Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Josh Barnett’s Second Sample Also Positive for Drostanolone

(In the immortal words of Bob Seger: "Shake down, break down, take down / blah blah blah-blah blah-blah something something blah / break down, take down / you’re busted." Photo courtesy of CombatLifestyle.)

From yesterday’s deconstruction of Josh Barnett‘s airtight steroid defense:

“In the meantime, Mr. Barnett has yet to learn of the results of the B sample testing and he has not received any of the documentation that provides further details of the alleged positive sample despite numerous requests.”

Are you sitting down, guys? Because we have some unfortunate and somewhat unsurprising news. (via Fightlinker) is reporting that Barnett’s ‘B’ sample, which is used to double-check the veracity of the initial sample, just came back positive for 2a-methyl-5a-androstan-3a-ol-17-one — or in normal-person language, a metabolite of Drostanolone, the same steroid he popped for last week.

Well, at least he still has that "unintentional ingestion" angle to hang his reputation on. But at this point, it’ll be a steep uphill climb to convince the State of California — and us, the fans — that he’s anything other than a filthy cheater. Good luck, Babyface…

In a related story, I’ll be going on SIRIUS Fight Club (Sirius channel 127, or 104 for XM subscribers) at 6 p.m. ET today to chat about our steroid bust timeline. Tune in if you can…

Thanks Josh, you big dickhead. Enjoy the freakshow circuit because that's the only action you'll get now.

Was this photo taken after somebody asked Josh what happened to Affliction and his MMA career? Funny how the two guys scheduled to fight in the main event of Affliction's cancelled show are now the most hated fighters in the sport.

Maybe the "Baby Fat Assasin" can take those big floppy titties and become the next guest ring girl. He better get on the estrogen blocker before he gets some serious bitch tits.

This inbred pile of assbutter is more than likely going to pull the "I got it at GNC, and I thought it was kosher." defense like all the COWARDS like him who were caught doping in MMA. Christ, at least Floyd Landis had a funny defense when he was caught with elevated testosterone levels in the Tour de France. He blamed it on drinking a shitload of Jack Daniels. If Barnett was anything more than the cowardly little bitch he is, he would have 'fessed up a long fucking time ago.

No, this is going to be really fucking bad for any attempt Juicy Tits Barnett may make in re-entering anything resembling legitimate MMA. Let him fight in all the sideshow freak fests in Japan or wherever the fuck he wants to. I damn well hope Juicy Tits Barnett is reading what people have to say about him online.

For fucking up a major international MMA event; for making your opponent look like a goddamned fool for saying you were his "friend;" and for making MMA look bad when even casual fans are watching - DIE. Cut with the vein while you're in a nice hot tub, and fucking die like the goddamned lying cowardly bitch you are.

Josh Barnett is such a douchebag that he can't even take steroids properly. I mean, what the fuck is the point of taking steroids if you are still going to be a soft pudgy bitch? Jesus, Josh...maybe you can go over to Japan and take a shitload of steroids and actually look the part. Imagine how pudgy he would look if he didn't take any steroids at all. Seems to me his training regimen is non-existent. Stupid fucking pudgy bastard.

@ Give It Up: Nah, probably 10 minutes or less this time...

@ Koeikan: Yeah, I know...but Josh, like many others before him, might try to say that he took legal supplements that showed up as anabolic steroids in his urine. (See Step 1 in the first link on this page).

Ingest: means to be consumed either as a food or liquid.

Even that doesn't cover him... Injection != Ingestion.

Yep this is a shocker! To be honest I'm actually kinda of happy this happened, look at all the awesome fights (besides Fedor) we have to look forward to.....and fighters getting better contracts in better orgainizations (besides Fedor).

Thanks Josh!!
