UFC welterweight Lyman Good has filed lawsuits against multiple supplement companies, claiming that a tainted product resulted in a positive drug test in 2016.
TMZ Sports was first to report the news. Good tested positive for the banned substance 1-androstenedione in an out-of-competition sample collected in October 2016. As a result, Good was pulled from a proposed matchup with Belal Muhammad at UFC 205.
In April, USADA announced that Good accepted a reduced six-month suspension due to his positive test likely occurring as a result of a tainted supplement. According to the lawsuit, Good purchased the multi-vitamin Anavite at a Vitamin Shoppe store prior to UFC 205. Good turned the supplement over to USADA, and it was found to contain androstenedione even though that substance was not listed on the label.
In the complaint, Good states that manufacturer Gaspari Nutrition added the banned substance to “increase sales in the competitive dietary supplements industry.” According to MMAFighting.com, Good is seeking damages for breach of express warranty (or sales contract), deceptive acts and practices, false advertising, and assault and battery from multiple supplement companies – including Gaspari and Vitamin Shoppe – in two separate lawsuits.
Good returned to the Octagon at UFC on Fox 25 on July 22, losing a split decision to Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos. The New York native is 19-4 with one no contest over the course of his professional career.
