The United States Anti-Doping Agency has announced UFC welterweight Lyman Good has accepted a sanction of six months after testing positive for a prohibited substance.
Good (19-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was pulled from a planned appearance at UFC 205 after he tested positive for 1-androstenedione (an endogenous weak androgen and estrogen and intermediate to/prohormone of testosterone), and its metabolite 1-(5a)-androsten-3a-ol-17-one, which is registered as a non-specified substance in the class of anabolic agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.
USADA officials revealed a contaminated supplement was to blame for the positive test of Lyman Good. It was stated that Good, following notification of his positive test, provided the United States Anti-Doping Agency with information about a dietary supplement product he was using at the time of the relevant sample collection. USADA also added that testing conducted on an independently sourced, unopened container of the product by the WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah, indicated that it contained 1-androstenedione although no prohibited substances were listed on the supplement label.
The presence of an undisclosed prohibited substance in a product is regarded as contamination. USADA said the product accordingly has since been added to the High Risk List of supplements maintained on USADA’s online dietary supplement safety education and awareness resource – Supplement 411 (www.Supplement411.org).
The sanction on Lyman Good dates back to October 24, when he was provisionally suspended and pulled from a planned contest with Belal Muhammad.
A 31-year-old New Yorker, Good was an early Bellator champion who made his UFC debut in 2015. Good met Andrew Craig in his promotional debut and scored a second-round knockout victory. Lyman is on a five-fight winning streak and is 8-1 (with one no-contest) in his past 10 fights. The former Bellator MMA welterweight champion is eligible to return later this month. Good was the first-ever Bellator welterweight champion back in 2009.
Good is best known for his stint with Bellator MMA, the American mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion company. Good defeated Jorge Ortiz in the tournament's semi-finals at Bellator VII and faced Omar De La Cruz in the finals at Bellator XI. Early in the first round, Lyman scored a takedown early in the first round and pounded his way to a TKO victory. In his first title defense, Lyman lost via Unanimous Decision to rising star Ben Askren.
The Puerto Rican American mixed martial artist is considered one of the top welterweight and middleweight fighters in the Northeast. He is also a Sensei/instructor for Tiger Schulmann mixed martial arts in Manhattan. He participated in three kickboxing matches in Chuck Norris's World Combat League and won all three bouts. Good made his promotional debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship as a short notice replacement against Andrew Craig on July 15, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 71, filling in for an injured Edgar Garcia. Good won the fight by TKO in the second round. He was later slated to meet Omari Akhmedov on December 10, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 80 but Lyman was pulled from the bout and was replaced by Sérgio Moraes.
