Two UFC fighters Riki Fukuda and Alex Caceres failed post-fight drugs test after competing at ‘UFC On Fuel TV 8’ in Japan earlier this month.
Fukuda lost a decision to Brad Tavares and then tested positive for three banned substances ((phenylpropanolamine, norpseudoephedrine and ephedrine).
As a result he’s now been released from the UFC, bringing an end to an underwhelming 2-3 campaign in the Octagon.
As for Caceres, aka ‘Bruce Leeroy’, he originally earned a split decision win over Kyung Ho Kang before testing positive for marijuana post-fight.
It appears that he will retain his place in the UFC, but he’ll face a six month suspension and his victory has been altered to a ‘no contest’.
Caceres is now 3-3 (1nc) since entering the UFC via ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ reality show in 2011.
