Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante's recent failed drug test was due to stanozolol metabolites.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported Saturday, the Brazilian fighter failed a test following his May win over Mike Kyle. On Monday the California State Athletic Commisssion confirmed the substance.

The CSAC on Monday also said that in addition to Cavalcante's yearlong suspension and $2,500 fine, his win over Kyle will be overturned and changed to a no-contest.

I don't know anything about any of the drugs.

Feijao is filing an appeal, I believe.

Poor Strikeforce.

A rumor I read in another forum - "Im beginning to think a lot of these "injuries" are fighters getting popped by Zuffa's pre-pre fight drug test."

Yeah and it's out of your system in 3-4 weeks. 5 weeks and oral stanozolol is basically 99.9% guaranteed out regardless of how each athlete's body metabolizes it. There's really no excuse for testing positive for any oral steroid aside from the very unfortunate few who legit took a product that didn't list it or lists a designer version that metabolizes into the banned PED and in that case you should really not be experimenting with off-brand supplements at this level of the sport.
