Fabricio Werdum fails drug test for first time

Fabricio Werdum has been competing since 2002 and this is the first time he has been notified of potential drug use. Social media members were the first to report the issue.

Details are yet to be announced regarding the particular drug in question, but this is a major set back for UFC: Russia and the Werdum’s camp.

Fabricio Werdum’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz was quick to retort.

“The entire UFC staff and I are all working together to solve this problem,” Abdel-Aziz said.

“I’m very confident it will be OK. … It’s a misunderstanding. Something is off. Fabricio did not take anything illegal.”
