Ken Shamrock tests positive for steroids

Mixed martial arts legend Ken Shamrock tested positive for three illegal anabolic steroids -- Norandrosterone, Noretiocholanolone and Stanozolol -- after his first round armbar submission win over Ross Clifton at War Gods: "Valentine's Eve Massacre," which took place at Selland Arena in Fresno, Calif., on Feb. 13, according to the California State Athletic Commission.

Shamrock has been suspended and fined $2,500 for the transgression. He has the right to appeal the finding in the future.

If the positive test is upheld it will more than likely erase the first win in four years for "The World’s Most Dangerous Man." In addition, it will throw a wrench into his upcoming fight against former WWE superstar turned MMA fighter, Bobby Lashley, in the Roy Jones Jr.-promoted hybrid MMA and boxing event from the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla., on March 21.

In fact, it could be another big money match down the tubes for the Lion's Den founder.

That's because Shamrock was supposed to collide with Internet street fighting sensation Kimbo Slice at Elite XC: "Heat" in October 2008. However, Shamrock pulled out of that scheduled match with Slice on fight night because of a cut sustained in warm-ups and has since been accused by younger brother Frank of cutting himself to get out of the fight.

Lashley is an absolute monster, boasting a a rare blend of size, freakish athleticism and blazing quickness. He’s going to be a handful for anybody in a fight, let alone a 45-year-old man who’s lost eight of his last 11 contests and hasn’t beaten a decent heavyweight since submitting Bas Rutten nearly 14 years ago.

Perhaps this is a blessing disguise after all.
