Cole Province Fails WEC 42 Drug Test

Cole ProvinceWEC featherweight Cole Province, who was victorious two Sundays ago at WEC 42, has tested positive for the anabolic steroid Methasterone, FanHouse has learned.

Province's screen was the lone positive test at the Las Vegas event. Miguel Torres, Brian Bowles, Dominick Cruz, Takeya Mizugaki, Leonard Garcia, Shane Roller, Ed Ratcliff and Diego Nunes were selected for tests and passed.

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer told FanHouse on Monday that there is a possibility that Province's win may be changed to a no decision, and a fine and suspension will be determined after Province responds to a complaint to be sent out by the commission this week.

At WEC 42, Province (6-1) picked up his first WEC win by unanimously outpointing Brazilian Fredson Paixao. He was coming off another Torres-headlined WEC card in December where he dropped a three-rounder to Nunes.
