Updated Zuffa Statement on Cung Le

Zuffa, LLC, owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, released an updated statement regarding the suspension of UFC middleweight Cung Le:

After review by UFC Senior Management, an error was discovered regarding the length of Cung Le’s suspension due to a failed drug test. While originally stated as nine months, the correct suspension period to be enforced is 12 months.

Le tested positive for an excess level of Human Growth Hormone in his system following his fight at UFC Fight Night in Macao, China on August 23. He will still be required to pass a drug screening before being allowed to compete in the UFC following the completion of his suspension.
