Lyman Good has filed lawsuits against multiple supplement companies over his positive drug test in 2016. MMA Fighting reports that Good filed two separate suits against the companies alleging breach of express warranty (or sales contract), deceptive acts and practices, false advertising, and assault and battery.

The first complaint is against Gaspari Nutrition, Richard Gaspari, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, Jared Wheat and Vitamin Shoppe. The second is against Millennium Sport Technologies and Matthew Masuda.

In the lawsuits, Good’s lawyer writes, “Defendants initiated and have continued this fraudulent scheme of adulteration and steroid distribution despite prior and ongoing lawsuits against them for similar conduct, as they appear to believe that this scheme is still profitable. For this reason, Plaintiff seeks injunctions and punitive damages to punish and deter the repeated, unlawful behavior of Defendants.”

Good tested positive for substance 1-androstenedione stemming from an out-of-competition sample taken in October 2016. He was suspended and pulled form his fight with Belal Muhammad from UFC 205. Good accepted a six-month suspension after USADA found that he had likely gotten the banned substance in his system from from contaminated supplements.
