The California State Athletic Commission sent out a press release stating that Strikeforce bantamweight champion Cristiane Justino Santos, better known as Cris Cyborg, was suspended by the commission due to failing a test for Stanazolol, an anabolic steroid also known as Winstrol.
According to the release, the test was taken on 12/16, which would have been the day before her championship title defense against Hiroko Yamanaka, which she won in 16 seconds.
Because of the test failure, Santos' victory has been overturned and the result of the match is a no contest.
Generally speaking, California steroid suspensions have been for one year duration, although the release by the commission did not state that specifically.
