Armando Garcia has resigned as executive director of the California
State Athletic Commission. Acceptance of Garcia's resignation is set as
an agenda item at the next CSAC meeting, scheduled for Nov. 18 in Los
Angeles.The commission also will appoint an interim executive
director and move to assemble a search committee for a permanent
replacement at the meeting.After a career as a boxing referee
and judge, Garcia assumed the executive director position in 2005.
During his tenure California transformed into a hotbed of professional
MMA events, hosting major UFC, Strikeforce and EliteXC shows.The
commission also implemented stringent drug-testing procedures, which --
following a number of positive tests -- resulted in the suspensions of
several high-profile fighters, including Royce Gracie, Sean Sherk, Phil
Baroni and Antonio Silva.During the Sherk case, questions were
raised about the CSAC's oversight of drug-test samples. The former UFC
lightweight champion, who maintained his innocence throughout the case,
blasted the commission for what he believed were mistakes by the
commission-appointed laboratory that compromised the integrity of his
sample.Since the Sherk case, the commission has made changes to
its drug-testing program and now conducts analysis of drug tests in
World Anti-Doping Agency-certified facilities only.
