A middleweight bout between Arizona Combat Sports fighter Steve Steinbeiss and UFC veteran Ryan Jensen has been canceled for Wednesday night's UFC Fight Night 18, as confirmed by UFC.com

UFC officials said the fight was off "due to a medical approval issue regarding Jensen."

Independent sources have confirmed to MMAWeekly.com (http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/dailynews.asp?articleid=8483&zoneid=13) that the alleged medical issue stems from Jensen's use of Adderall, which is not allowed under standard athletic commission rules.

A similar situation to this happened at "The Ultimate Fighter 7" season finale when Tim Credeur admitted to using the same drug, Adderall, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission canceled his scheduled bout against Cale Yarbrough in much the same manner.


I had him as a favorite in this fight too. What a stupid thing to do, he knew it was illegal, huge missed opportunity here.

He is depressed. I'd rather he cancel his bout then kill himself.

Have a heart.

adderall though is a drug distributed to add/adhd persons typically. and i have personally taken a half of one and they should be considered performance enhancing as they speed you up like crazy.

They only act as speed to those withhout the add/adhd. In those with the illness the drug counteracts the overactivity of the brain. Those without the illness don't have the overactiveness so it does act like speed. I don't know if jensen is add/adhd or not but if he is and it is perscribed for his add/adhd I don't see a problem with the takingof it but if he does not have the illness he should get the same penalty as karo.

I don't agree with you. If he admitted before the fight to be taking the drug and didn't actually fight they ahve no grounds to punish him especially since he admitted it himself.

Which is unfair to his opponent but fights get cancelled all the time part of the life style. They will deal with it. Of course he didn't make friends with Dana by screwing up.

Adderall is for ADHD, not depression.

He knew the rules, and if he didn't, he cant claim ignorance because he should have recalled the Credeur incident and made a mental note.

I called him a moron, not a cheater or a bad person. He wasted his time/money/energy etc as well as his opponents and his manager/trainers/teammates and the UFC who promoted him, and more importantly MINE cause I went and researched him so I could win fake money at mmaplaygorund.
