“I want to break the news to you that I will not be competing at UFC 303 due to the use of a banned substance. I did not do this intentionally and I am doing everything in my power to resolve this situation. I was using a custom supplement service and accidentally received a mixed supplement containing the banned substance DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone – note) and prohibited by the UFC anti-doping policy.

Upon receipt of this information, I immediately contacted Jeff Nowitzki, Senior Vice President of Doping Control, and Donna Marcolini, UFC Vice President of Doping Control, to inform them. My sincere apologies to all of you and Jamaal Hill for this unfortunate series of events. “This is a huge loss and an even bigger lesson,” Rowntree wrote on social media.
