PostSubject: NUMEROUS MMA DRUG TEST FAILURES IN CALIFORNIA   Tue 03 Apr 2007, 6:16 pm



Welterweight UFC star Diego Sanchez is far from the only fighter to have a positive drug test in California that was not publicly disclosed at the time. MMAWeekly has obtained documentation indicating that nearly two-dozen MMA fighters have failed drug tests in the state of California over the past year without the drug test failures being publicly disclosed at the time.

You may notice in the list below that not a single fighter tested positive for steroids over the past year in California. This is because there has been no steroid testing in California over the past year. This will change in April 2007, according to CSAC head Garcia, who said, "No steroid policy has ever been in place in California. Obviously, I was not satisfied by this." Starting in April, a total of approximately 25 fighters per month will be tested for steroids in California, and any fighter who tests positive for steroids will be suspended for six months and fined $2,500.

The list below is in chronological order, with each item containing the date and name of the event, the name of the fighter who tested positive for a banned substance, the substance(s) for which the fighter tested positive, brief notes on the substance(s) if warranted, and the length of the fighter's suspension (which is consistently three months for marijuana and six months for anything other than marijuana).

I was wondering what happened to Ricco Rodriguez...he's been doing coke and smoking weed, I guess that is why he dropped off the competitive face of the earth. I hope he gets help, screw the fighting..the coke will bring you down harder than a couple rounds with Fedor

No kidding, Ricco took the TEAM PUNISHMENT too seriously,..he does blow, and Jenna blows Tito--I think they are going the way of the Lions Den, they were the "big thing" then next thing you know they are gone and not really remembered. TOO DAMN BAD- P.S. Did you ever see That reality show about a Las Vegas Casino and they showed one night in there VIP area Ricco, Tito and Kit Cope...they got the red carpet treatment and now they are all fading away...ESPECIALLY RICCO
