Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante’s Suspension Remains For Failed Test

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Calvalcante appeared close to a fight for the vacant Strikeforce title.

After defeating Mike Kyle, Cavalcante found out he had tested positive for the banned substance stanozolol and was suspended for one year by the California Athletic Commission.

On Monday, Cavalcante sought a reversal of that suspension – and the $2,500 fine – but was denied by the commission.

Cavalcante (11-3) will be able to re-seek his fight license in May of 2013.
