Ovince Saint Preux has been suspended from participating in fights for a duration of six months.
Ovince Saint Preux’s suspension came because of a pair of drug tests conducted by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which revealed the presence of prohibited substances. Saint Preux encountered a similar issue in 2019 when he had a positive test result linked to a contaminated supplement.
Saint Preux received some leniency in this situation because the analysis of the samples showed that the supplements he had consumed contained prohibited substances that were not disclosed on the supplement labels.
Ovince Saint Preux is presently on a two-fight losing streak. His most recent bout was against Philipe Lins at the UFC Fight Night 219 event, where he suffered a KO defeat.
According to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Saint Preux’s six-month period of ineligibility began on June 17, and he will be eligible to return to competition on December 17.
