Edwin Dewees: Steroids result in 12-month suspension and fine

Edwin Dewees
From California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) Acting Assistant Executive Officer Bill Douglas:

"Edwin Dewees, who last competed on the Roy Englebrecht Promotions event sponsored by Affliction on July 19 in Anaheim, has tested positive for Nandrolone. His test level was finalized at 499 ng/mL. Independent tests were conducted by Quest Diagnostics for the "A" Sample and Laboratoire De Controle Du Dopage for the "B" Sample. He has been suspended for one year retroactive to the conclusion of the bout and fined $2,500."

Dewees -- a UFC veteran and participant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 4 -- was stopped by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira via first round technical knockout at Affliction: "Banned" last month. It marked the fifth loss in the last six fights for "Babyface." Nandrolone is the same banned substance that was detected in the system of Sean Sherk after his win in California over Hermes Franca at UFC 73: "Stacked" last year -- a finding he continues to dispute to this very day.
