Report: Whistleblower says MMA fighters also were Biogenesis PED clients

Quote:
In addition to some high-profile MLB players, the Florida-based Biogenesis clinic also supplied performance-enhancing drugs to MMA fighters, a whistleblower reportedly claims.

According to ESPN's "Outside the Lines," Biogenesis employee-turned-whistleblower Porter Fischer said the client list stretches beyond MLB and includes "athletes from the NBA, NCAA, professional boxing, tennis and MMA, in addition to other professional baseball players who have not yet been identified."

He hasn't yet identified the athletes.

After backpay issues with clinic founder Tony Bosch, Fischer turned over documents to the Miami New Times in 2012. It ultimately led to an MLB investigation and the recent suspension of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, the 2011 National League MVP. However, his intention to spark a federal investigation of Biogenesis and Bosch never came to fruition. Fischer said Bosch passed himself off as a medical doctor, though he has no medical degree. Bosch previously administered Fischer weight-loss regimens of prescription drugs, and Fischer ultimately invested in the company and briefly became its marketing director before the backpay issues.

While the initial media focus has been on Braun, Alex Rodriguez and 20 or so other MLB clients who also could be facing suspensions, Fischer said documents identify athletes from the other sports going back to 2009.

"In just the four years that I know, it's got to be well over a hundred (involved athletes), easy," he told "Outside the Lines." "It's almost scary to think about how many people have gone through [Bosch's treatments] and how long he's gotten away with this."

Fischer didn't say if the alleged MMA clients hail from Florida, which is home to major MMA camps such as American Top Team and the Blackzilians.

For those that aren't familiar, the Biogenesis thing is pretty huge within the team sporting world with some big names being thrown around.

Not a surprise if you ask me. MMA is a playground for PED users with its limited testing. There isn't even testing during camp for God's sake. That's like telling fighters "Yeah, you can use it as long as it's not in your system on fight day."
