The plot surrounding Bellator 149 thickens as main event participants Kimbo Slice (against Dada 5000) & Ken Shamrock (against Royce Gracie) have failed their drug test.
Slice and Shamrock had banned substances in their system per the results of pre-fight drug tests. Bellator 149 took place Feb. 19 in Houston, Texas, multiple sources said.
Both men have been administratively suspended by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) pending an adjudication process, sources said. The official test result documents, showing the exact substances Slice and Shamrock tested positive for, have been withheld by the TDLR due to potential pending litigation. Athletes on the card had urine samples taken before their bouts. – Marc Raimondi
