Following a loss at Tachi Palace Fights 7 against Jorge Oliveira back in December, Irvin’s PED’s test came back positive. Found was epitrenbolone, aka trenbolone metabolite, a steroid used in livestock to enhance muscle growth and increase appetite.
Already the CSAC has released a statement that Irvin will in fact be in fact fined and suspended, with the suspension start date being retroactive to Dec. 3.
Irvin was originally scheduled to rematch Houston Alexander at Shark Fights 14 on March 11 but will now be ineligible. Oddly his opponent was also unavailable for the fight as Alexander had reported an undisclosed injury that occurred during training.
