Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is the latest UFC fighter to potentially fall by the sword of USADA.

Nogueira, a 17-year veteran commonly known by his nickname “Lil Nog,” has been pulled from his scheduled Dec. 16 fight against Jared Cannonier at UFC on FOX 26 after being flagged for a potential anti-doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test administered on Sept. 27.

With Nogueira out, promotion officials are currently seeking a replacement opponent to keep Cannonier on the card. The UFC announced the news Thursday.

I am chalking it up to a tainted supplement. The United States leads in supplement testing; but with that being said, it's still not a perfect science. Other countries lag behind, especially if you're not doing due diligence with what you put in your body. Assuming it was a supplement, Nog really does not have an excuse. Look over the banned/allowed list by USADA and STICK TO IT!! At this stage in the UFC/USADA era, it's tough to feel bad for the guy. I also doubt it was intentional as I do not see someone taking a diuretic this far out from competition.
