The CSAC announced Monday that Bill Mahood, who fought and lost to Bobby Southworth at Strikeforce on 9/29, has failed a post-fight drug test.

Article

The Fight Network reports Mahood was suspended for 1 year and fined $2.500. He apparently took the same substance as UFC's Hermes Franca.

Is it just me, or do the guys that get busted for steroids lose 90% of the time?

And even worse for him is that he's now losing money as a result. The Fight Network said his fight purse was only $1,000, so because of the fine he's now $1,500 in the red. Maybe that's what needs to be done: Fine the guilty fighters more than what they would've earned in the fight so they'll realize taking these drugs/steroids will ultimately cost them more than they would earn in the dollar column.
