Alexander Shlemenko’s drug suspension to be lifted after court ruling
(mmafighting.com)
Alexander Shlemenko will be able to fight again in the United States much sooner than expected. The former Bellator middleweight champion had his three-year suspension and $10,000 fine from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) reduced in a court decision Wednesday, per court documents. Shlemenko tested positive for steroids in February 2015 and was levied the sanctions by a unanimous commission vote in June 2015. The California Superior Court ruled that CSAC was only able to suspend Shlemenko until his license expired back on Feb. 28.. Shlemenko will also have to pay only a $5,000 fine. The Russian fighter's suspension will be lifted as soon as he pays the fine. Shlemenko is still under contract with Bellator, per promotion spokesperson Danny Brener.

(https:)
Two of the best light heavyweight fighters hailing from the Buckeye State are set to square off, as Dan Spohn will take on Matt Hamill at CFFC 60 on Aug. 6 in Atlantic City. Both fighters are also UFC veterans, and were also featured on “The Ultimate Fighter.” Spohn (13-5), who trains at Ronin Training Center in Columbus, is the former CFFC heavyweight champion. He was stripped of the title after losing a bout to Rodney Wallace in Canada earlier this year. Now, he’ll return to CFFC in his more natural light heavyweight class. “Dragon” is 5-1 since losing his lone UFC bout at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale after making the semifinals in the show’s tournament. Four of those wins have come via stoppage, including a TKO victory over Azunna Anyanwu last December that earned him the CFFC title.

Scary late stoppage at Legacy 56
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Being a mixed martial arts ref is thankless. No fighter who ever won, ever, thought to himself "the ref gave me that win." But in a significant number of losses, fighters and camps point to ref incompetence as a factor. Fans too will offer criticism of decisions that must be made in far, far, far less than a second. Further, there is a common misconception that promotions choose the ref. If a ref does not do well, it is not the promotion's fault. Responsibility for choosing and licensing fight refs falls to the relevant Athletic Commission. All that said, what happened in the main event at Legacy FC 56 on Friday night was a little scary.
