UFC having problems with alleged drug cheats

The UFC, which was recently sold for a sports-record $4 billion, has recently had its fair share of problems with alleged drug cheats. The mixed martial arts organization recently announced the third failed drug test in recent weeks when it suspended featherweight fighter Chad Mendes for two years. Both Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar also failed recent drug tests in the past few weeks. The 31-year-old Mendes of California said he didn’t knowingly use any banned substances, but said he won’t appeal his ban and is willing to accept the punishment handed down. The USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) released an official statement which said Mendes’ drug test came back positive as his urine sample showed signs of a growth hormone called GHRP-6 in his system.

UFC bought for sports franchise record $4 Billion

The popular mixed martial arts franchise the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) was sold for $4 billion in the second week of July. The company was bought by the WME-IMG talent agency along with Silver Lake Partners, MSD Capital, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and the Michael Dell investment firm. The UFC was bought by the Fertitta brothers, Frank and Lorenzo, for just $2 million in 2000 and was mainly operated by its president Dana White. The $4 billion price tag makes the sale the most expensive in sports history. ESPN had reported a couple of months ago that the UFC was up for sale, but White denied the reports.
