Middleweight Phil Baroni (Pictures) tested positive for Boldenone and Stanozolol Metabolites, the California State Athletic Commission announced Tuesday afternoon. The 31-year-old from Long Island, New York has been fined $2,500 and suspended 365 days from the conclusion of his loss against Frank Shamrock (Pictures) on June 22 in San Jose. The final 51 days of that suspension will be fulfilled at the start of Baroni's next licensing year, should he decide to reapply.

Baroni joins Carter Williams who was suspended six months and fined $1,000 following a positive test for cocaine, as the second fighter to test positive for banned substances following the Strikeforce/EliteXC co-promoted card.

All other fighters on the card have been cleared by the CSAC.

Is Pro-Elite just handing this stuff out in the locker room or something?

Baroni will never ever get a chance in the UFC now. And even after the fight i was beggining to respect Phil, what a shame

Was never a big fan of Shamrock, but Baroni is making him look good.

Thats no good. The thing that I find strange about steroids is that usually the fighters who are using them have lackluster performances.

I agree with everyone that i started to really respect baroni after that fight. He went out their and really gave it his all. But now he ruined it forever. Who would have thought Frank Shamrock would come out of this looking so good.
