Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight Riki Fukuda has been released from his UFC contract in the wake of a failed drug test at UFC on Fuel TV 8.

According to an official release, Fukuda tested positive for the banned stimulants phenylpropanolamine, norpseudoephedrine and ephedrine. Alex Caceres also failed his post-fight drug test at the March 3 event, testing positive for marijuana metabolites. Caceres has been suspended for six months and has agreed to attend rehabilitation classes. Upon completion of those classes, Caceres must pass a drug test before he can receive clearance to compete again.

UFC on Fuel TV 8 took place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and was headlined by a light heavyweight confrontation between Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann. All 22 fighters who competed on the card were tested for banned substances, with all tests coming back negative save for the aforementioned exceptions. As Japan has no athletic commission, the UFC acted as its own regulatory body and oversaw the testing.

Caceres edged Kyung Ho Kang in a controversial split decision victory on the UFC on Fuel TV 8 undercard. That result has now been changed to a no-contest, according to the official release. Fukuda relinquished a unanimous decision to Brad Tavares at the event and now exits the promotion with an Octagon record of two wins against three defeats.
