It took Marc-Andre Barriault four tries to pick up his first UFC victory, but he finally secured it June 20 – or so he thought. Wednesday, Barriault’s first promotional victory, earned against Oskar Piechota at UFC on ESPN 11, was overturned to a no contest by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) at its monthly meeting. The NAC overturned the result due to a positive U.S. Anti-Doping Agency drug test in which Barriault tested positive for ostarine, a “selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that is not approved for human use or consumption in the U.S., or in any other country,” according to USADA . Barriault was suspended nine months, fined $2,100, and has to pay prosecution fees of $254.38, a commission official informed MMA Junkie.
