NSAC Coming Down Hard On Drug Cheaters!

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today approved a “no tolerance” policy against fighters who fail tests for banned substances. Beginning September 1, penalties for steroid use will be severe. Suspensions will be three years, plus a hefty fine. Repeat offenders will receive a four year ban. Three strikes is a lifetime ban. Fines range from 50% to 100% of the athlete’s purse. Users of marijuana, diuretics or other substances face 18 month to two year suspensions and a fine of 30-40% of their purse for first offenders. Also results of fights will now be changed to a loss rather than a no-decision after a failed test. Fighters who don’t pay their fines will be suspended indefinitely, with the suspension recognized in all 50 states.
