Cynthia Calvillo’s first career loss just got a little bit worse.
Three weeks after dropping to 6-1 as a pro with a unanimous decision loss to Carla Esparza at UFC 219, the promotion announced Wednesday that the 30-year-old Calvillo has been notified of a potential UFC anti-doping policy violation after failing a USADA drug test for Carboxy-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The positive test stems from an in-competition sample collected in relation to the Dec. 30 bout, which took place in Las Vegas, Nev.
Consider Daniel Cormier unimpressed by the news that Jon Jones recently passed a lie detector test.

Everyone laughed and ripped off jokes about Pierce’s Jan. 4 declaration that the Celtics shouldn’t briefly interrupt the night of his jersey retirement in Boston to honor Isaiah Thomas. But Pierce stuck to his guns. On Tuesday, we found out the Celtics will not show an Isaiah tribute video, instead focusing all attention on The Truth.
Anthony Davis is terrifying. Everyone knows, but it’s worth remembering the genesis of that knowledge because at some point in our oversaturated consciousness we started to take AD for granted.
Gregg Popovich is standing in the Barclays Center corridor interlocking the home and visiting locker rooms. Popovich is playful and lighthearted, tossing joke after joke at the swarm of media members enveloping him.
He does not have the demeanor of a head coach whose best player is out indefinitely.
