Louis Gaudinot releases statement following positive test for diuretic

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

UFC flyweight Louis Gaudinot released a statement denying any wrongdoing following a positive drug test for a diuretic.

It appears that Louis Gaudinot feels like he didn't do anything wrong in the wake of a positive test for a banned diuretic. The UFC flyweight had a win over Phil Harris flipped to a No Contest after a test came back with the unfortunate results and he was suspended for six months. He released a statement to MMA Junkie a little while ago:

"I have great respect for the UFC, the sport of MMA, and my opponent," Gaudinot stated. "I would never do anything to disrespect any of them. I would also never do anything to tarnish my name, my teammates, and family. While I deny any wrongdoing, I will respect the decision of the UFC and look forward to getting back in the cage in pursuit of the UFC flyweight championship. I thank my family, teammates and fans for their support."

The statement from Gaudinot's team said the fighter "did not change his regime from his previous UFC fights, where urine tests were negative."

Gaudinot is reportedly eligible to return from suspension in September. Harris had initially been released from the promotion following the loss but appears to have been given a reprieve.
