Gary Shaw's plans to expand EliteXC's Women's divisionmay have just taken a hit. Recent EXC signee Carina Damm, who was to have fought on June 27, has tested positive for Nandrolone according to the CSAC and has been suspended 1 year and fined $2500. She'll be eligible to fight again on April 2, 2009.
For those that dont know..
Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid occurring naturally in the human body, albeit in small quantities. Nandrolone is most commonly sold commercially as its decanoate ester (Deca-Durabolin) and less commonly as a phenylpropionate ester (Durabolin). Nandrolone decanoate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women (though now not recommended) at a dose of 50 mg every three weeks.
I guess she can try to say she is postmenopausal, except I dont think shes that old...
