Report: Melvin Guillard tests positive for cocaine

melvin guillard positive for cocaine
Motormouth UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard got popped for cocaine -- an illegal stimulant and banned substance -- after his 27-second first round submission loss to Joe Stevenson at UFC Fight Night 9 on April 5, according to FightNetwork.com.

Here's a snip:

"A post-fight urinalysis conducted for April 5 UFC Fight Night headliner Melvin Guillard has allegedly tested positive for cocaine metabolite, said the Nevada State Athletic Commission today – a first for a mixed martial arts athlete in the State."

According to the report, Guillard has 30 days to dispute the finding and will be temporarily suspended until he can explain his side of the story.

If the test turns out to be accurate, however, Guillard will most likely be suspended for a few months and be fined.

Not good news at all for the former The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 2 contestant who with a win would have put himself in title contention.

Now with the loss and subsequent cocaine incident it looks like his future in the 155-pound division took a serious blow.

No pun intended.
