‘An adverse drug test from Rob Font back in May will not change’
Brett Okamoto of ESPN tweeted the same. He wote: Bit of housekeeping out of Vegas, Nevada Commission ruled (correctly) an adverse drug test from Rob Font back in May will not change the result of his win over Cody Garbrandt and was not consistent with any doping. Evidence was overwhelming the anomaly came from a legal product.“
Upon investigating further, the presence of chlorphenesin, a cosmetic preservative predominantly found in shampoos and bathing lotions was confirmed. The substance can metabolize into 4-CPA. Once these were proved, Font was let go, and the much-needed win against Garbrandt was his.
Font is coming off a win over Garbrandt and is currently on a four-fight winning streak. The Leominster based man from America is ranked number 4 in the UFC bantamweight rankings, and it will only be a couple of wins from here, that would take him to a title fight.
