So well known that you're gonna give us sources?

I like MMA less because of this forum

That was more likely Tito, given his gigantism side effects!

Makes you think about Dan 'The Beast' Severn's, 101 - 19 MMA record, fighting well into his mid 50's.

Eh. Not really.

If he did he would know Randy was doing the eco challenge and winning it every year from an unreal training routine way ahead of its time, and a diet routine second to none. He ate massive amounts of greens, and was the epitomy of a health freak.
He was never particularly strong or fast but he was very clever the way he fought. The type of fights Randy used to put on were all based on technique, taking very little damage in fights. The cagework people can do now Randy was destroying people with for years based purely on grappling technique, something that is highlighted very well in the Fight Master series he is coaching on right now
He clearly slowed down when he got older, getting caught with punches from the likes of lesnar that he really should of been avoiding, and his age caught up to him against Nog and Vera although he beat Vera. He got by up to that age on his wits. He came back and beat Syliva not because of strength power and speed but because he was just smarter then timmy. When the divisions got more stacked with better fighters he got found out with his lack of speed and strength compared to the younger guys. The Machida fight highlighted that fact.
Looking at Randys physique for his fights he never had the look of a guy getting a load of testosterone into him either. He was always just in solid shape but never bulging with muscles.

Looks like Jose is setting himself up for his own TRT exemption, sulking away with his broken foot.
Too bad they've just translated the "shocking" part, cause otherwise you'd know that Pederneiras would never allow it.

Are you suggesting Shannon Ritch is not a world class opponent?

Really, and you base this on what? Anavar is easy to hide as it's not for size, but strength and it doesn't make you all bloated. HGH usage is a bit easier to see, just look at Sly Stallone, there's no way someone his age is going to be that hard, ripped and veinous. Randy never had that kind of body, so I'd really love to see your proof, now if you were just talking out your ass, then neg-repping is what you deserve.

I think Aldo is right when he says PED usage is more widespread than you think. If the testing doesn't improve soon we might have a Tour de France situation going on in the near future.

i was thinking the same thing. never crossed my mind

now... im thinking its pretty damn likely

Aldo fights with an aggressiveness and strength that few in his weight class can match. Perhaps he should be tested as well. I've always felt that those who point fingers in these situations are guilty as well as those accused.

If Jose put this much thought into training, he might not gas in every fight.
