He already got busted for roids once before.

Doesn't really matter what it's used for though, it's still cheating. He shouldn't have taken the fight if he couldn't make weight.

Dostranolone (Masteron) is often taken at the conclusion of a cycle. This leads me to believe that Bonnar was on a more powerful anabolic months prior to the fight, stopped early enough to get it out of his system, and then took Dostranolone. It also has benefits during a cycle because it is an aromatase inhibitor, meaning it blocks the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. It's also popular because it is usually out of your system relatively quickly. Apparently Bonnar just didn't quite time this right. To think that Bonnar has never used any of the more anabolic steroids but was familiar with Masteron is quite naive.

Chael back to being Chael again on OTR. " Dan and I are in cahoots. We're up to something. The question is what. "

Is anyone else having trouble with Bloody Elbow's new site on their phones? Always boots me back to my home screen. If you haven't don't worry about responding so that we don't clutter the thread, I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this.

How many of the UFC's HOF members have failed drug tests?

I don't think anyone in MMA is 100 percent clean. It's just the nature of the business, just like pro wrestling.

TMZ reporting Ronda Rousey is officially now in the UFC and that the January SF show is the last. Keep in mind, this is TMZ.

Ariel Helwani says it's true. Strikeforce is done.

Quote:
The Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion has fought her final fight for the promotion and is set to make her UFC debut in the near future, TMZ reported Thursday night. The Web site also reported that the recently announced Jan. 12 Strikeforce card in Oklahoma City will be the promotion's last.

MMAFighting.com confirmed with sources close to the promotion that both news items are in fact true and more information is expected to be released early next week.

I don't care about Rousey or women's MMA at all but I am excited about Melendez, Cormier, Barnett, etc fighting in the UFC.

How can Ronda be the "first female fighter in the UFC"? Is she going to shadow box for her first appearance on a card?

She's going to fight Barao in his first "interim" title defense.

Can anyone tell me why this guy is still allowed to fight in sanctioned fights anymore?

http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Sean-Salmon-14515

10 fights in two and a half years, lost all of them, hasnt even made it out of the first round in any of them, and has been TKO'd/KO'd six times in that time span.

Yikes. What does he do, just lie face down after touching gloves?

Not news or anything and I think these may have been posted before but this guy does some pretty good impersonations of certain fighters. Nothing overly funny, but some of the impersonations are pretty close. The Wandy and Overreem ones made me chuckle. His Helwani impression is bang on, I assume it's Ariel himself.

the best one is the Rampage - Evans one he did awhile ago. I can't find it right now, but it's freakin' hilarious.

Cyborg's docs advised her it would be way too risky for her to attempt to make 135, so I don't think we'll see that happening. I know I've mentioned this before, but if Rousey thinks she's so tough then she should take the fight at 140 or 145. Problem very easily solved.

Rumble cut an entire Brock Lesnar to fight at 170 and Cyborg can't cut 10 more pounds?

The description for this forum needs to be changed. It includes way too many promotions/other mma outlets that are closed/bought by the UFC. Should really read:

"UFC, the promotions they buy, Fedor the GOAT, and Andrei Arlovski vs Tim Sylvia."
