Kevin Lee was suspended by the NAC after a failed drug test

UFC athlete Kevin Lee has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada Sports Committee following a failed drug test linked to his defeat by Daniel Rodriguez on August 28.

On Wednesday, the NAC announced that Lee had been suspended after being found to be positive for amphetamine. Following the NAC announcement, Lee issued a statement on social media explaining that he had adult ADHD and was trying to manage it with medication.

“I have tried beyond the limit allowed by the Nevada State Sports Committee in my most recent race. In 2018 I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD, it always affected me. I did not discover a real cure for the diagnosis until 2020, when I recover from surgery on my double knee. I was given Adderall by a doctor to improve my mental health. I told USADA representatives, but I did not apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption from the NSAC before my last race. “For this, I really apologize to the UFC, the committee, my opponent, Dana White, the consuls, Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard and the fans,” Lee wrote on Instagram.

“It was never my intention to gain a sporting advantage. As an attempt to conquer the intense stress I suffer silently every day. I am actively working with the Nevada Sports Committee and look forward to reaching an agreement on sanctions. I will use this time to heal and come back stronger. Sorry for the lack of professionalism that led to this frustration, I will be back. “

Lee (18-7) is heading for multiple UFC fight cards. The 29-year-old has lost five of his last seven seasons.
