Steroids in MMA

“Cyborg” Santos Year-Long Suspension Upheld by CSAC

Cris “Cyborg” Santos tested positive for banned substances after her December 17th fight last year in California and was subsequently suspended for one year by the state’s athletic commission. Yesterday an appeal from the former 145 pound champion to reduce her suspension to six months was rejected by the California commission.

MMA Weekly reports that Santos’ team was trying to get clearance to fight on a coming StrikeForce card. ”Santos’ appeal was asking for the commission to reduce her sentence from one year down to six months. According to her lawyer, Santos was up for a potential fight on an upcoming Strikeforce show in “late June/early July’ in San Diego,” they wrote.

Ultimately, the CSAC voted unanimously to uphold “Cyborg’s” one year suspension. If things stay that way, she will only be able to re-apply for for a license until December 17th, 2012. It’s been a rough year for MMA’s top female fighter. First she was popped for steroids after her 16 second execution of Hiroko Yamanaka (a win that was then turned to a “No Contest”), and then she announced that her and her husband, the other “Cyborg,” were getting divorced.

Since it might be a long time till you Chute Boxe fans get to see her in action again, we’re putting some highlights of her beating up hapless women (and Tito Ortiz) below for you to enjoy:

Drano, I'm willing to bet that Rhonda would dump you on your head and arm bar you with ease. You'd just have to hope that there wasn't a strap-on near by because things could real ugly for you then if she wanted...I'm talking Gene LeBell making Steven Segal shit himself, ugly

looking back on that footage now, Im pretty sure Cyborg was paid extra to make that fight last a full round. She owned Gina and had could have KO'd her one of the many times she turned her back in the fight. Gina was nothing more than a pretty face and a nice piece of ass. Cyborg vs Rousey seems like a better match up. Cyborg will put hands on Rousey. Maybe make her fight Meisha Tate as a tune up fight for the #1 contendership

Wellllll Let's not get stupid and say she "beat up Tito", sh grappled with him, managed to get back Tito damn sure let her back up when she did the right things.
Then Tito got her in a triangle and she did slowly, and with ZERO resistance...pick tito off the ground about a foot off the ground....stumbled forward, and then tapped.
Now people clapped, and Tito mentioned how strong she was, but in NO way was He ever close to getting "beat".
I mean I am to old and have no true skills, and I could hold her down, and wrestle fuck her. If she started throwing on subs.....well then yeah she could beat me, but let's NOT get crazy here.
I would like Rhonda Rousey to get me in one of her armbars, I would show her the difference between men and women, I would be MUCH stronger than her, and I could get out of it.....and I would pound on her....then I would pound that pussy as well just to show her :)
