Feijao tests positive for banned substance.

Quote:
Jun 15, 2012 - Strikeforce light heavyweight Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante tested positive for a banned substance following his win over Mike Kyle last month in San Jose, Calif. The California State Athletic Commission executive officer George Dodd confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Friday. Boxing reporter Gabriel Montoya first reported the news on Twitter.

As a result, Cavalcante has been suspended for one year and fined $2,500 by the CSAC.

Dodd refused to disclose which banned substance Cavalcante tested positive for because he was not at his office when contacted by MMAFighting.com. He said the CSAC sent Cavalcante a letter earlier this week informing him of the failed test but they have yet to hear back from him.

Ed Soares, Cavalcante's manager, told MMAFighting.com that they have replied to the CSAC's letter and will be appealing the suspension.

"I believe in his innocence, and we're fighting it," Soares said. "We stand behind him. There's a lot of stuff that doesn't make sense."

Strikeforce officials were not immediately available for comment when contacted by MMAFighting.com.

Cavalcante submitted Kyle at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Thomson III in just 33 seconds last month. He was rumored to be in line for a title shot against Gegard Mousasi later this year.

This marks the third high-profile Strikeforce fighter to be accused of testing positive for a banned substance this year after Cris "Cyborg" Santos and Muhammed Lawal were both suspended by the CSAC and Nevada State Athletic Commission, respectively.

This has been a bad year for MMA, and this just puts another blemish on its record. So, how long till he files for a TUE?

And i was here hoping he'd come to the UFC. Kyle looked incredibly bad losing to Feijao and now him, getting busted. 2 in 1.

In B4 Identical excuse as cyborg.

A quote from discussion on what he got popped for.


"Yeah. Stanzonol is proper name for the common brand name Winstrol. Leben also got popped taking it when he came out shredded. I watched Leben weigh in and turned to my wife and said, "looks like some got the hook up on the Winny(I can't predict the future, I just have a ton of experience in that subject)" Winstrol is killer for gaining lean mass but the half life isn't easy to get right and thats why guys get busted on it often, just ask Canadian Olympic sprinter Ben Johnson. Guys mostly are using short esters and pissing clean easily but a lot of short esters add bloat which obviously not a desirable side effect while cutting weight. Winny yields hardly any bloat and it's only common complaint is that it is associated with joint pain"

They need to make a steroids anonymous. These guys must have serious addictions if they can't stop after all the people have been caught lately.
