If it's not injuries, it's drug tests.

Getting popped for poison pee-pee in mixed martial arts (MMA) is not exclusive to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), as Bellator MMA was recently put on blast by California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) after four of its fighters failed post-fight drug tests, according to

Keith Berry (def. Joe Pacheco): Elevated testosterone levels and marijuana
Nick Moghaddam (loss to Ray Sloane): Elevated testosterone levels
Rob Emerson (loss to Rafael Silva): Prescription drug Modafinil (Provigil)
Fernando Gonzalez (def. Karo Parisyan): Cannabinoids

All 22 fighters had urine samples tested by the UCLA Olympic lab, accredited by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Outside of Berry, whose win was overturned to a No Contest, CSAC has yet to announce disciplinary action for the offending fighters.

Stay tuned.
