There will be no “March Badness” for Ken Shamrock.
The 45 year-old UFC Hall of Famer tested positive for three different types of steroids on Wednesday, drawing a yearlong suspension from the California State Athletic Commission and a $2500 fine.
Shamrock was scheduled to fight former WWE star Bobby Lashley on March 21 in Pensacola, Fla., on the Roy Jones Jr. boxing/MMA hybrid “March Badness.”
But according to Alexis Antonacci, press secretary for the Florida State Boxing Commission, which oversees Jones Jr.’s event, Shamrock will not be licensed to fight.
“We will honor the suspension,” Antonacci said of CSAC’s decision. “We honor all states suspensions.”
No word has been given yet on whether Shamrock will fight CSAC’s suspension, though Shamrock’s lawyer, Rod Donohoo, blamed the positive test on over the counter supplements, speaking to Sherdog.com.
