Only if an athlete tests positive for more than 150 ng/ml of cannabis in a sample collected in-competition will that athlete be sanctioned by the regulatory body. Things are different in Illinois, though. The Illinois State Athletic Commission (ISAC) has a zero-tolerance policy for banned substances, including marijuana. There is no such threshold for cannabis, so if a fighter tests positive for even a small amount of the drug he or she can be suspended, fined and possibly have a win overturned. Bellator 198 is also affected, wonder who will pop and who won't, hopefully the fighters were warned before hand so they could have cut it out long before the fight Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
