Two Mma Fighters Disciplined In California

Two fighters in California that most recently competed against each other for Galaxy Productions on Aug. 24 in Imperial Beach received disciplinary action from the California State Athletic Commission according to Bill Douglas, a representative of the commission.

Fighter Ty Montgomery has had his license revoked and has been fined $2,500. Montgomeryís license revocation is the result of receiving three separated disciplinary actions from the CSAC within the last eleven months. According to Douglas, Montgomery tested positive for marijuana in September of 2006 and August of 2007, and also was disciplined in March of 2007 for a physical altercation at a weigh-in with the promotionís matchmaker.

Montgomery is eligible to apply for reinstatement on Aug. 31, 2008, but must appear in front of the CSAC in order to do so.

Virgil Zwicker defeated Montgomery by technical knockout at the Galaxy Productions event. He has been suspended from Aug. 24 through Nov. 22 and fined $500, also for testing positive for marijuana.

Montgomery and Zwicker are the latest additions to a growing list of mixed martial artists, among other athletes, under drug related suspension in California. Unlike most states, California tests all fighters participating in sanctioned mixed martial arts events for performance enhancing drugs, as well as drugs of abuse.
