Bagautinov suspended two years from Sambo for use of banned substance


UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson fights #4 ranked Ali Bagautinov at UFC 174 on June 14, live on PPV.

During a recent media scrum, UFC president Dana White was asked about a recent incident involving Bagautinov, who is a world Sambo champion. White declined to comment, but a report in the Russian language site is presumably the incident refered to. The report says that Bagautinov has been suspended for two years by the international governing body for Sambo, for use of the prohibited substance methylhexaneamine.

The suspension is retroactive, and ends 8 Nov. 2014.

It was learned that UFC flyweight champion Ali Bagautinov was disqualified by the International Sambo Federation for use of a prohibited substance.

According to the report, FIAS found the banned substance methylhexaneamine in in Bagautinov's body:
Report on Anti-Doping (Mr. Ali Bagautinov Shamil'evich )
In accordance with Art. 14.2.2 Doping provisions FIAS report that athlete Mr. Ali Bagautinov Shamil'evich violated Art. 2.1 Anti-Doping provisions FIAS (presence of a prohibited substance in methylhexaneamine Athlete's Sample ) . Commission Hearing doping cases FIAS applied the following sanctions against the athlete :
-2-year disqualification from 9 November 2012 to November 8, 2014.
-Cancellation of the athlete received during the FIFA World Sambo- 2012, which was held in Minsk (Belarus) , including
forfeiture of any medals , points and prizes .
-Part or all of the financial support that is associated with sports activities or other related activities , grants ever received athlete
FIAS will be deducted and its national federations in accordance with Art.

But I would also note that it will not affect the upcoming fight Ali Bagautinova (13-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) with the current UFC champion in the category of 125 pounds Demetrius Johnson (19-2-1 MMA, 7-1-1 UFC).

Methylhexanamine was developed in the 40s as a nasal decongestant, but was pulled from the market in 1983. When ephedrine was banned in the USA in 2005, methylhexanamine was reintroduced as a dietary supplement.

Following several deaths and hospitalizations, it was banned in a number of countries including the  USA, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Australia, the UK, and Brazil. It was also banned by a number of professional and amateur sports bodies, including the World Anti Doping Agency.

Im not saying the UFC should go and punish him now since it was a couple years ago, but if he failed a drug test for sambo recently and its a banned substance by all the ACs Im sure the UFC would suspend him from competition.      Not sure what table flipping has to do with it, unless it was roid rage

Well, I don't think it doesn't matter. But it shouldn't matter to the UFC. If he got a 5 year suspension in chess for flipping a table at the world championship, should the UFC honor that suspension too? It is a difference sport, with a different competitive landscape, with much more lengthy suspensions it seems.

"I could study all night, if I was chowing down speed."I honestly think on a base level energy supplements are bad for you. Even if there are no long term side effects, seems like your body will get used to running on them and without it you might not be able to function up to par. All things in moderation though.Anyway, comparing this to Cyborg is pretty idiotic. On top of that, it was a suspension for Sambo, not MMA. And much more lengthy.

Beta Analine is actually the ingredient that makes you tingle. It's just an amino acid. As far as the 1-3 Dimeth, I have taken it in bulk along with other stim based PWO's for the last 5 years and have seen no adverse effects whatsoever.The only research around shows potential for adrenal fatigue long term but that is overblown.

Used to use Jack3d. Tasted terrible but did give an initial jolt. Within 15-20 minutes you would start to feel a tingle all over. I remember at the time thinking, this can't be good in the long run.
