The man dubbed as “Baby Fedor” has been suspended by the California State Athletic Commission for one year due to a positive test for Stanozol.
Kirill Sidelnikov made an unsuccessful debut at January’s Affliction pay-per-view where he suffered a third round TKO to Paul Buentello. The 20-year old prodigy is an M-1 veteran who trains alongside WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko on The Imperial Team (formerly known as Russian Red Devil).
The CSAC sent out a press release today informing the press of his failed drug test and confirming the one-year suspension and $2,500 fine.
Sidelnikov, 5-3 overall in his MMA career, lost via TKO when he suffered facial cuts and was not allowed to continue the fight. His debut was highly anticipated but he did not hold up his end of the bargain as he seemed out of shape and quickly gassed early in the fight against the UFC veteran.
CSAC Assistant Executive Officer Bill Douglas explained that the mere presence of Stanozol in a fighter’s system constitutes a violation under the new procedures implemented recently by the CSAC.
