Cris Cyborg Positive for Steroids
This is a blow for women's MMA...
" CALIFORNIA STATE ATHLETIC COMMISSION SUSPENDS LICENSE OF FIGHTER CRISTIANE JUSTINO SANTOS – a.k.a. CRIS CYBORG
Mixed Martial Arts fighter tested positive for anabolic steroid in December 16, 2011 test
The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has suspended the license of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Cristiane Justino Santos, better known in MMA circles as Cris Cyborg, and has fined her $2,500 as the result of a positive test for a banned substance.
Santos’ December 16, 2011 drug test came back positive for stanozolol metabolites. CSAC learned of the test results December 23, 2011 and suspended Santos’s license, with the suspension applied retroactively to December 16, 2011. In accordance with Rule 368, the result of her last fight between Hiroko Yamanaka will be changed to a “No Decision”.
“Our primary concern is for the health and safety of fighters,” said CSAC Executive Officer George Dodd. “Anabolic agents and other banned substances put not only the users of those agents at risk, but their opponents as well. The commission simply will not tolerate their use.”
The use of certain substances, including anabolic steroids, is prohibited under the Commission’s regulations, and CSAC has among the toughest drug testing standards of any Athletic Commission in the country. It is the only commission that requires urine samples to be taken in the presence of a commission representative prior to a bout.
Santos’s provision of a urine sample was observed by a CSAC representative and the sample was sent to the World Anti-doping Agency test facility at the University of California, Los Angeles. Santos has the right to appeal the suspension of her license."
Oh come on now there's no way that this errrr woman?? Is on roids:
I heard water might be wet as well....
To be serious for a second, this is a motherfucking disaster. It seems to me the UFC's been looking for a viable excuse to shut down the female SF division for a while now and this is just that - no unbeatable champion to hype fights with, no apparent interest, no need to keep the MOST unseemly and BARBAROUS female MMA division around. Sorry girls, back to fighting for peanuts in the puny promotions that let women fight in America. Maybe Santos can now rematch Marloes Coenen for 50$ and a side of beef in that pissant promotion she signed up for a while back.
Man, this is really going to motivate high-level female athletes to try their hand at MMA and no mistake. **** Santos and **** the UFC buyout of SF.
