The California State Athletic Commission has suspended WEC featherweight Alexandre “Pequeno” Nogueira for testing positive for Boldenone following his performance at WEC 34 which took place June 1 at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, CA.
Nogueira will have to serve a one year suspension and pay a $2500 fine before being eligible for reinstatement by the CSAC. He will have have an opportunity to appeal the ruling.
Boldenone is commonly used as a horse steroid in veterinary medicine. The Ultimate Fighter veteran Stephan Bonner and Kit Cope of MTV fame, were also busted for the use of this steroid in 2006.
