UFC lightweight Diego Ferreira today was suspended 12 months for a failed pre-fight test in connection with a scheduled bout at UFC Fight Night 88. Ferreira (12-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) was set to face Abel Trujillo (14-6 MMA, 5-2 UFC) at the May 29 event, but came back positive for Ostarine, a selective androgen receptor modulator with steroid-like properties, after being tested out-of-competition by UFC anti-doping partner USADA. Trujillo went on to face newcomer Jordan Rinaldo and won via decision at the event, which took place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Ferreira’s case with the third-party firm is still pending, but the NSAC moved forward with the fighter after temporarily suspending him and delaying a hearing on the matter . During a hearing today in Las Vegas, Ferreira appeared without representation and struggled to keep up with the commission’s questions about his positive test and his responsibilities under the UFC’s anti-doping program
