Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda Fail Post-Fight Drug Tests | UFC News

 

UFC bantamweight Alex Caceres (9-5 before test, 8-5, 1 No Contest, now) has failed his post-fight drug test after UFC on Fuel TV 8.

UFC on FUEL TV took place on March 2nd at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. Caceres fought on the preliminary card against Kyung Ho Kang where he won a split decision, his second one in a row and his third straight victory. Barring this recent failed drug test and a split decision loss to Edwin Figueroa after being deducted two points for kicks to the groin, Caceres would be riding a five-fight win streak.

Caceres failed for marijuana metabolites and his last win will be changed to a No Contest.

This marks the second fighter to fail his drug test from the March 2nd FUEL TV card alone.

Riki Fukuda also failed his post-fight drug test for banned substances phenylpropanolamine, norpseudoephedrine and ephedrine.

Fukuda has been streaky since his arrival in the UFC and lost to Brad Tavares on the same card that Caceres fought on. This marks Fukuda’s third loss in five fights.

Fukuda has been cut by the UFC as well but not necessarily for the failed drug test even if it seems to validate their decision.

    this is getting ridiculous! First of all mj is not an enhancer and furthermore these tools keep getting busted for banned substances! Seriously they need to start cutting people because of that reason, if you get busted for steroids or whatever, you should get cut on the spot, not this suspension bs.

  2. Kender says:

    It is getting ridiculous. They need to ask themselves whats more important, smoking a joint or being an elite MMA fighter. Personally I don’t see what the problem with smoking is but that’s the rules of the sport.
    I know that in my job if I get busted then I’m out, regardless of what anybody’s opinions are about it. I know that and its my decision to follow it or not.
    Until the rules and/or laws are changed then this is going to happen. They know the rules going into this but they do it anyway. So who’s to blame?
