MMA fighter Damien Lapilus’ career résumé just took a massive hit after four of his victories were overturned.
The French MMA Federation ruled that four of Lapilus’ recent bouts, including a title win over Amin Ayoub, have been overturned due to violations of the commission’s anti-doping policies.
The exact nature of Laplilus’ alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs is uncertain at this time.
After the federation overturned four of his victories, Lapilus now has a record of 17-18-2. Tapology’s Steven Kelliher was among the first to report the news of Lapilus’ violations.

Lapilus trains at MMA Factory in Paris under the tutelage of Fernand Lopez and former UFC interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane. He won the vacant Ares FC featherweight title in March with a win over Marco Beltran.
Lapilus is slated to return against Yazid Chouchane at Ares FC 16 on June 23rd. It’s uncertain as of this writing if the fight will remain scheduled.
Lapilus made his MMA debut on Nov. 11 at the Belgium Regional Championships, earning a win over Nelson Carvalho.
