Former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko has been indefinitely suspended after failing his Bellator 133 drug test.

Shlemenko, according to a report from citing sources close to the fighter, failed his post-fight drug test after defeating Melvin Manhoef at Bellator 133 on Feb. 13 in Fresno, Calif. Those sources indicated that Shlemenko failed due to his test showing an unacceptably high ratio of testosterone-to-epitestosterone, which is generally indicative of exogenous testosterone use.

    Damn even the Russian dough boyis juicing. I always thought he took pride in his Fedor/like physique. Wasn’t Fedor just saying that only weak minded fighters use steroids.

    Just add Slemenko to the list of cheaters below

    As we slowly find out 80% of our fighters are on some sort of PED… for fucks sake L:-(

      OFF TOPIC: I am no Pettis fan but if anyone looked like they were juiced it was RDA. Also Pettis was nearly as ripped as he was in the Bendo and Melendez fights. Now that could mean he just didn’t train as hard or whatever but it was very noticeable

    Cyborg was gained all her man like looks and muscle mass from juicing and everyone knows it. Cyborg will always be remembered for being one of the most obvious steroid cheats in MMA history and its a whole different ball game when a women juices to fight natural women. Cybog was never blood tested in her career when she was juiced to the gills so we wil never know about her HGH use and every other steroid she obviously was on. There are pictures of cyborg at 21 where she doesn’t have that monster sized HGH chin. She actually was still a woman at 21
