Steroids in MMA

According to MMA Fanhouse, WEC featherweight prospect Cole Province has tested positive for the designer anabolic steroid Methasterone, following his unanimous decision win over Fredson Paixao at WEC 42:

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer told FanHouse on Monday that there is a possibility that Province’s win may be changed to a no decision. Whether or not a fine and suspension will be issued, will be determined after Province responds to a complaint to be sent out by the commission this week.

The 28-year-old Oklahoma native is the fourth MMA fighter to test positive for steroids this year — following Kirill Sidelnikov, Ken Shamrock, and Josh Barnett — but just the first fighter to piss dirty in Nevada since Kit Cope in January 2007. Province only made six grand for his recent win, and will likely be giving up a sizable chunk of it to the NSAC. We’ll update the definitive timeline as soon as we learn more about Province’s punishment and response.
