1 year suspension upheld by CSAC for Cris 'Cyborg' Justino

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

Cris "Cyborg" Justino will spend one year of her prime on the sidelines, the result of the California state athletic commission (CSAC) voting to uphold her suspension stemming from a positive steroids test last December.

It was all smiles for Cyborg on December 17, when she needed just 16 seconds to TKO Hiroko Yamanaka in her return following an 18-month layoff, but the good times didn't last when she was informed she tested positive for stanozolol after the bout. In her Monday hearing, she didn't contest the results but said she had been given the supplements by a member of her coaching staff.

In her remarks, Cyborg said she didn't condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs in MMA, and her attorney noted that they have taken steps to have her tested monthly and make sure the supplements she will take in the future won't contain any banned substances.

Their arguments, however, didn't lead to any leniency from CSAC in confirming their original one-year penalty and a $2,500 fine, which her lawyer said she has already paid. A motion by commissioner John Frierson to reduce the suspension to six months was denied.

 Probably because they realized that Cyborg was essentially a man beating up women.

Also, considering how well Gina did against Mr.Cyborg. I wouldn't assume Ronda couldn't beat him.

Of course. It's not fair to force a woman (Ronda), to fight a man (Cyborg).Only an idiot would pretend that Cyborg's domination isn't injection-based. Take away her man's body, and then see how "she" does.
