The California State Athletic Commission has suspended WEC featherweight Alexandre “Pequeno” Nogueira for testing positive for Boldenone following his performance at WEC 34 which took place June 1 at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, CA.
Sherk was eligible for reinstatement on January 7, but didn’t pay his fine of $2500, until Monday.
Sherk was suspended following his fight with Hermes Franca at UFC 73 “Stacked” in July of last year. His lightweight title was later striped by the UFC and later won by BJ Penn at UFC 81, with a dominating win over Joe “Daddy” Stevenson.
According to MMAPredictions, The Nevada State Athletic Commission has voted to have the former UFC lightweight champion, Sean Sherk take an additional drug test, almost a month prior to is title fight with UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn at UFC 84 on May 24th in Las Vegas.
the NSAC has voted to require Sherk to present himself for an additional drug and steroid test during the week of April 21st.
The test is clearly intended to prevent Sherk from cycling off the ROIDS, which is a tactic that many steroid users use to test clean.
