Highly-touted UFC heavyweight contender Shane Carwin was named Friday alongside six other athletes in federal court as a group of twenty-two individuals who obtained performance enhancing drugs from Applied Pharmacy Services, an Alabama enterprise associated with the illegal distribution of anabolic steroids around the nation.
Carwin’s association with the operation was reported by a local Alabama online news outlet. The 12-1 Mixed Martial Artist was named in court documents as having received steroids at some point between April 2004 and August 2006 according to order-forms initialed by one of the recently-sentenced doctors linked to APS.
The 6’4″ power-packing knockout-specialist made his professional MMA debut in October 2005 and participated in a total of five fights during the span in question. No official comment has been released from Carwin’s camp in regards to his alleged involvement in the case.
