.
