Feijao Suspended For One Year After Testing Positive For Banned Substance

By Jamie McAllister
Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante has been suspended for a year as well as fined $2,500. confirmed the news after hearing from California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) Executive Officer George Dodd.

Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante last competed at Strikeforce: “Barnett vs. Cormier” on May 19th in San Jose, California. He faced Mike Kyle defeating him impressively via submission just 33 seconds into the first round.

No information on what exactly the banned substance was as Dodd did not release that information. However the Cavalcante camp plan to fight the charge by appealing the decision.

Ed Soares, Cavalcante’s manager commented to MMAFighting.

“I believe in his innocence, and we’re fighting it,”

“We stand behind him. There’s a lot of stuff that doesn’t make sense.”

There had Olympic commissioners go on record and say they were aware of the drug use that pretty much the USA and Russia were battling to see who could produce the best steroids give them to athletes and win medals.

    Another weed smoker bites the dust…. I guess the way CSAC sees it that’s how the cookie crumbles …. In this case that’s how the weed is crumbled

    Ok jokes aside no idea what he used but it’s getting out of hand in MMA evey other event someone is getting pulled in for some sort of PED this needs to stop OR!! we can make a new sport we call it EMMA enhancedMMA

    every mofo is on roids speed like a bolt strong as an ox and there will be no controversy who is on PED

    E.M.M.A….. Watch this space.
