EliteXC and Affliction Drug Test Failures Will be Announced Tomorrow

New, 41 comments

Dave Meltzer reports that the California State Athletic Comission has announced that there was one failure for drugs on each show, and the people who failed will be announced tomorrow.  No word on why they're turning this into such a dramatic event:

Bill Douglas of the CSAC released that B samples have been returned positive for one fighter on both the July 19th Affliction show in Anaheim and the July 25 EliteXC CBS card in Stockton.

The names will be released tomorrow after notification of the promotions and fighters.  Douglas also announced Fabio Negao and Matt Lindland on the Affliction show are clear, as are Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith on the EliteXC show.

I guess results are slowly coming in, and they're just going to announce them as they come.  These could be the first failures of many, or the only ones.

Here is the list of fighters that have been cleared on each show so far.  Just as a reminder, Justin Levens was suspended. 

Affliction: 

Ray Lizama  
Gary Goodridge 
Paul Buentello 
Terry Martin 
Vitor Belfort 
JJ Ambrose 
Mike Pyle 
Mike Whitehead 
Renato Sobral 
Savant Young 
Mark Hominick 
Pedo Rizzo 
Josh Barnett 
Ben Rothwell 
Andrei Arlovski 
Fabio Negao 
Matt Lindland 

EliteXC: 

Brandon Tarn 
Drew Montgomery 
Mike Cook 
Carl Seumanutafa 
Marlon Matias 
David Douglas 
Jeremy Freitag 
Anthony Ruiz  
Bryan Caraway 
Wilson Reis 
Travis Galbraith 
Rafael Feijao 
Shayna Baszler 
Cristiane Cyborg Santos 
Thomas Denny 
Nick Diaz 
Scott Smith 
Robbie Lawler 

On the Affliction side, this leaves only Fedor Emelianenko, Tim Sylvia, Antonio Nogueira, and Edwin Dewees.  I can only imagine what will happen if it's Fedor, but we do know Tim has been popped for it before.  

On the Pro Elite side, we have Jake Shields, Nick Thompson, Antonio Silva, and Justin Eilers.

My list comes from Bryan Alvarez who just posted a full list on his board.  The information is publicly available too.  I'm a little concerned about posting this because of all the speculation it will cause, and it could turn out to be nothing, but it sounds like we will have at least one major drug failure tomorrow, unless it turns out to be Edwin Dewees and Justin Eilers.
