The UFC has confirmed today that both Alex Caceres and Riki Fukuda failed drug tests following UFC on Fuel TV 8.

The 24 year old TUF veteran Caceres has received a six month suspension after testing positive for marijuana metabolites. ‘Bruce Leeroy’ recorded a split decision victory over Kyung Ho Kang at the March 3rd event; however, that result will now be re-classified as a no contest in light of Caceres’ positive test.

Meanwhile Fukuda, who tested positive for Norpseudoephedrine and Phenylpropanolamine, has been released by the organization.

Although the failed drug screening undoubtedly expedited Fukuda’s release, the 32 year old middleweight was already on the brink, having posted an overall UFC record of 2-2 before dropping his last outing against Brad Tavares.
