Cacares suspended for marijuna; Fukuda also test positive


All 22 fighters on the UFC® on FUEL TV 8 card were drug tested at the event and all fighters passed their drug tests with the exception of Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda.

Caceres tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout. He has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will receive a 6-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event and must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to compete again. The outcome of Caceres bout against Kyung Ho Kang will be changed to a no contest.

Fukuda’s results showed the presence of Phenylpropanolamine, Norpseudoephedrine and Ephedrine, which are stimulants and banned substances. Based on Fukuda’s last loss he has been released from his contract with the UFC and the results of his positive test will be reported to the official Association of Boxing Commissions record-keeper.

Hopefully Bruce Leroy can get over his debilitating addiction to Cheetos. Good to see the powers that be tackling the real problems in this sport.

There is still pseudoephedrine in cold meds and ephedrine in asthma medicine, you just have to get those meds from a pharmacist now instead of over the counter.

Bruce Leroy's idol Bruce Lee was a weed smoker. He shouldn't be penalized for emulating a martial arts legend yo.

You can argue weather weed should be legal until you turn blue, but that's not the point.You seriously can't fucking stop smoking for a month? Are you kidding? It's not something that's keeping you alive. Give me a break I have no sympathy for these guys at all.

weed has to seriously be taken off the banned list. the only way weed could EVER do anything to your preformance, good or bad, would be if you toked up right before your fight.
