PostSubject: Report: Kazuhiro Nakamura Will Appeal UFC 76 Drug Suspension   Mon 01 Oct 2007, 12:07 am


Posted by MMA Junkie on September 28, 2007 at 9:00 am ET


The management team for Kazuhiro Nakamura, a longtime PRIDE Fighting Championships fighter who failed a UFC 76 drug test due to marijuana, plans to fight the charge on the grounds that California State Athletic Commission officials botched the drug test — and other medical tests.
J-ROCK, Nakamura’s management team, issued a press release about its decision to appeal the test. The release was translated by Zack Arnold at FightOpinion.com, an expert on the Japanese fight scene.
J-ROCK claims Nakamura never used marijuana.

On Wednesday, the CSAC announced that Nakamura, who suffered a unanimous-decision loss to Ryoto Machida, has tested positive for marijuana and had been fined $500 and suspended three months. He was the only one of the 18 fighters on the Sept. 22 card to test positive for recreational drugs; results from the tests for performance enhancers and diuretics are still pending.

According to Arnold, the crux of J-ROCK argument is that a U.S. CT scan showed Nakamura was experiencing some bleeding in his brain — something a subsequent scan in Japan didn’t show.

As Arnold explained: “Therefore, J-ROCK’s public stance is that there were mistakes with other medical tests and that there must have been a mistake with the CSAC drug test. They do not accept the current findings from the initial CSAC drug test.“

There’s no word on when the appeal may be heard.
