Meltzer reports the latest PPV buy rate estimates at 95,000-115,000 – a disastrously low figure that is likely the worst in the modern era of the UFC.
Ali Bagautinov tests positive for erythropoietin (EPO) and is suspended for one year. Again, it was a random drug test (prior to his UFC 174 title shot against Demetrious Johnson) that picked it up.
Disappointing – especially given that this test concerned a title shot.
On the other hand, the NSAC are doing a great job with random testing. Step up the standard suspension to 18 months, and we might see PED use drop through the floor.
