The March 11 bout was set for Shark Fights 14 at the Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock Texas, has now been called off and Shark Fights have lost their co-headline bout. Irvin came to light after his December 2nd bout loss Jorge Oliveira at Tach Palace Fights 7 when he tested positive for epitrenbolone which is also known as trenbolone metabolite normally used on livestock for muscle growth and appetite. Irvin is no stranger to the roid scene after testing positive after his loss to Anderson Silva. He is now facing a year ban and a fine though all fighters who test positive for steroids will get a chance to appeal against the result. However, Houston would have had to pull out of the Shark Fights 14 fight through a training injury.
