Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante, the former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion, recently tested positive for metabolites of stanozolol.

The Brazilian fighter failed a test following his May win over Mike Kyle. The California State Athletic Commission has announced Cavalcante to a year-long suspension besides asking him to pay a fine of $2,500.

“Our primary concern is for the health and safety of fighters,” CSAC executive officer George Dodd stated. “Anabolic agents and other banned substances put not only the users of those agents at risk, but their opponents as well. The commission simply will not tolerate their use.”
