The California State Athletic Commission has suspended and fined Kirill Sidelnikov, who suffered a loss to Paul Buentello at the Jan. 24 “Affliction: Day of Reckoning” event, for failing a drug test.
Sidelnikov, also known as “Baby Fedor,” tested positive for the synthetic anabolic steroid Stanozolol. He's been suspended one year and fined $2,500.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the possible failed test earlier this week and contacted the CSAC, which today sent a press release confirming the suspension and fine.
According to CSAC Assistant Executive Officer Bill Douglas, the mere presence of Stanozolol in the system constitutes a violation under the new testing procedures for CSAC.
