Three UFC fighters have failed drug tests and have been sanctioned in the state of Texas. But not with USADA.

Niko Price, Curtis Blaydes and Abel Trujillo all tested positive for marijuana in in-competition drug tests in relation to UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, sources told MMA Fighting on Friday. All three have been suspended 90 days and fined $1,000 by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), sources said.

Despite their test failures for marijuana, none are facing any sanctions from USADA, per USADA spokesperson Ryan Madden. USADA only suspends fighters for cannabis if their drug test comes back with more than 150 ng/ml of the substance’s metabolites, a rule derived from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code.

Texas does not really have a true threshold for cannabis, sources said. It was immediately unclear how much cannabis the tests showed were in the three fighters’ systems. MMA Fighting has made an open records request with the TDLR for that information.

Texas Combative Sports director Greg Alvarez declined comment.


Atta' boy, Texas!

Anyone who is willing to arrest Willie Nelson over weed most certainly gives an ample amount of fucks regarding weed.

Really?! How weird, I'm in AZ and I've been to all the states in the SW, never spent a lot of time in Texas....though our big as Mexican populations kind of made the states down here pretty lax on weed. I know in the books are some strong rules but that doesn't mean they're enforced. In AZ it's a felony, but what makes the news is cops in trouble for making teens eat their buds when they get caught. Oh well, Texas....Fuck'em...wacky bastards!

I think the people hailing Texas aren't understanding what's happened here.

If this had happened in almost any other state nothing would have happened at all. They tested below the threshold that the USADA even considers a positive test. Which is why none are facing their punishments

Texas' athletic commission is the only body punishing them and they are fining these guys for trace amounts in their system. So little that it could be second hand use.

If anything it shows that Texas is treating weed more harshly than most other states in the country.

That was in Louisiana. It was exclusively weed in Texas.
