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

Kiril Sidelnikov, Of All People, Tests Positive for Steroids

(Yeah, the doughy dude on the left. Crazy. Photo courtesy of Esther Lin.)

Bad news via MMA Mania:

Kirill Sidelnikov, who last competed at Affliction’s Day of Reckoning event on January 24, has been suspended for testing positive for Stanozolol. The suspension period is retroactive to the conclusion of the bout on January 24 and runs through January 18, 2010. He has been fined $2,500. The mere presence of Stanozolol in the system constitutes a violation under the new testing procedures for CSAC.

You may remember Sidelnikov as "Baby Fedor," the trusted Emelianenko training partner who went into a heavyweight match against Paul Buentello at Day of Reckoning looking like he should be competing at middleweight, and got raped. Between his performance and his appearance, he’d be the last guy we’d suspect of having a chemical advantage. And yet he pissed dirty for a synthetic anabolic steroid derived from testosterone. This world is full of surprises.

Dollars to donuts he’ll be using Tim Sylvia‘s patented "I was only using it to trim my physique" defense, which will probably be good enough for him to compete again in Russian MMA leagues, where they don’t even care that Aleksander Emelianenko is competing with tainted blood. But from our view, this might cast some suspicion on Fedor himself. The WAMMA champ and his protege trained together every day — might he have been aware that Sidelnikov was cutting corners?

And powerlifting, which is where track guys picked it up.

I love it how everyone on here thinks steroids were invented in the 80s. People were cheating with steroids in track in field back in the 50s, in America, no less.

haha at the little debbie cakes comment. I can just picture the brute Russians huddled around a blender, making a purée of little debbie cakes and taking turns to inject it into each others corn holes.

fedors a pimp and everyone dissing him on this page are obviously jealous that they're sitting under his ass while he's taking a fat shit all over your favorite fighters. Yes I said it. And yes, im on LSD.

the asshole who nicknamed him 'baby fedor' should be hung from the balls.

I just realized we never had a good rhyming nickname for Kiril...

Kiril "[I don't even know how to say his last name!]" Sidelnikov

Someone find a good one here.

Morons... All professional atheletes juice, the good ones just dont get caught
PoleVault1543- March 3, 2009 at 1:14 pm
Hey Fedor was tested at the same time so don't be throwing him under the bus. This kid is just young and stupid and was probably told winstrol doesn't show up on tests.
Fedor Is A Juicer- March 3, 2009 at 1:11 pm
Anyone see Bigger, Stronger, Faster? In it they showed that the Americans only learned about steroids after a trainer on the Russian Olympic team got drunk one night and told all. From there, the yanks then created a much more powerful version. So really, technically speaking. The Russians are the ones to blame for all the roid abuse in sports. I guess all Fedor's victories in Pride don't mean shit now there is indisputable proof that Fedor and his camp are cheats??
RickyRobbie- March 3, 2009 at 12:58 pm
The russians are experts when it comes to Steroids. They did it back in the olympics and probably the soccerteam as well in the Euro 08.

Andrei Arlovski should be made WAMMA heavyweight champion!! He should fight Tim "How taste Andrei's pee pee" Sylvia to determine who is best fighter in AFFLICTION not on the juice!!

"But from our view, this might cast some suspicion on Fedor himself. The WAMMA champ and his protege trained together every day — might he have been aware that Sidelnikov was cutting corners?"

Cage Potato don't turn into the gossiping bitches at ESPN. What do you think, that every day they train together Kirill asks Fedor, "Hey Fedy, how taste my pee pee?"

And then Fedor after gurgling a few pints says, "Taste like Stanozolol much."

baby fedor looks so sad in that picture. he looks like a child. it was hard watching him take that beating. there's gotta be some footage of fedor watching in the back shaking his head.
