Kimbo Slice, Ken Shamrock failed pre-fight drug tests

Dada 5000-Kimbo Slice

There were all sorts of issues with the Bellator 149 card in Houston last month, and now we can add two other problems to the list.

MMA Fighting reports that Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock failed pre-right drug tests and have been suspended accordingly.

Fighters submitted urine tests before their fights. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation is not releasing the information behind the substances that led to the positive tests.

Kimbo defeated Dada 5000 in a controversial ending. Dada 5000, real name Dhafir Harris, was fatigued and lost mostly because he ran out of energy. He was taken to the hospital after the fight and went into cardiac arrest, though he has since made a recovery. That fight has been overturned from a victory for Kimbo to a no-contest.

Shamrock, who also tested positive for steroids for a 2009 fight, lost to Royce Gracie by first-round TKO.
