A statement released today by the California State Athletic Commision noted, “Carter Williams, who last competed for Strikeforce/EliteXC on June 22, 2007 in San Jose, has tested positive for Cocaine. He has been fined $1,000. His suspension began at the conclusion of his bout on June 22, 2007 and will run through December 19, 2007.”
Williams is the second mixed martial artist in as many days that has been suspended by the CSAC. It was announced yesterday that Jorge Ortiz tested positive for Nandrolone Metabolite, the same anabolic steroid that Royce Gracie recently tested positive for. Ortiz was fined the current California maximum of $2,500 and suspended for 365 days.
