MMA Fighter Suspended After Failed Marijuana Test

American mixed martial artist Fernando Gonzalez, who is currently competing in Bellator’s Welterweight division, has failed post-fight drug test for marijuana. The MMA fighter has been fined $1500 and the cost of his second offense’s doping test.

CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster said Gonzalez has been suspended for 90 days and the increased penalty is on the basis that the MMA fighter had twice violated rules of the commission on banned substances.

This is the second failed drugs test for Gonzalez. In 2014, Fernando Gonzalez tested positive for marijuana and received a suspension of one month and a fine of $315. However, his technical knockout of former UFC star Karo Parisyan was overturned after the failed test to a no-contest. At that time, Rob Emerson, Keith Berry, and Nick Moghaddam were also suspended and/or fined for post-fight drug test failures following Bellator 127. Berry and Moghaddam tested positive for marijuana and elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio while Emerson tested positive for Modafinil, which is a drug used to improve alertness and cognitive function. Gonzalez said he was smoking pot to help with insomnia and had not used it for enhancement. The MMA fighter said marijuana does not make anyone perform any better and all he used it for was to get a good sleep.

Born on September 15, 1983, Gonzalez is presently competing in Bellator’s Welterweight division. Since 2003, Gonzalez has been a professional competitor for the World Extreme Cagefighting, Strikeforce, and King of the Cage. The former WBC National Muay Thai Cruiserweight champion made his WEC and MMA debut on October 17, 2003 against Mike Castillo where he won via first round TKO. The American mixed martial artist made his Bellator debut against Bellator Season 6 Welterweight Tournament winner Karl Amoussou on July 25, 2014 at Bellator 122. Gonzalez, coming in as an underdog, won via unanimous decision to pull off a huge upset. In his second appearance for Bellator, Gonzalez stepped in as a replacement for Marious Zaromksis and won the fight in the first round via TKO. However, he was suspended for 30 days and fined $315 after he tested positive for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

In another development, Mike Richman has been suspended after he tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. It is believed that Richman tested positive for Drostanolone (Masteron) though the same is still not officially confirmed by the California State Athletic Commission. Richman failed the drugs test after his unanimous decision loss at Bellator 137 to Eduardo Dantas at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.  The American mixed martial artist accepted the failed drugs test and said he let himself, his family, coach, friends, and fans down because of the doping incident.

In 2008, Richman made his professional debut and compiled an undefeated record of 8-0 before he competed on The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck.

Bellator MMA President Scott Coker said in a statement that CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster has communicated of two positive tests following Bellator 137. It was revealed that Fernando tested positive for marijuana, while Richman failed a test for performance enhancing drugs.

Mike Richman Suspended For Two Years

American mixed martial artist Mike Richman has been suspended by the California State Athletics Commission (CSAC) following his Bellator 137 loss to Edurado Dantas on May 15, 2015 at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula. The bantamweight division fighter also came in overweight for the bout.

It is believed that Richman tested positive for Drostanolone, which is marketed as Masteron. This year, ex-UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva also tested positive for Drostanolone. Last July, UFC middleweight Kevin Casey tested positive for the same steroid following his UFC 175 win in Las Vegas over Bubba Bush. A few weeks later, featherweight prospect Brian Ortega was busted for Drostanolone after he defeated Mike de la Torre at UFC on Fox 12 in San Jose. The wins of Casey and Ortega were flipped to no contests and Casey and Ortega received suspensions of one year and nine months, respectively.

Masteron is widely used as a cutting cycle drug by professional bodybuilders. This anabolic androgenic steroid is also used by athletes for hardening muscles and is rated as an excellent finisher during a steroid cycle.

Richman (18-6) was more than three pounds over the bantamweight maximum of 136 pounds before Bellator 137. His fight against Edurado Dantas was almost called off before Dantas, the former Bellator bantamweight champion, agreed to take the fight. Richman was beaten by Dantas via unanimous decision.

