Lyman Good flagged by USADA, out of UFC 205 fight with Belal Muhammad

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The only UFC 205 athlete born in Manhattan is now off the card.

Lyman Good was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation by USADA, the UFC announced in a release Monday. The potential violation, likely a positive drug test for a banned substance, stems from an out-of-competition sample taken Oct. 14.

Good has been provisionally suspended by USADA, pending an adjudication process. He was supposed to face Belal Muhammad at UFC 205 on Nov. 12 in New York, but has been pulled off the card.

Good (19-3, 1 NC), a native of Harlem, is unbeaten in his last six fights. The former Bellator and CFFC champion knocked out Andrew Craig in his last fight back in July 2015. Good, 31, has only lost to current Bellator champ Andrey Koreshkov, former Bellator champ Ben Askren and Rick Hawn in his career.

The UFC is seeking a new opponent in the welterweight bout for Muhammad.
