Cung Le Tested Positive for HGH Banned
Cung Le tested positive for banned substance HGH. Cung Le said that the Instagram photo of him showing a more muscular physique was just a result of luck. The timing was just right and the lighting was good which is why he appears to be more muscular. However, based on a test result it appears that muscle growth was not luck but with the help of Human Growth Hormone. UFC made a statement on their website last Tuesday September 30 that Le tested positive for HGH after the August 23 loss to Michael Bisping that was held in Macau, china. Le was knocked out in the 4th round.
Michael Bisping saw the Instagram photo and requested UFC to test both blood and urine for that fight. UFC said that Cung Le will be suspended for 9 months, and he will need to pass a drug test before he can fight again in the UFC.
