View Full Version : Ken Shamrock Suspended for Steroids

UFC legend Ken Shamrock has been suspended for one year for testing positive for the steroid Stanozolol, as well as two Nandrolone-based substances, 19-Norandrosterone and 19-Noretiocholanolone, according to a statement issued by the California State Athletic Commission on Wednesday.

Shamrock, who turned 45 on Feb. 13, picked up a one-minute victory over super heavyweight Ross Clifton at Wargods ***8220;Valentine***8217;s Eve Massacre***8221; on Feb. 14 in Fresno, Calif. Shamrock***8217;s production company also co-promoted the event.

Shamrock***8216;s manager and attorney Rod Donohoo said the fighter has adamantly denied the allegations and will appeal the suspension.

***8220;Ken was taking legal over-the-counter products, and based upon our preliminary research, I***8217;m investigating if those products were the result of these findings,***8221; Donohoo told on Wednesday.

Shamrock was scheduled to face fellow WWE pro wrestler Bobby Lashley in a headlining heavyweight bout for the Roy Jones Jr.-helmed Squared Ring Promotion***8217;s ***8220;March Badness***8221; on March 21 at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla. However, the Florida State Boxing Commission will likely uphold the CSAC***8217;s suspension and an appeals process will not be completed before March 21.

Donohoo told that he will request an expedited appeal.

***8220;Ken is willing to submit to immediate testing in Sacramento to prove his innocence,***8221; said Donohoo.

If the suspension is not overturned, Shamrock will be eligible to re-apply for licensure in California after Feb. 1, 2010 and will pay a $2,500 fine.

Dumb. You can take over the counter **** and still test positive. I bet if he read the label it would say "if you use this product, your urinalysis may reflect an increase in _______" etc.
