Bellator MMA will be returning to the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut in October and multiple fighters on the fight card have submitted out-of-competition drug test to the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulations including former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko.
TheMMAReport.com recently learned about the out-of-competition drug testing being ordered by the commission and Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulations Director Mike Mazzulli confirmed on Monday that Shlemenko, Liam McGeary, and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal have already submitted an out-of-competition drug test with the commission.
The results of the out-of-competition drug testing for those fighters have not come back at this time and are expected to be back shortly. Per Mazzulli, the entire Bellator 185 fight card will be subject to out-of-competition and in-competition drug testing.
Bellator 185 will take place on Friday, October 20 and will be headlined by the promotional debut of Gegard Mousasi as he will meet Shlemenko in a middleweight bout.
