March 17, 2015 11:20 am by BJPENN.COM News

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has confirmed, through multiple outlets, that former Bellator middleweight champion, Alexander Shlemenko has failed his pre-fight drug test for his Bellator 133 appearance.

The State of California will not disclose the substances Shlemenko failed for, citing privacy laws, but have confirmed they will be seeking a suspension and fine.

Rumors and reports state that the Bellator middleweight failed for grossly elevated levels of testosterone, though there is no way to confirm this.

The CSAC has flagged Shlemenko for two banned substances.
