Bellator’s Doug Marshall suspended by Pennsylvania commission following failed test for banned substance

Doug Rhino Marshall
The news coming out of Pennsylvania is yet another blow to Bellator Season 8 middleweight tournament winner Doug Marshall. Not only did he lose to Alexander Schlemenko and break his hand but now he has been suspended following a test for an undisclosed banned substance.

News outlets reported yesterday that Marshall has been hit with a suspension that should expire on February 7th and “The Rhino” will have to retake the failed test although no comment has been made by commission officials. ¬†MMAJunkie.com reports that Marshall was granted a¬†therapeutic-use exemption for testosterone-replacement therapy prior to Bellator 98 but Marshall ultimately withdrew from that fight with a broken hand.

It was a good run to the top for Marshall as he won two fights in the Season 8 tournament with first round knockouts. The loss to champ Schlemenko was his first under the Bellator banner. He is a former WEC champion and was on a four fight winning streak prior to Bellator 109.
