KEN SHAMROCK TESTS POSITIVE FOR STEROIDS
Wednesday, March 11, 2009 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com
Following his first win in over four years, former UFC and Pride fighter Ken Shamrock allegedly tested positive for three different anabolic agents after defeating Ross Clifton in the War Gods show on Feb. 13. The California State Athletic Commission announced the infraction on Wednesday.
According to the statement, Shamrock tested positive for Norandrosterone, Noretiocholanolone, and Stanozolol.
Shamrock faces a suspension retroactive to the date of the bout, which will run from Feb. 13, 2009 to Feb. 1, 2010. The leader of the Lion's Den will also face a $2,500 fine imposed from the commission.
Shamrock will have the right to appeal the decision, and according to the athletic commission statement, they will make no further comment about the situation pending Shamrock's right to appeal.
This obviously puts his bout upcoming on March 21 against former WWE star Bobby Lashley under scrutiny as the two former pro wrestlers were set to do battle as a part of Roy Jones Jr.'s upcoming boxing/MMA hybrid show.
