A few days following the drug test results coming to light, Ortega issued an apology via his Instagram account.

“In preparation for my UFC debut, I used a banned substance called Drostanolone. It was an irresponsible decision that I will regret for the rest of my life. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, the UFC, and everyone else who was affected by my selfish actions,” he said.

“It should be known that my coaches were totally unaware of my decisions, and I am ashamed that I let down the people who believed in me more than I believed in myself.

“Going forward, I’d rather lose a fair fight to any opponent, than defeat myself the way I have done.”
