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

Leonard Garcia Was Only Holding It for a Friend

(A courtroom victory would be a thousand times sweeter.)

In an e-mail exchange with MMAJunkie, Leonard Garcia claimed his innocence regarding his recent drug trafficking arrest, and implied that the charge is based only on groundless hearsay:

“I am fighting it because there is nothing but someone saying I was involved,” said Garcia, who was released from jail on a reconnaissance bond and will return to court on May 5. “I hope to have a smile on my face after this is said and done, but I feel like I’m in a fight for my life…

“I’d like to tell my fans to stick with me and pray that the liar in this case tells the truth,” Garcia said. “I want to get back to doing what I do best: fighting for the fans…

Your past is exactly that. My life has a bright future, and people that don’t have that don’t want me to have one either. May God forgive them.”

On his MySpace page, Garcia adds the following:

“This is leonard, I want to ask all my fans and supporters to keep me in their prayers. Know that I can clear my name and continue to give fans the fights they deserve to watch. And know that I am innocent of a crime that I’m being accused of from 3 years ago…I will get through this mess and make everyone proud of me as I have done before.”

Three years ago, eh? Too bad there’s no statute of limitations on filling two dozen condoms with cocaine, inserting them into your body cavity, then taking a train from El Paso to Lubbock. We’re kidding of course — we actually have no idea what Garcia used to transport the coke.

Yeah that excuse stopped working when I was about 12 when even I realized how retardedly lame of an excuse it is. I mean "HOLDING IT FOR A FRIEND" what a fucking joke!!!

Especially when he calls these people all liars. So he was "HOLDING" a lifetime sentence's worth of drugs for a "liar".... I mean friend.

The investigation was ongoing for 3 is not like he just happened to be there for one moment.....the time the raid was and was "holding for a friend" a bunch of coke.

Good luck see ya in 50
