Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante‘s appeal to the California State Athletic Commission was denied on Monday.

Following a lengthy meeting between the fighter and his representatives, who were heard before the commission, the commissioners ultimately decided to uphold the one-year suspension first handed down earlier this year.

Cavalcante and his lawyer, along with manager and agent Ed Soares, appeared before the commission to argue their belief that the chain of custody of the sample taken from the fighter was handled incorrectly.
