Vitor Tests Positive
So as many of you know, Vitor Belfort was caught along with another fighter for having banned substances in his system following his loss at Pride Saturday night. We did have a thread about this steroid stuff that seemed to focus on Monson just last week. At first I thought steroid use was a rarity among MMA fighters (naive maybe) but now it seems that perhaps it's a bit more commonplace than I thought. I wonder if the UFC really wants to catch these guys or if they feel the overblown physiques and enhanced strength adds to these guys' performance. It's kinda sad if athletes are forced to do steroids just to keep up with other fighters who get away with it and no how to work the short half lives of some of these substances. I wonder about fighters like Monson, Hughes, GSP, who seem to have freakish strength ..
