'Cyborg' Santos appealing steroid suspension

by Loretta Hunt | source: mma-boxing.si.com

Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos has begun the process to appeal a one-year suspension handed down by the California State Athletic Commission on Jan. 6 for alleged steroid use, her personal manager confirmed to SI.com.

Santos’ manager, who asked not to be identified by name, said a response letter was mailed to the CSAC on Monday requesting a hearing in front of the seven-member commission.

The CSAC suspended the Strikeforce 145-pound women’s champion after a pre-fight urinalysis came back positive for Stanzolol metabolites following Santos’ dominant 16-second victory over Hiroko Yamanaka on Dec. 17. As it stands, Santos will be eligible to appear before the CSAC for license reinstatement on Dec. 16. Santos was also ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and the fight’s result was changed to a “No Decision” by the CSAC.

CSAC Executive Officer George Dodd said Santos’ appeal would likely be heard at an April 6 meeting with the venue to be determined.

Guyborg Mantos needs to shut his yapper.And twitter bonuses should work both ways with Zuffa. Using social media to promote the sport? Great. Bonus.But if you get caught roiding and then post a photoshopped image of a clean fighter, you should have 3 months added on to any suspensions you've already earned.

 If her "tainted supplement" defense is true - and even if it is I'm not sure it should be a defense - it would not be the first case of a supplement marketed to athletes containing a banned substance not listed on the label.  The rumor mill tells the athletes which supplements have that extra edge and where to obtain them.  My suggestion is never to use supplements that are not available at your corner drug store.  Multivitamins with iron and minerals as insurance against deficiencies in diet, smart nutrition, dedicated training, and may the best (wo)man win.

In what fucking fantasy world do you live in where you see this as a good case? She admitted to taking a "tainted" illegal diuretic, and we all know she was knowingly shooting up!
