Feijao Tests Positive For Banned Substance Following Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier

So much for that title fight with Mousasi.

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante has tested positive for a banned substance following his quick victory over Mike Kyle at last month’s ‘Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier’ event.

As CSAC executive officer George Dodd confirmed with MMAFighting.com, Cavalcante was informed of his failed test earlier in the week, but has yet to respond. At this time, the fighter has been suspended for one year, and fined $2,500 by the athletic commission.

Ed Soares, who manages ‘Feijao’, claims his camp has sent out an official response to the CSAC, and will be appealing the decision.
