Strikeforce “Tate vs. Rousey” Medical Suspensions and Drug Test Results

Miesha TateThe Ohio Athletic Commission has released the medical suspensions and drug test findings from Saturday night’s Strikeforce: “Tate vs. Rousey.”

Leading the medical suspensions were Miesha Tate (elbow), Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (broken hand), Roger Bowling (possible broken hand), and Conor Heun (possible broken hand), all of which were suspended indefinitely until cleared by a doctor.

Four fighters were randomly tested for performance enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse from Saturday’s card as well. The OAC reported that all of the participants passed.

However, late-replacement Bristol Marunde’s tests are pending due to being granted a therapeutic use exemption(TUE) for testosterone. Marunde was not a part of the random screening but must submit to increased testing due to his TUE.

Full Medical Suspensions (all fighters suspended seven days):

  • Miesha Tate – suspended indefinitely (elbow)
  • Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza – suspended indefinitely (broken hand)
  • Roger Bowling – suspended indefinitely (possible broken hand)
  • Conor Heun – suspended indefinitely (possible broken hand)
  • Kazuo Misaki – suspended 45 days (facial laceration)
  • Alexis Davis – suspended 30 days (facial laceration)
  • Pat Healy – suspended 30 days (head laceration)
  • Brandon Saling – suspended 30 days (precautionary reasons)
