Nakamura and Smith Receive Extensions

The California State Athletic Commission granted continuances to both Kazuhiro Nakamura and Adam Smith in their appeals of positive tests for drugs of abuse and anabolic agents.

No word on when the two fighters will have to appear in front of the commission again.

Nakamura tested positive following post-fight tests for UFC 76 in September. Nakamura currently faces a $500 fine and a three-month suspension.

Smith tested positive for two different kinds of steroids, Nandrolone and Stanozolol, as well as marijuana and cocaine during post-fight drug tests following Strikeforce’s event at the Playboy Mansion on September 29th. Smith is currently being fined $4000 and may be suspended for close to two years.
