Lawlor has been provisionally suspended by USADA. It is his first violation, which typically carry a suspension of two years unless Lawlor successfully contests the violation. The statement read:

“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC anti-doping policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC anti-doping policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
