Invicta FC to implement random drug testing following Cyborg signing | MMA NEWS


Call it a coincidence, but Invicta FC recently announced that it will be implementing random drug tests at all future events just days after signing famed failed PED test taker, Cris “Cyborg” Santos.

Through MMA Junkie, Invicta FS stated: “For the first time in its short history, Invicta FC will utilize random drug testing for its upcoming fifth event on April 5. Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp confirmed the news on Sunday evening. Fighters who will be competing in April were informed of the new policy in late January. An independent agency in conjunction with the Missouri Office of Athletics will handle the testing.

The new anti-PED policy will extend to all future Invicta FC events. The promotion is currently fielding offers from a number of independent testing agencies and hopes to confirm its new testing partner later this week.”

Invicta FC stated that the future drug testing plans were put into place weeks before the singing of Santos.

Santos will be fighting at Invicta FC 5 for the first time since she was stripped of her Strikeforce title in December of 2011 following a positive test for Stanozolol.
