    Melvin Guillard was fined AND suspended for 8 months, for having the same metabolite in his system.

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/melvin-guillard-suspended-for-8-months-by-nsac-2

    Guillard:
    -Fined $2,100
    -Suspended 8 months
    -Possible NC if he would have won the fight

    Jones submits self to rehab:
    -Fine $0
    -Suspension 0 days
    -Retains Win on record


    How is this justified? Anyone want to give it a try?

    Maybe because Guillard pissed hot on fight night?

    maybe because guillard was pinned immediately following his fight, rather than Jones who was pinned one month prior to his fight?

    Out of competition as opposed to in competition. Pretty simple and has been covered ad nauseam on here today.

    Why don't you actually read one of the several news articles out there before posting a thread about it.

    No, it's technically in competition if it's picked up in the post fight drug test. The random tests are considered out of competition. It's a simple distinction.

    If the NSAC can't administer the punishment for out-of-competition testing, THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE THEY TESTING THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?

    They can punish them for PEDs (Shael & Wandy for example).

    they do a full piss test, despite the list of banned substances being smaller out of competition compared to in competition.
