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

Vinicius de Queiroz May Have the Best Excuse for a Positive Steroid Test Ever

("Wow! Those pills from Broughton Nutrition really made me bigger stronger and faster. I can’t believe I won the contest.")

Besides the handful who admit to their wrongdoing, when most fighters get popped for using PED’s, they typically plead ignorance.

"I don’t know how I tested positive. It could have been from using the sauna at the gym."

Chuteboxe fighter Vinicius de Queiroz, who tested for positive for the steroid Stanozolol following his UFC 120 loss to Rob Broughton and was subsequently dropped by the promotion tells Tatame that he didn’t knowingly ingest anything illegal, but surmises that he may have unwittingly taken the drug.

“I was caught by surprise with this doping thing, I’d never use something that could ruin my career, something that could bring me any kind of problems… I won some imported supplements and I used it, and there were some prescribed medicines too," Vinicius said before trying to explain awayhis guilt by feebly pointing out that Stanozolol is "used to lose weight, something that would be useless for a heavyweight who would have a disadvantage in confronting a bigger athlete."


Saying that anabolic steroids are primarily used for cutting weight is like saying alcohol is primarily used by fat chicks to get laid. Sure it’s one of the things they’re used for, but it isn’t the primary use.

Queiroz went on to explain that he is so oblivious to PED’s, he had to ask his coach what they were.

“For what I’ve heard, the quantity of this substance on my test was very small, and my coach said that, if I really had used it to have some kind of advantage on the fights, I’d have to take much more than that, so it wouldn’t change anything. I don’t have a single reason why to use it, this is a drug for you to lose weight and get stone, and I don’t have any reasons to lose weight and fight a huge guy”, he explained.

I guess his coach, who seems suspiciously educated on the chemistry of steroids didn’t explain to "Spartan" that when a steroid user cycles off the drug, the levels in the blood drop while the effects of its use remain.

In his defense, it isn’t like Chuteboxe fighters have never been accused of steroid use in the past, right?

Winstrol is not a cutter to lose weight, it is a muscle hardener. It can make you look leaner but that is all.

BONGTAR- Stone doesn't mean pound. A stone is 14lb and is generally only used in Britain, certainly not in Brazil. Therefore you are wrong.

Maybe while you're at it, you can rescue back the word "roommate" for us too.

Did I say Fat? I meant pregnant...

Did I tell you guys about my newest project? A friend and I are starting a private interest group to publicly challenge conventionally held misconceptions about the use of the color spectrum. We are calling ourselves the RRR or "Rednecks for Rainbow Reclamation" and our purpose is to wrestle (no homo) the color spectrum back from the homosexual aggressors. We've devised some striking uniforms to help conceal our identities while promoting our ideals with tie-dyed bedsheets and clever looking pointy caps. Most of our demonstrations will be peacefully enacted in the public to promote our message but serious offenders can expect a pile of burning crayons to be deposited on their front lawns. Nature made the rainbow for all humans you dirty homos! After the rainbow we're coming for the damn triangle!

I don't know how they were going to market a guy named "Queer-ohs" anyway. Here in North America a breakfast cereal that promotes homosexuality will go over just about as well as gay marriage.

Roids or not, that is one hell of a knee up there. He gave the guy a fuckin ass on his stomach. A gut butt if you will.

I do not believe there is any excuse to using a performance enhancing drug regardless of the reasons, amount found in your system. Shenanigans regardless though and a rule that should and is being enforced. He could always blame it on a sinus infection or something.

@Daddy_jeffy ...just keep telling yourself that

Seems like the article is taking what he said and making it something that it wasn't.

Now did he say ALL anabolic steroids are used for weight loss? Or just stanozolol?

B/c it seems like he said stanozolol... which he would pretty much be right about.

I've known at this point probably over a dozen people who have taken winstrol, aka winny's, for the sole purpose of losing weight and getting cut up. Their basic goal was to lose fat and retain their muscle. This was often done during a recomp cycle. So his perception of the drug is correct.

Either way though he took it so its kinda moot.

@ El Guapo lbs. = stone.

trying to get weight/stone.

Daddy_jeffy- November 11, 2010 at 1:07 pm
The primary use of alcohol is to have an excuse for banging fat chicks. Right??
El Guapo- November 11, 2010 at 1:02 pm
"...and get stone." Is he talking about getting high or is something lost in translation here? I'd think 'roids would be pretty low on the list of things that get you f'kd up. Lower than sniffing glue, drinking rubbing alcohol but probably higher than licking a toad. Am I missing out? Anybody??

4 stars -- brilliant

I don't like cocaine, I just like the way it smells

Don't steroids make you gain weight? I believe some is water weight, but I thought you would also gain muscle weight since you build them at a faster rate. I saw people who came off of them and they looked skinny.

CP is at it once again trying to ruffle the feathers of people, first that poor girl Arianny and along with that Dana White, then Cheick Kongo and now going after fat chicks, you should expect a late night phone call from NAAFA(National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance.)

I've been using Stanozolol for a year now, and haven't lost a pound. I would sue, but I'm too stoned to do anything.
