Melvin Guillard Fined and Suspended by Kansas Commission for Banned Non-PED Bellator fighter Melvin Guillard was suspended by the Kansas Athletic Commission on Friday for a positive drug test result for an unidentified non-performance-enhancing substance. The KAC suspended Guillard for one year and fined him $10,000. It also overturned his Bellator 159 win over David Rickels, changing it to a “no contest.” He originally knocked Rickels out a little over two minutes into their fight on July 22 in Mulvane, Kan. The KAC learned of the results Aug. 3, and Guillard’s suspension will be applied retroactively to July 22.  All fighters licensed by the KAC are subject to random drug testing and must follow the world anti-doping (WADA) code. TRENDING >   There are 75,000 Reasons Nick Diaz Can’t Fight in Nevada Yet “The first and foremost job of the Kansas Athletic Commission is to protect the health and welfare of the fighters we are charged with regulating” said Adam Roorbach, head of the Kansas Athletic Commission.  “Banned substances have no place in the world of combat sports, and their usage will not be allowed in the state of Kansas.” The suspension and overturning of the result is a huge blow to Guillard, who went into the Rickels fight on a three-fight losing skid
