Alexandre Nogueira Tests Positive for Boldenone

By Staff Jul 8, 2008
Alexandre Franca Nogueira (Pictures) has tested positive for the anabolic steroid Boldenone, the California State Athletic Commission said Monday in a statement.

Nogueira, known as "Pequeno," last competed June 1 in Sacramento at WEC 34. Jose Aldo (Pictures) stopped him in the second round of what some saw as an upset considering Nogueira's lengthy Shooto title reign in Japan.

Nogueira was fined $2,500, and his suspension will run through May 31, 2009. The CSAC said the fighter's "A" sample was tested at Quest Diagnostics and his "B" sample was tested at Laboratoire de Controle du Dopage in Laval, Quebec, Canada, which the commission said is a WADA-certified test facility.
