NSAC: WEC 42 featherweight Cole Province tests positive for steroid

Quote:
World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight Cole Province, who scored a unanimous-decision win over Fredson Paixao earlier this month at WEC 42, failed a drug test administered at the show by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer today announced Province tested positive for Methasterone metabolite. Methasterone, a "designer steroid" previously sold as an over-the-counter dietary supplement, was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2005.

Kizer today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that a formal complaint will be sent this week. Province is now under temporary suspension pending a formal hearing.

A suspension and fine could be issued at the hearing, and his victory could also be overturned to a no-contest, though news of the failed test came too late for the NSAC to add the case to its Aug. 19 meeting.

A total of nine fighters were tested at WEC 42, which took place Aug. 9 at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and only Province failed his test. Those who passed their tests included Miguel Torres, Brian Bowles, Dominick Cruz, Takeya Mizugaki, Leonard Garcia, Shane Roller, Ed Ratcliff and Diego Nunes.

Province, who competed on the WEC 42 preliminary card, made his WEC debut in late 2008 with a unanimous-decision loss to Nunes. The Oklahoma native owns a 6-1 career record.
