There was one positive test, which was Mr. Cole Province’s test. The test came back positive for Methasterone metabolite, a designer steroid that was banned back in 2005. Cole Province defeated Fredson Paixao via unanimous decision at the event but is now under temporary suspension until a formal hearing. He is facing a fine and a suspension, and his win over Paixao may also be overturned.