The 29-year-old Richman has received a suspension of two years and will have to pay a fine of $2,500, according to a confirmation by California State Athletic Commission executive officer Andy Foster. The former U.S. marine was coming off back-to-back knockout wins over Ed West at Bellator 126 and Nam Phan at Bellator 131.

A statement by Bellator disclosed that Andy Foster of the CSAS has notified them of the positive test of Mike Richman for performance enhancing drugs. The statement added Bellator stand behind the California State Athletics Commission completely in the process and remains committed to keeping the sport of Mixed Martial Arts clean of substance abuse.

Richman took full responsibility of the mistake and issued an apology to everyone on his Facebook page. The professional competitor in MMA said he will not deny that he used the anabolic steroid and blame it on someone else. Richman went on to comment that he is cheat, plain and simple, and wants to apologize to Bellator MMA for his wrongdoing. Richman also remarked that he wants to apologize to his head MMA coach Greg Nelson as his positive test brought bad name. The MMA fighter also issued an apology to his S&C coach Matt Miller of Horsepower strength and conditioning and added he had no knowledge of his use of the steroid.

Born and raised in Rosemount, Mike Richman started competing in wrestling events from a young age. Upon graduating, Richman joined the United States Marine Corps and served three tours as an infantryman in Iraq and reached the rank of Sergeant. In 2008, Richman started training in mixed martial arts. Richman compiled an undefeated record of 8-0 before he competed on The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSPP vs. Team Koscheck.

Stephan Bonnar And Dave Herman Fail Drug Tests

 

@Stephan Bonnar and @Dave Herman, who both competed at UFC 153 on October 13, have failed to clear post-fight drug tests.

The Ultimate Fighter’ season 1 runner-up, Bonnar, who lost to Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 153 via TKO, tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone, announced his retirement from the sport after the bout.

Drostanolone or Masteron is an anabolic androgenic steroid that is a part of the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) family and commonly used in cutting cycles. Primarily used to treat breast cancer patients, it inhibits the production of estrogens by inhibiting the conversion  of testosterone to estrogen and is commonly used by amateur and professional sportsmen as it helps them gain from a more refined look to muscles. Since it is characterized by low water retention, muscle lines are more distinct and is commonly sold under the names, Masteron propionate and Masteron enanthate.

One of the most iconic names in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, Stephan Bonnar competed as a light heavyweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and was the runner up on season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. Best known for having never been submitted, he trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the legendary Carlson Gracie and has also made appearances as an analyst on the ESPN2 series MMA Live and for UFC broadcasts on the FOX television networks. This is his second positive test for anabolic steroids, the first of which followed his UFC 62 defeat to Forrest Griffin in August 2006 in a fight that is regarded by many as the most responsible for attracting casual fight fans to mixed martial arts. Bonnar tested positive for the banned substance Boldenone and was given a suspension for nine months besides a fine of $5,000. The 35-year-old Bonnar announced his retirement from mixed martial arts a little more than two weeks after the loss and finished his career with a record of 15-8. The use of Drostanolone by Bonnar is seen by many as the reason why he so quiet about his retirement from mixed martial arts and allowed Dana White to make the announcement for him.

Dave Herman, tested positive for marijuana metabolites, the same drug for which UFC welterweight Nick Diaz is presently suspended. He was submitted by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the co-main event of UFC 153 for his third loss in a row and also failed to clear a pre-fight drug screen issued by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation back in 2011 that makes UFC 153 his second failed drug test in less than two years. Dave Herman, an American mixed martial artist who competes in the heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, made his professional mixed martial arts debut on December 31, 2006. The UFC fighter fought for a variety of promotions including Bellator Fighting Championships, Shark Fights, and World Victory Road.

Marc Ratner, the UFC vice president of regulatory affairs, said twenty-two fighters out of 24 tested negative and two fighters tested positive. Punishments for the fighters will be issued sometime next week, Ratner said.
