Invicta FC Issues Statement On Andrea Lee Failed Drug Test
Here’s what it said:
On Thursday, March 31, Invicta Fighting Championships was notified by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) that flyweight fighter Andrea Lee tested positive for the presence of prohibited diuretics in her pre-fight drug test at Invicta FC 16.
As a result of the positive test, Lee’s license has been temporarily suspended by NAC with a disciplinary hearing forthcoming. Invicta FC will fully cooperate with the NAC on the matter and supports Lee’s right to due process.
Invicta FC consistently informs its athletes about established policies and expectations in regard to conduct, including the strictly prohibited use of performance enhancing drugs, stimulants and masking agents. This positive test represents a violation of those policies.
Andrea Lee has an overall MMA record of 4-2. Since she lost her Invicta FC fight against Sarah D’Alelio, the result of that fight will not be changed. Lee will have to attend a hearing with the NSAC at a later date to be officially handed her punishment for the failed drug test.
