  Holly Holm To Endorse Products Prohibited By UFC

Holly Holm, the American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight division, has signed a new endorsement deal with a supplement company that makes a number of products that contain a stimulant included on the prohibited substances list of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Holm recently agreed to a two-year deal and she will be seen pictured next to five bottled products of the company in a new advertisement. Three of these products are advertised as containing DMAA.

The UFC women’s bantamweight and former world boxing champion would be seen endorsing DMAA (chemical name Dimethylamylamine) that is a performance enhancing drug banned by WADA as it aids in fat loss and promotes muscle growth. Dimethylamylamine is banned by the UFC, the World Anti-Doping Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.

This is the second time that Holm has associated herself with a company making banned supplements. Holm has been tested seven times since the inception of anti-doping program of the UFC in July and all of her results have been negative.

In a statement, the UFC said Holly Holm is a great UFC champion and a role model for the sport of mixed martial arts. It was further added that the UFC organization has not researched the company that is sponsoring Holm, and UFC does not condone any athlete that uses a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Holm will defend her bantamweight title that she swiped from Ronda Rousey last November against Miesha Tate on March 5.  Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) looks for her first title defense when she meets Miesha Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in UFC 197’s pay-per-view co-headliner on March 5 in Las Vegas. This was after Rousey requested and received additional time off after an immediate rematch at the UFC’s blockbuster UFC 200 show on July 2 was tentatively scheduled. The second fight between Holm and Rousey is expected to challenge UFC pay-per-view and live gate records.

Meanwhile, UFC women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate has remarked she is not in favor of a second go-around between champ Holly Holm and Ronda Rouse. Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) argues she is a better candidate for the title and added she is not a fan of the rematch in that amount of time, because with everything else that Ronda has going on, plus her injuries, she just do not think it is going to amount to a good outcome.

UFC president Dana White said UFC fans will see Ronda Rousey fight again. White added Ronda has dedicated the last three-plus years to working hard here. Not just fighting, but promoting and taking the sport and the UFC to a whole other level and Ronda has some well-deserved time off, but she will fight this year.

Holm’s longtime manager, Lenny Fresquez, recently confirmed Holm has inked a multiyear contract extension to remain with the UFC. Fresquez said we have officially signed a multiyear extension with the UFC and went on to add that we’ve signed an extension, and we’re very happy with the extension.

  US Taekwondo Athlete Receives Sanction

Us taekwondo athlete receives sanction

Nathaniel Tadd of Houston, Texas, an athlete in the sport of Taekwondo, has tested positive for a prohibited substance, according to a statement issued by the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA).

The 20-year-old received a suspension for his doping offense after testing positive for methylhexaneamine, a stimulant. The positive test pertains to a urine sample collected at the Senior Nationals competition, on July 3, 2011, in San Jose, California. Stimulants are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic Movement Testing and the rules of the World Taekwondo Federation, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

A two-year period of ineligibility was received by Tadd that began on November 16, 2011, the day he received his sanction. The Taekwondo athlete is also disqualified from all results obtained during the Senior Nationals, which began on June 28, 2011, as well as any other competitive results obtained subsequent to June 28, 2011, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes.

An advisory was issued by the USADA on June 16, 2011 for making athletes aware of the concerns regarding methylhexaneamine.

Methylhexaneamine is a stimulant and was first placed on the WADA Prohibited List in 2010 classed as a Non Specified Stimulant. It has been re-classified as a Specified Stimulant from 2011 and is prohibited in-competition only. Products that contain any of the following ingredients on the label (Methylhexaneamine; Methylhexanamine; DMAA (dimethylamylamine); Geranamine; Forthane; Forthan; Floradrene; 2-hexanamine, 4-methyl-; 2-hexanamine, 4-methyl- (9CI); 4-methyl-2-hexanamine; 1,3-dimethylamylamine; 4-Methylhexan-2-amine; 1,3-dimethylpentylamine; 2-amino-4-methylhexane; Pentylamine, 1, 3-dimethyl) are reported as an Adverse Analytical Finding for Methylhexaneamine. Methylhexaneamine (MHA) was retained in the Prohibited List for 2012 by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). In 2010, Methylhexaneamine topped the stimulants list for 123 adverse analytical findings worldwide in all sports that accounted for 21.4 per cent of cases in that particular drug class. Many products sold as dietary supplements openly list this substance on their labels like Jack3d (USP Labs), Lipo-6-Black and Hemo-Rage Black (Nutrex), Spriodex (Gaspari Nutrition), F-10 (Advanced Genetics), Clear Shot (E-Pharm), 1.M.R. (BPI Sports), and many others.

The drug figured prominently during the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi wherein swimmers Richa Mishra, Amar Muralidharan and Jyotsna Pansare, wrestlers Rajeev Tomar, Rahul Mann, Sumeet, Joginder, Mausam Khatri and Gursharanpreet Kaur, and athletes Saurabh Vij and Akash Antil tested positive to it just before the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Methylhexaneamine or DMAA s marketed under many names as a dietary supplement but its safety has been questioned. It was originally developed to be used as a nasal decongestant and treatment for hypertrophied or hyperplasic oral tissue. It was reintroduced in 2006 as a dietary supplement under the trademarked name Geranamine. On 19 June 2012, the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) made an announcement that the 2012 Comrades Marathon winner, Ludwick Mamabolo, tested positive for the banned stimulant. The New Zealand government indicated in November 2009 that methylhexaneamine would be scheduled as a restricted substance and made illegal the sale of DMAA products after 7 April 2012.

Boxer Sean McGoldrick may earn belated gold Sean McGoldrick of Newport could be in the line for a belated upgrade to a Commonwealth Games gold medal after Manju Wanniarachchi, the bantamweight champion, failed a drug test.

McGoldrick faced a narrow countback defeat to Wanniarachchi in the final in Delhi but is all set to earn a belated medal as the Sri Lankan now faces being stripped of his medal.

Osayemi Oludamola and her compatriot Sade Abugan lost the 100m gold medal and two silver medals, respectively, after they tested positive for DMAA.
