MMA fighter Chi Lewis-Parry has been handed a four-year suspension by the US Anti-Doping Agency after numerous violations in their policy as well as “falsified evidence.”
USADA announced the suspension on Friday. His suspension will expire in September of 2023.
While Lewis-Parry had not fought in the UFC, he was in the promotion’s testing pool in September of 2019 when he was flagged for drostanolone, stanozolol and dehydrochloromethyltestosterone.
Per USADA’s statement, Lewis-Parry presented false evidence to prove “that the prohibited substances had originated from a contaminated supplement.”
Lewis-Parry was set to be handed a two-year suspension due to his violation, but the sentence was doubled when an arbitrator took into account the falsified evidence he put forth.
Lewis-Parry last competed on a UAE Warriors card, defeating former UFC fighter Fabio Maldonado in the second minute with strikes. Lewis-Parry is undefeated as a pro through 11 fights.
