The Californa State Athletic Commission is reporting that Jorge Ortiz (14-3) tested positive for Nandrolone Metabolite after his fight on June 8th at Total Combat 21 in San Diego, California. Ortiz has been slapped with a hefty suspension and a $2,500 fine.
“He has been fined $2,500. His suspension period runs from the conclusion of his bout on June 8, 2007 through the remainder of his licensing year, which is March 19, 2008. Furthermore, he has been assessed an additional 80 days in order to fulfill the terms of his suspension (365 total days). The additional days will be added at the beginning of his next licensing year when he reapplies.”
Nandrolone is the same anabolic agent that Royce Gracie recently tested positive for.
