Nakamura tests positive for marijuana
Six of the 18 fighters tested after their UFC 76 bouts were clean, and the tests from the additional 12 fighters should be available soon.
Bill Douglas of the California State Athletic Commission today released the update.
UFC 76 took place Sept. 22 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. and featured a main-event bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell and the man who upset him, Keith Jardine.
Last week the CSAC reported that 17 of the 18 UFC 76 fighters had tested negative for drugs of abuse/recreational drugs. (Kazuhiro Nakamura tested positive for marijuana and plans to appeal.) However, testing for anabolic stroroids, masking agents and diuretics takes a little longer to complete.
The first batch of results came back today, and Matt Wiman, Michiro Omigawa, Christian Wellisch, Scott Junk, Jeremy Stephens and Diego Saraiva all tested clean.
The results from the remaining fighters, including all 10 main-card participants, will be released as additional testing is finalized, Douglas reported.
