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

[VIDEO] Rampage Jackson, Eddie Alvarez, + More React to Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman’s Positive UFC 153 Tests

(If this man does not strike you as the kind of person who spends most of his free time getting stoned, playing Xbox, and waxing poetic about the flaws of Jiu-Jitsu, then we don’t know who does.) 

When we first heard word that Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman failed their UFC 153 drug tests — for Drostanolone and Marijuana respectively — we couldn’t help but reflect on the timeless words of George W. Bush when he stated, “Fool me once…..shame on………..shame on you. Fool me, I can’t get fooled again.” Unfortunately for Bonnar and Herman, they failed to fool the piss test even once while in the UFC (at least to our knowledge) and have felt the unforgiving wrath of the Interwebs as a result of their insolence. Hearts were broken. Tears were shed. Butts were hurt.

And in an effort to gauge their fellow fighters feelings on the issue, FightHubTv recently interviewed such fighters as Travis Browne, Eddie Alvarez, and Tyrone Spong to get some perspective on the issue. Also, Rampage Jackson threw in his two cents and actually managed to do so without turning the interview into another “Dear Diary” entry aimed at the UFC. Good for him.

Video below.

Go figure, the general sentiment seems to be that penalizing a fighter for smoking marijuana is overkill. That being said, no one is exactly quick to forgive a so-called professional like Herman who has tested positive for marijuana twice now in just a four fight UFC career.

When asked on the issue of Mary J, Tyrone Spong can only nonchalantly remind us that “I’m from Amsterdam,” with a smile. Point taken, Tyrone. Eddie Alvarez, on the other hand, couldn’t give a fuck if your were huffing cat piss and lighting off fire crackers in your ass before you fought him, because it probably wouldn’t improve your chances anyway.

Although the general public reaction to Bonnar’s second failed test has been that he was simply going honey badger for his final UFC fight, you have to imagine that “The American Psycho” suffered some undisclosed injury in training that forced him to hit the juice. Why else would he cheapen the value of the final fight of his career, especially when he asked for such a big fight to begin with? If it turns out that Bonnar was just juicing for the hell of it, it will really call into question what exactly he was thinking heading into UFC 153.

Look at me, trying to to understand the mind of this man. It’s like asking your dog why he chases his own tail. Or why your favorite prostitute will never say “I love you” back.

Am I the only one that doesn't give 2 shits that a mediocre fighter on his way out the door whos already a known juicer juiced for a meaningless fight against a guy he knew was gonna crush him? I could give a shit less.. Enjoy your retirement Bonnar, nobody gives a shit if you juiced a lil, and if they do they shouldn't.

@ant, the lack of a commission probably made Bonnard feel safer about it, except he also risked part of his purse if the UFC holds to history.

Bonnar juiced for two reasons:
1) it was his last fight and would not effect his career in any real negative way
2) if he SOME HOW were to beat Anderson, the loss could be throw out or in the very least discounted by Dana and the rest of the UFC. Call it a little company insurance for their #1 PPV draw.

Why is it so mind boggling that Bonnar could have just said "fuck it, it's my last fight, I'm fighting a guy that everyone knows is going to take me to school, I might as well give myself every advantage I can get.. I mean what're they gonna do? Suspend a retired fighter? lol"

My favorite prostitute always says "I love you" back. That's why I married her!

I never say "I love you" to my favorite prostitute, I just get turned on by staring deeply into her dead eyes and her empty soul. No, really, she's actually dead.
