Two suspensions have been handed out in the UFC, following their latest UFC on FX 6. Rousimar Palhares and Joey Beltran both failed their drug tests, according to UFC officials.
Beltran’s test results showed positive levels of nandrolone, an anabolic steroid. Therefore, his victory over Igor Pokrajac has been stripped, and rightfully so. He also received a nine month suspension for his wrong-doings.
Rousimar Palhares tested positive for high levels of testosterone, and will also receive a nine month suspension, although he was knocked out by the hands of Hector Lombard anyway, so no win will be taken away.
Palhares and Beltran will have to pass a drug test before re-entering the octagon again, at which point they are sure to be swarmed with boos from the crowd and hateful remarks on Twitter.
We’re thankful that UFC continues to hold their fighters that to a high standard and to make example of those fighters that use illegal enhancement drugs.This has been read 1 times
