It was revealed shortly after the Bellator 149 event that co-main event fighter Kimbo Slice and main event fighter Ken Shamrock failed their fight drug tests.

According to a report released by MMA Junkie, 52-year-old Shamrock and 42-year old Slice both tested positive for the steroid nandrolone, according to urine test results released by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation oversees the Texas Combative Sports program as Bellator 149 was held at Houston’s Toyota Center on Feb. 19.

Shamrock also tested positive for methadone, which is a synthetic opioid used to treat heroin addicts, according to the report.

Via MMA Junkie:

Shamrock and Slice each face up to a one-year suspension and $5,000 fine. The TDLR is offering the fighters a settlement – good until March 31 – for “coming into compliance” that offers a reduced punishment of a $3,000 and a license revocation, records show. Compliance equates to the fighters explaining their side of the story to the commission, TDLR Susan Stanford told MMAjunkie.
