Jorge Gonzalez Given Two-Year Suspension By USADA

UFC fighter Jorge Gonzalez was given a two-year suspension by the US Anti-Doping Agency on Saturday following a positive test for substances listed under the “UFC Prohibited List.”

Urine samples collected on August 5th showed stanozolol metabolites, drostanolone and tamoxifen, which are all prohibited for UFC fighters. Gonzalez will be able to compete again in 2022.

While currently under the UFC banner, Gonzalez has yet to compete for the promotion. He was signed to a UFC bout in July against Kenneth Bergh, although that fight was lost after Bergh failed his weight cut.

A bout against Ike Villanueva on August 22nd was cancelled after Gonzalez was pulled from the bout.

A 20-fight pro, Gonzalez has competed since 2010. His last bout was in July, where he stopped Marcos Rodriguez via rear naked choke on a regional card.
