Adam Smith, who was recently suspended and fined by the California State Athletic Commission for testing positive for both cocaine and marijuana, has now additionally tested positive for anabolic agents with metabolites for both Nandrolone and Stanozolol according to CSAC representative Bill Douglas.
The drug test failures stem from testing surrounding his losing effort against Dewey Cooper at the Strikeforce at the Mansion event held on Sept. 29 in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Douglas revealed that Smith is “the first athlete in the State of California to test positive for anabolic agents and drugs of abuse at the same time.”
Smith’s previous suspension was from the conclusion of the bout on Sept. 29, 2007 through June 25, 2008 with a fine of $1,500.
His positive test for anabolic agents represents a second separate violation, which earned him a separate set of repercussions. He now will serve an additional suspension from June 26, 2008 through the end of his licensing year, which is Sept. 27, 2008. He has also been assessed an additional 271 days to complete the second suspension (totaling 365 days), which begins when he reapplies for licensure in California. A fine of $2,500 was assessed for the anabolic agents test failure.
The total time of suspension for Smith’s combined infractions is now 21 months with fines totaling $4,000.
Smith’s pay for his fight against Cooper, as reported by Strikeforce to the CSAC, was $500.
All of the drug test results for Strikeforce at the Mansion are now complete. Aside from Smith and Bill Mahood, who tested positive for an anabolic agent, all the other competitors on the fight card returned clean results.
