Jim Wallhead failed a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) drug test and has been notified of a potential UFC anti-doping policy violation.
Officials announced the news on Wednesday.
Wallhead’s failed test was the result of an out-of-competition sample collected on Oct. 7.
“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Wallhead. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
Wallhead (29-11 MMA, 0-2 UFC) recently pulled out of a UFC Fight Night 118 booking against welterweight Warlley Alves and was ultimately replaced by Salim Touahri at the Oct. 21 event.
“Judo Jimmy,” a 33-year-old BAMMA, Cage Warriors and Bellator vet, entered the UFC in 2016 with a four-fight winning streak. However, he’s fallen short in two UFC bouts with a split-decision defeat to Jessin Ayari and a submission loss to Luan Chagas.
