Welterweight Anthony Torres tested positive for the anabolic steroid Boldenone following his first round technical knockout loss to Jess Liaudin at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion" on September 8, according to Yahoo!Sports.

The former contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) has since been released from his contract.

This news is a bit delayed because UFC 75 took place in London, England, where there is no athletic commission to administer screening for banned substances in mixed martial arts competitions.

In fact, UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Mark Ratner, was charged with the task of testing the fighters on the card.

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Dan Henderson, Dennis Siver, Michael Bisping, Terry Etim, Houston Alexander and Gleison Tibau were also among those who were tested prior to the event at the O2 Arena. Torres is the only one who came up dirty.

More recently Kazuhiro Nakamura tested positive for marijuana after his loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC 76: "Knockout." The Japanese fighter plans to appeal the finding before the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).
