Crap!  I doubt Vitor gets licensed at his June 17th hearing as well.  Hope the UFC can find two (non-juicing) fighters on short notice to pick up the slack.

UFC 175 is still a good card, but that drops the fights down to eight.  They need to add a few ASAP.

/Still going to see it live.  I won't let a single fight getting called off ruin my vacation.

Fark you Chael, you were talking shiat about Wanderlei literally running away from a random drug test and now you go and fail one.
 
2014-06-10 06:12:35 PM  
go up to his face and tell him he failed a drug test see what happen's u haters

Maybe if they studied more they could pass the test.
 
2014-06-10 06:36:54 PM  
No, the white phone.

/somebody had to

Well, these drug tests confirm what I've known for a long time....  Sonnen is actually a woman.
"The reported results from the failed test show that Sonnen tested positive for two illegal substances: Anastrozole, which is typically utilized to treat and prevent early stages of breast cancer, and Clomiphene, which is mainly used for cases involving female infertility. "

I saw Sonnen on TV talking about this a little while ago. He was saying that he was legally on testosterone, but the UFC has banned even medical need usage of it so he was transitioning off of it. One of the things you need to do is control the estrogen uptake when you are coming off of testosterone, so he was on two estrogen suppressors neither of which are performance enhancers but /are/ banned substances.

They are likely banned substances because when you are cycling testosterone or an anabolic steroid you are also generally on an estrogen blocker of some sorts.

I think he will appeal and we'll see where it goes.

Maybe Overeem and Josh Barnett can step up on short notice.

cannotsuggestaname: He was saying that he was legally on testosterone, but the UFC has banned even medical need usage of it so he was transitioning off of it.


NSAC, not UFC recently banned TRT.  The drugs he was caught on have been on the banned list for some time, it wasn't a surprise.  Other fighters have managed to get off TRT without resorting to banned substances.  There are other alternatives he could have taken that aren't on the banned list.  And despite what he says, at least 1 of them has been used as a mild PED.

Or anyone on the entire UFC roster.

So when are they going to join the WWE? That's what Lesnar had to do.

Sonnen is actually a graduate of the Power Plant but McMahon pretty much doesn't want anyone under 300 pounds anymore. The posturing and fake fighting between Wandy and Chael on TUF this season was unwatchable.

A long time ago Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn made that jump and they were both terrible at it.

This...so much this.  Anyone on TRT (which is BS anyway) has had adequate time to get off.  The UFC needs to start banning fighters that use steroids...1 year isn't enough.

The athletic commission hands out the bans but yes, the UFC needs to start putting the hammer down.  Hell working banned substance use as grounds for contract termination into every contract would likely scare a lot of guys straight(insert gay jokes here)..

his mom said he had tiny balls to get him off the hook last time (literally; i spent that afternoon watching the nsac hearing streaming from the iphone of some guy from bloodyelbow)

aaaaand this time he needed to make those tiny balls work to have a baby. lol

honestly though ther fertittas give no farks; taking fights on short notice (and offering to fight jbj on 5 days notice in an attempt to save 151) bought chael a lifetime of goodwill with them (didnt seem to help bonnar though...)

In other UFC news, apparently Jason High's getting cut for putting his hands on the ref following his loss at Fight Night.  Dana White's compared it to the Paul Daley incident.

Didn't see the fight(out of town) but if that's true then good call.  The optics on that are terrible.

Aww, I was looking forward to seeing Sonnen fight, as I expect it would have been his last fight, or at least close to it. Chael isn't getting any younger, and while I'm sure his desire to compete is still strong, I don't think his body will take many more beatings. If this turns into a prolonged suspension, I can see Sonnen retiring and taking a seat in the Fox Broadcast booth permanently.

So they both cheat a little.

Who cares?

Let them fight.

At least the aren't boring.

I'd be happy to; if he touches me I can sue for a SHIAT TON of money.

I wish these guys would just let age do it's thing...gracefully, as they say...
Getting older means losing pieces of youth...for men, that means testosterone.
It's just fact. Just life...get over it...
Fight as you are, naturally..."as God made you"...or don't fight at all.
These guys, most of them, anyway...Chael, Vitor, Wanderlei...
They all have other sources of income, none of them will starve without a fighter's purse...
They all own MMA schools, they all promote half a dozen products, at least...endorsements...
Chael earns off commentating...Vitor and Wanderlei, I'm certain, could do the same thing in Brazil.
Being a man means more than winning fights...these guys, I don't think, think so...
But seriously. There's more to manning up than getting in the octagon...
Manning up is a heavier thing when you begin to accept your limitations...
Age is mean. Don't fark with it.

Slight correction, it was the California State Athletic Commission, and it also included Josh Barnett's application for a license.  And after watching that absolute debacle, I started to wonder if maybe Sean Sherk was right when he claimed he was innocent after getting popped.  There was only one person representing the commission who had any clue what was going on.  They were unbelievably incompetent.

Chael's defense makes sense, as the NSAC did not give them a period in which to transition from TRT to non-TRT safely (by using post-cycle therapy drugs).

However, he has had plenty of time to get his levels back via PCT (it's been what, 4 months?), so I think he is full of shiat.
 
2014-06-11 12:17:33 PM  
Just juice 'em up and let 'em fight.

They aren't responsible for "giving" him time - they don't book his fights, the UFC does. He just has to get licensed before the fight.

It was also his responsibility to inform the athletic commission of what he was doing. Double for him, since he's gotten in shiat before for not telling them what he was up to until he took the test.

These guys were juicing when they were 18-19 years old. A male in his mid to late 30s doesn't normally have testosterone THAT low that they need supplementation unless they were on anabolic steroids or synthetic testosterone and didn't post-cycle therapy correctly.
