    Mike King flunks UFC Fight Night 46 drug test, loses $50,000 bonus
    http://mmajunkie.com/2014/08/mike-ki...es-50000-bonus
    According to UFC.com:


    UFC middleweight Mike King tested positive for nandrolone following his bout against Cathal Pendred at UFC Fight Night Dublin: McGregor vs. Brandao on July 19, 2014. He was informed that his positive test violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and Promotional Agreement with Zuffa, LLC. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by our athletes. He agreed to serve a 9-month suspension retroactive to the event and must pass a drug test before receiving clearance to compete again. He will forfeit his $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus.

    I will never understand the usage of illicit substances when a person is a professional athlete. It is ones job to stay healthy, clean and in great physical condition in order to perform ones trade, clean being one of the three.
    I truly truly wish the UFC just stepped up and said from now on one time testing positive you get a year or two ban from competition within the organization and you will not be let out of your contract nor will you be paid. Second time not only will you be fined but then you will be released from contract and the state athletic commission should ban the person from competition in the state.


    Those who do not appreciate life, do not deserve life.

    A loss of his bonus money and his job in the UFC. Punishment seems to fit the crime. Only if this were more consistent.

    Amazing how some fighters lose their bonus money and get the pink slip and some receive title shots...

    WELCOME TO THE UFC, run by your's truly, MR. DANA WHITE.

    Dana is on holidays in New Zeland so I doubt he is the one to give King the axe. Just sayin'

    I don't have any idea about who is this Mike King dude, but why some fighters that test positive only get a suspension, and other get cut?
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
