Former Bellator Champ Set To Fight The System

Shlemenko

Alexander Shlemenko is planning to fight the California State Athletic Commission regarding his failed drug test. The former Bellator Middleweight Champion was busted in his pre-fight drug test at Bellator 133.

Shlemenko has secured the services of attorney Howard Jacobs who released the following statement:

Alexander Shlemenko denies the use of any banned substances, and looks forward to clearing his name at the next meeting of the California State Athletic Commission with his lawyer Howard Jacobs. His representatives have requested and are still awaiting the complete laboratory documentation package from the CSAC, given the extremely unusual and questionable findings that have been initially reported. The document request that has been made is consistent with the types of documents that the testing laboratory used in this case routinely provides — without the necessity for such a request — in cases involving the United States Anti-Doping Agency. It is impossible for Mr. Shlemenko to properly respond to these charges until he is provided with this basic documentation, and it is hoped that CSAC will not withhold such basic documentation.
