MMA Regulatory Roundup

Posted: November 6, 2014 in Uncategorized

A quick roundup of recent regulatory punishments of note this week in the world of MMA.

The penalty for Gonzalez is perhaps the most noteworthy.  The positive marijuana test did not result in overturning his victory and only brought a modest fine.  This can be contrasted with the competitors who tested positive for drugs with performance enhancing qualities where the result was overturned.

    Do you know of previous provigil cases? – the punishment seemed somewhat harsh (270 day suspension/$2500 fine) – somewhat close to steroid use punishments. I wonder what the circumstances were (eg. did he have a prescription for a medical disorder?).

    Kyle, thanks for your comment. Off hand no, but if I come across any I’ll let you know.
