Bad news, War Gods fans - it looks like UFC veteran "Cabbage" Correira won't be headlining that May 30th show after all. The MMA Insider Blog reports: Wesley "Cabbage" Correira, who bailed on his recent fight in Fresno at the Ken Shamrock-promoted "War Gods," got a post-event present he probably didn't want. The UFC and Rumble on the Rock veteran's pre-fight drug test came back positive for marijuana, registering a staggering 700 ng/mL of the drug in his system. As [Assistant Executive Officer of the CSAC Bill] Douglas earlier told MMAInsider, "anything above 50 ng/mL is a truely active user." Correira's suspension is retroactive to the missed fight and runs until Aug. 12, 2009. He is also fined $1,000.

The California State Athletic Commission suspended Wesley "Cabbage" Correira last week for failing to satisfy a one-fight contract to face Buddy Clinton at a co-promoted Wargods and Ken Shamrock Productions event on Feb. 13 in Fresno, Calif. Correira (19-14) pulled out of the bout backstage at the Selland Arena an hour before his scheduled bout, he said after he learned the promotion would be cutting his fight purse in half to cover last-minute costs for his state-required medical tests. The 30-year-old Hawaiian known for his granite chin told Sherdog.com on Friday that he’d been issued a letter from the regulatory agency late last week, stating that he must hold up his end of an agreement he signed with the California-based promotion before he would be licensed to fight anywhere else in the state again. A Wargods representative said the four-time UFC veteran will be asked to headline the promotion’s next event on May 30 in San Diego, though Correira was slated to face Lavar Johnson for the vacant Palace Fighting Championship heavyweight title on May 8 in Lemoore, Calif. PFC promoter Christian Printup could not be immediately reached for comment, though the event is held on sovereign land and not overseen by the CSAC. from Sherdog
