The athletic Commission of the state of Nevada decided to suspend for nine months the American Middleweight Deron Wynn, who represents the “American Kickboxing Academy” and is a teammate and sparring partner of the current UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The reason for Wynn’s disqualification was a failed doping test that showed the presence of amphetamine in his body. The American failed testing on March 7 after an early defeat in a fight against Gerald Mershart at UFC 248, so he will be able to return to the octagon on December 7. He will also pay a $ 1,800 fine and legal fees.
According to NSAC representatives, Deron Wynn pleaded guilty to violating the rules and for this reason received a minimum period of disqualification.
Before losing the previous match, the 31-year-old American fighter had two fights in the UFC, winning by unanimous decision against Eric Spicely, and losing by split decision to Darren Stewart.
