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

More Support for the Hepatitis Theory

(“According to WebMD, I may also have shingles.”)

From MMA News via Fightlinker:

A source close to the situation spoke to’s Michael Moody on a condition of anonymity and explained that the blood tests came back right before Aleks and Buentello were scheduled to weigh in and that is why there was so much confusion around the stage and why the fighters did not weigh in. Gary Goodridge ended up stepping up on extremely short notice and filling in for the Russian heavyweight. The tests were positive for Hepatitis B which resulted in the CSAC cancelling the fight.

The stuff about it being transmitted usually by junkies and homos is only semi-correct. Any contact with bodily fluids or something containing bodily fluids infected by Hep B can give it to you. That's any sort of unprotected sexual contact, not only homo. Not totally sterilized tattoo or piercing equipment is another source. Or, if Aleks has any sort of BJ Penn's control issues, drinking human blood could give it to you as well...

You know that Stevia + H2o= Cold fusion. It'll cure almost anything and it was invented by an MMA fighter, Dan "The original Bad Boy" Quinn. Check out his YouTube clips. My life will never be the same.

If it's chronic than it's bad news.

Hepatitis B is not that serious as far as I know, it usually cures itself spontaneously, thus treatment is not usually required. It can develop cancer in the liver and nasty shit like that though.

What worries me the most is that... Hepatitis B is usually common for junkies and homosexuals, just saying...

Is that a European man purse around his neck in the pic?

Crap :( Does it mean that Aleks cannot fight now in the US? Does anyone know whether there's cure for it?
