Expect Tougher Penalties From NSAC For Drug Violations


From MMAWeekly.com:

Commissioner John Bailey indicated that, at least in his opinion, fighters in violation of the prohibited substance regulations should not retain any portion of a win bonus. “I believe, at least speaking for myself… in the future, should any contestant, boxing and/or mixed martial artists, be given as a part of their compensation a bonus. And if they find themselves in front of us on a disciplinary matter that involves the ingestion of a prohibited substance that the win portion of their compensation will be immediately forfeited, if they are found guilty, it will be immediately forfeited to the state, and then we will assess punishment, monetary punishment, on the remaining guaranteed portion of their contract.”
