Steroid Drama

Could someone break down all the steroid myths, facts, and rumors for me? I'm hearing that some of the parties involved were Sylvia, Franklin, and Hughes? I'd appreciate it very much.

it's all surmise until someone starts tanning a lot to stop the breakouts.

or until they get caught sticking themselves in the ass cheek, I guess.

The only confirmed steroid user as far as I know out of the group that you mentioned was Tim Sylvia. He served a suspension. I have often mentioned that if he were using steroids he should sue the manufacturer because they don't appear to be working.

yeah the only guy from that group that has tested positive is sylvia. he served his suspension and had to start at the bottom of the heavyweight contender ladder.

other than that, i know bonnar tested positive. vitor belfort and pawe nastula have tested positive as well. and randleman tried to use someone elses urine for a test.

but the other guys in your list, i haven't heard anything.

Just so you know, there is a difference between testing positive for illegal steroids and testing positive for an illegal 'substance'. In many cases the illegal substances turn out to be a part of a legal product and fighters are cleared. Vitor, for example, made the same claim although he was charged and is serving his suspension. He did not use steroids, but other illegal substance. It may seem that it does not make a difference what you use, but we will never know if the fighter is telling the truth - he may have in fact inserted the illegal substance through a legal product. This is the reason there are different severities in charges for different offenses.

The UFC is more stricter on their substance abuse policies than Pride FC. Sylvia is the only fighter that comes to my mind as being suspended to testing positive!!!

steroids are not used just to bulk up.
They can be used to shorten rehab too.
