Alex Caceres against Mackens SemerzierIt was revealed on Wednesday that UFC on Fuel TV 8 fighter Alex Caceres failed his drug test following his March 3 fight against Kyung Ho Kang, having tested positive for marijuana metabolites.

He received a six-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event, agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes, and must pass a drug test upon completing his suspension before he can return to competition.

Caceres made no attempt to diminish his responsibility for failing the drug test, and issued the following statement to MMAWeekly.com late Wednesday afternoon:

“I accept full responsibility for my actions and the consequences from those actions. I apologize to all that I have disappointed, including the UFC, my family, coaches, training partners and fans. I accept the sanctions from the UFC and I look forward to completing the necessary steps to getting back in the octagon following the suspension and assuring that this never happens again.”

Caceres initially scored a split decision victory over Kang, but the result of that bout has been changed to a no contest. The victory would have been Caceres’ third consecutive.
