Cavalcante Tests Hot For Stanozolol | MMA NEWS

By: Jason Kindschy

Another win bites the dust.

The culprit of Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante’s failed drug test was the anabolic steroid known as Stanozolol. The same drug that fellow Brazilian fighter Christine “Cyborg” Santos failed for in December of 2011.

The California State Athletic Commission announced today that “Feijao” failed for Stanozolol, he will be suspended for 1 year, face a $2,500 fine, and the win over Mike Kyle will be overturned to a no-contest. Cavalcante’s win over Kyle was on the night Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Final back on May 19th in San Jose, California. The win came by way of guillotine choke, 33 seconds into the first round. This puts Rafael Cavalcante’s record at 11-3-1.

The win over Mike Kyle was allegedly going to put “Feijao” in line to fight Gegard Mousasi (32-3-2) for the vacant Strikeforce light-heavyweight title.

Stanozolol, also known as Winstrol, or Tenabol, derives from dihydrotestosterone, and is a commonly used performance enhancer by athletes of all kinds. All reputable athletic commissions and boards ban it across the globe. Stanozolol has even been used for horse racing in the U.S.

The CSAC says that Cavalcante was tested on May 18th, and CSAC executive officer George Dodd stated. “Anabolic agents and other banned substances put not only the users of those agents at risk, but their opponents as well. The commission simply will not tolerate their use.”

        Winny or Winstrol/Stanazolol actually stays in your system for shorter periods, it also doesn’t give many of the tell tale signs of most anabolics. Stanazolol builds LEAN muscle mass and is often used in bodbuilders cutting phase as it destroys surrounding fats and has some dehydration effects (removes excess water weight). When it comes to Roids, which are easier to obtain online anonymously than try, Winny is the bees knees for athletes that want extra strength and healing, but to maintain their girlish figures to make their specific weight class.

    He is trash

    When you really think about it, in detail, I think the biggest disappointing aspect, is the danger he puts against his opponent. It’s a sport where you, can seriously physically hurt, and injure another human being, say compared to 100 m sprint. That point, above makes him a total dick. Fuck’em.

  5. WTF!?! says:

    So, a straight up CHEATER using STEROIDS, not even a TRT “prescription” ONLY gets a $2,500 fine, yet Nick Diaz tests for marijuana METABOLITES and they charge him a MINIMUM of 40% ($80,000)!?!?? And they wonder why these guys still do steroids? Sure, they’re both suspended for a year but I think only loosing $2500 compared to $80,000 helps take the sting out a bit.

    If u juice.. It’s because u lack the moral fiber of a champion…. If u Hafta juice.. U are a weak person… That’s why guys like Cain can wreck guys like lesner.. He has the inner courage… While lesners out there… Use performance enhancers… To gain courage… I think lesner is the only guy.. I would root for Cain against.. Lol
