No word on the GSP ruling yet but...

NSAC stripped Karo of his win over Kim, fined 40% of his purse, and suspended 9 months after testing positive for painkillers. 8-o

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

That's rough. 40% is a lot and 9 month is a long time. He probably deserved to be suspended, but ouch.

At least it removes the Loss, which he didn't deserve, from Kim's record.

On Sherdog they are saying the 40% equals 32K. That is one heck of a fine (relative to what these guys make). :-o

Yeah that is very hefty, add the nine month suspension and his wallet has really taken a hit. !+)

The UFC does not play. 8-o

It would probably be a lot less if UFC handled the fines. The athletic commission does it (in this case Nevada/NSAC).

wow, for painkillers? That seems harsh given the beating these guys give each other, it doesn't surprise me that someone is popping them without a script. Not like it's roids or coke...

Is that what it is? This might sound silly but I thought some fighters would take pain killers to gain an unfair advantage during a fight. No pain no tap? :-?

I dunno...when you're in a submission hold one of these guys is putting you in, ready to snap a limb or your neck off, I don't think a couple percs is going to make much of a difference, but maybe that's how they look at it. Just seems weird cause you think half the guys would have legal scripts considering the pounding they take and the injuries they suffer.
