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

Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold Got a Little Shovey at Today’s UFC on FX 8 Weigh-Ins [VIDEO + RESULTS]


During Thursday’s UFC on FX 8 pre-fight press conference, Vitor Belfort did that thing he loves to do where he held his right fist out to Luke Rockhold‘s chin during their photo-op staredown. Luke was not amused. So, after the two headliners weighed in today at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil, Rockhold just walked straight through Belfort’s fist-pose, making body contact with the Brazilian fighter. Belfort shoved Rockhold, and Bootleg Dana had to separate them.

I don't think TRT or even steroid usage is that bad. For example if you're an engineer and is on the sauce and get yourself looking better. Maybe even learn how to protect the better in the streets. Maybe even learn a martial art. that doesn't give you any advantage in your workplace

any advantage on the street is a fair may have to deal with more than one person even an unfair situation like that, strength can play a role.

however it if you make a living as an athlete then it's no longer a fair advanage. It's unfair. the playing field to come unequal

This article is so horribly written i want to build a time machine, travel back in time to the WTO protest is Seattle and punch a riot cop in the dick so i can get simultaneously tear gassed, pepper sprayed, flash bang grenaded, bean bag shot gunned, and maybe tasered all at the same time and then go stay the night in jail covered in my own blood, urine, feces, and vomit.
