BJ Penn Removed From UFC 199 Due To Possible USADA Violation

It was announced today that the return of BJ Penn was once again going to be delayed or for that matter... never happen as he may have violated USADA regs in regards to IV usage.

Here is the official statement from the UFC:

"The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed BJ Penn of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation. Penn disclosed the usage of a prohibited method - the use of an IV in excess of 50 ML in a six-hour period - during a March 25, 2016, out-of-competition sample collection. In accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, Penn has received a provisional suspension, and has been removed from his scheduled bout against Cole Miller on June 4 in Los Angeles. UFC will announce a replacement opponent for Miller shortly, and additional information will be provided by USADA and UFC at the appropriate time as the process involving Penn moves forward.”

What do you expect? The comedian is dead.
