Former three-time UFC featherweight title contender Chad Mendes issued his first public statement regarding his failed drug test recently.
Mendes was flagged by the USADA and admits in the statement that he “didn’t do my homework and that was a big mistake.”
I didn't do my homework and that was a big mistake. I own it and I'm going to pay for it.
