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

Update: Feijao Tested Positive for Stanozolol, Win Over Mike Kyle Changed to No-Contest

(“Just gimme the ‘roids and pass the ‘lol, bussanothaneedle’a'zo…”)

Following Rafael Cavalcante‘s $2,500 fine and one-year suspension for testing positive for a banned substance, the California State Athletic Commission has confirmed that “Feijao” pissed hot for stanozolol, the anabolic steroid of choice for such MMA fighters as Tim Sylvia, Chris Leben, Ken Shamrock and Cris Cyborg.¬†As a result, Cavalcante’s May 19th submission win over Mike Kyle has been overturned to a no-contest.

Cavalcante and his management team have already filed an appeal with the CSAC, and are awaiting a hearing date.

According to our handy guide to this sort of thing, the four failed drug tests so far this year (Cyborg, Lawal, Overeem, Cavalcante) mean that 2012 has already seen as many failed drug tests in MMA as 2010 and 2011 combined. At the current rate, 2012 will be the second most drug-fueled year in the sport’s modern history after 2007, in which a whopping 14 fighters tested positive for steroids.

This much money involved, well over 50% are using in mma. Even in BJJ comps people r using, and they are not making money..........think about it.

People need to look good and hard at the physiques of these fighters. Personally, I think you can pick most of them out easily just by sight. This is based on years of working out, being around other than train and moderate personal research on steroids.

I bet it's because of those new Pez Roid dispensers I see at Wal-Mart all the time.
