Notorious Askar Mozharov’s reputation plummeted after allegations of record-falsification emerged earlier this year ahead of his one and only UFC fight.
Now, just days after his fight against Alonzo Menifield, his record has changed dramatically, and after losing the fight and being eliminated by the UFC, Mozarov has yet to face yet another scandal. This time, it was a failed drug test under the NSAC, with the Ukrainian testing positive for GW1516 sulfone — a hormone and metabolic regulator banned by the NSAC, whose levels tested positive for Mozharov.
Interestingly, those same levels were below the US Anti-Doping Agency’s threshold for the substance, so Mozarov was just in the NSAC’s hot water. The drug test stemmed from his June 4, 2022 fight against Menifield at UFC Vegas 56, where Mozarov had his elbow on hold during a round.
According to the report mixed martial arts fanMozarov and his team have been in touch with the committee and a decision may be made at the committee’s next meeting on September 20.
Mozarov reportedly retired from MMA after being eliminated from the UFC, at least according to the posts on his Instagram profile. He currently holds a 17-13 record after joining the UFC with a 25-7 record, following numerous violations of his career record.
