Mixed martial arts icon Royce Gracie (Pictures), best known as the slender gi-wearing Brazilian who twisted oversized competitors into knots during the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, tested positive for traces of Nandrolone, a commonly used anabolic steroid, following his decision win over Kazushi Sakuraba (Pictures), June 2 in Los Angeles, the California State Athletic Commission revealed Thursday.

Gracie (14-3-3) has been suspended from June 2, 2007 through May 30, 2008, and is fined $2,500, the maximum penalty by the CSAC. The 40-year-old member of the legendary fighting family has until July 13 to appeal the suspension to the CSAC.

Calls to Gracie's representatives were not immediately returned.

...

I gotta say, wow... Just wow... out of all the people. Crazy.

So I'm guessing the Win will eventually be changed to a NC....the Gracie's still can't get a win over the Gracie Hunter!

so it appears saku was robba'd, sad news really, kinda makes the whole jiu jitsu can beat any style arguement that the gracies have always made seem very tainted, this is a sad trend that i hope stops soon because too many careers are going to be halted if this continues. why arent pro fighters smarter and more respectful lately, makes no sense

No. The CSAC does not overturn results based on post-fight drug tests. The current legislation does not allow it.
