Joey Beltran is particularly bummed about his last fight with Igor Pokrajac. In a post-fight drug test, Beltran tested positive for steroids. The positive result remains a mystery to Beltran.
“I got that stupid positive test and to this day, I have no idea why,” said Beltran to HOV MMA. “If you look at my physique it’s pretty clear I have no idea what Nandrolone or Deca is. I dealt with that nine month suspension by becoming hungrier and working on my technique.”
It cost Beltran a win, which he really needed. He’s 1-4 in his recent outings and looks to change that against Fábio Maldonado.
Maldonado snapped his three fight losing streak this year. He was able to secure a decision from Roger Hollett.
They’re on the prelims of UFC Fight Night 29. It comes from Brazil’s Ginásio José Corrêa this Wednesday, October 9.
