Unfortunate news coming out of the UFC today, as it is being reported that Roy “Big Country” Nelson has failed his mandatory drug test following his KO victory over Stefan Struve.
Nelsons was found with three different anabolics in his system at the time of the test; Norandrosterone, Noretiocholanolone, and Stanozolo. The same mixture that former UFC champ Ken Shamrock tested positive for in 2009 which lead the California state athletic commission to suspend Shamrock for one year. No word on the actions taken by the North Carolina athletic commission as of yet, but it would be safe to assume they would follow California’s ruling.
When we contacted Nelson about the failed drug test, Nelson had this to say on the matter:
“Ah man, does this mean I don’t get to go to McDonalds”?
If you are still reading and haven’t realized by now, it is April first, and you have been April Fooled. Thanks for playing, and we would like to congratulate Roy Nelson on a CLEAN KO victory over an amazing opponent, Stefan Struve.
