Strikeforce light heavyweight Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante tested positive for a banned substance following his win over Mike Kyle last month in San Jose, Calif. The California State Athletic Commission executive officer George Dodd confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Friday. Boxing reporter Gabriel Montoya first reported the news on Twitter.

As a result, Cavalcante has been suspended for one year and fined $2,500 by the CSAC.

Dodd refused to disclose which banned substance Cavalcante tested positive for because he was not at his office when contacted by MMAFighting.com. He said the CSAC sent Cavalcante a letter earlier this week informing him of the failed test but they have yet to hear back from him.

That's a shame. Do they overturn the win or not in this situation?

Should depend on whether the substance was considered performance enhancing or not. It was in California, so it should get overturned if that is the case. If you remember, California didn't used to overturn fights, but I think it was the Royce/Saku II fight that led them to change it.

The use of banned substances is getting old. Give them a 5 year suspension and a $150,000 fine and the sh*t would disappear overnight.

I'll hold off any judgement until we know what the banned substance was. Caffeine is a banned substance in some sports and some OTC cold medicines can pop you positive on an MMA drug test. No sense rushing into judgement until more details come out.

Indeed, we'll see what the substance actually is, but man, as if the Strikeforce LHW division wasn't already troubled enough.

I'm not optimistic considering the camp (ATT) and their history with failed drug tests. Every single top guy from the team is busted eventually.
