Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda Fail UFC On Fuel 8 Drug Tests

The UFC has announced that they have tested all competitors at UFC On Fuel TV 8: Silva Vs Stann and all results came back clean with the exception of Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda. UFC President Dana White has recently taken a harder stance on performance enhancing drugs, and it is abundantly clear they are taking it seriously. Fukuda lost his bout so the result will stay the same, but he was released from his contract. Caceres’ bout with Kyung Ho Kang will be changed to a no contest, and he was suspended for six months.

Caceres tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout. He has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will receive a 6-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event and must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to compete again. The outcome of Caceres bout against Kyung Ho Kang will be changed to a no contest.

Fukuda’s results showed the presence of Phenylpropanolamine, Norpseudoephedrine and Ephedrine, which are stimulants and banned substances. Based on Fukuda’s last loss he has been released from his contract with the UFC and the results of his positive test will be reported to the official Association of Boxing Commissions record-keeper.
