Bellator welterweight Herman Terrado has been suspended nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for testing positive for a banned substance following Bellator 115 in April.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed down the suspension on Tuesday and he was also fined $1,000, which is 30 percent of the purse he received for his fight at Bellator 115.
In addition, the commission has changed the result of his fight against Justin Baesman to a no-decision and he will have to supply a drug test before coming off suspension.
The post fight drug test that Terrado submitted to the NSAC reflected the presence of Drostanolone, and/or Drostanolone Metabolites, which is a prohibited anabolic agent. He had the chance to give his side of the story at today’s meeting, but that did not take place.
Terrado is the third known positive drug test in Bellator’s five year history. The two other positive drug test in Bellator’s history took place last year as a preliminary card fighter tested positive for marijuana at Bellator 96 and Doug Marshall tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone at Bellator 109. Marshall is still currently under suspension and can come off suspension in August.
