UFC 76: Kazuhiro Nakamura fails CSAC drug test

Kazuhiro NakamuraKazuhiro Nakamura tested positive for marijuana in the aftermath of his unanimous decision loss to Ryoto Machida at UFC 76: "Knockout" over the weekend, according to the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

Perhaps that explains all the bizarre pre-fight antics.

The Japanese PRIDE FC veteran -- who was making his Octagon debut -- was fined $500 and suspended for three months.

According to the CSAC report the other 17 fighters in action at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., all tested negative for drugs of abuse such as marijuana, heroin, etc.

Test results for anabolic and masking agents, however, are still pending.
