Red Devil Sport Club fighter Kiril Sidelnikov, nicknamed “Baby Fedor” for his work with Fedor Emelianenko, was on Tuesday suspended by the California State Athletic Commission after testing positive for Stanozolol.

Bill Douglas, Assistant Executive Officer of the California State Athletic Commission, informed the media of the result.

Sidelnikov last completed at Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning” on Jan. 24 in Anaheim, Calif., losing a lopsided, bloody TKO loss to American Kickboxing heavyweight Paul Buentello.

The Russian is retroactive to the fight and runs through Jan. 18, 2010. He is also fined $2,500.

“The mere presence of Stanozolol in the system constitutes a violation under the new testing procedures for CSAC,” said Douglas.

Wesley “Cabbage” Correira, who bailed on his recent fight in Fresno at the Ken Shamrock-promoted “War Gods,” got a post-event present he probably didn’t want.

The UFC and Rumble on the Rock veteran’s pre-fight drug test came back positive for marijuana, registering a staggering 700 ng/mL of the drug in his system. As Douglas earlier told MMAInsider, “anything above 50 ng/mL is a truely active user.”

Correira’s suspension is retroactive to the missed fight and runs until Aug. 12, 2009. He is also fined $1,000.

Editor’s Note: The original report stated Sidelnikov’s loss to Buentello as a decision, when in fact it was a TKO (Doctor Stoppage) loss. The article was corrected at 2:20 PST.
