Bellator 127, which took place on October 3rd, 2014 at Southern California’s Pechanga Resort and Casino, saw four Bellator fighters fail their post-fight drug tests under the California State Athletic Commission. All 22 fighters that took part in Bellator 127 were drug tested post-fight. The four fighters who tested positive for banned substances are:
Keith Berry – Elevated testosterone levels, marijuana.
Nick Moghaddam – Elevated testosterone levels, marijuana.
Rob Emerson – Designer performance enhancer (Modafinil)
Fernando Gonzalez – Marijuana
Bellator president Scott Coker issued the following statement on the issue:
“I want to make very clear that under new management, Bellator will simply not stand for performance enhancing drugs inside our cage. We fully support the California State Athletic Commission in their process, and standby any disciplinary action handed out by Commissioner Andy Foster and the CSAC. Fans, media and our athletes need to have a clear understanding that drug use will simply not be tolerated by Bellator.”
