Former NFL star's pre-Dynamite tests confirm anabolic steroid use...
Sherdog is reporting California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer Armando Garcia has confirmed ex-NFL star Johnnie Morton tested positive for anabolic steroids from a pre-fight urinalysis. Morton went on to lose his MMA debut to Bernard Achah by knockout in just 38 seconds.
After the bout Morton refused to take any further drug tests, causing his fight purse of $100,000 to be withheld. According to the statements Garcia gave Sherdog, Morton's first sample returned as a positive for "very elevated TE ratio, which is testosterone. And that is 83.9 -- the normal industry standard for an athlete is 6." Morton's second sample confirmed the test results.
"Right now we are waiting for the drugs of abuse test to be completed, cause now that process begins," Garcia said. "And then the 10 days are running for him to respond to the letter that I sent them. Right now the disciplinary part of this situation has not been completed because [Morton] hasn't responded to the 10 day."
