Re: The MMA Thread

Jones-DC fight officially changed to NC
Does that mean DC gets his belt back?

A thought I had read (and prior, not considered) was that underground labs that make PEDs aren't always the most fastidious when it comes to cleaning vials after use.

It's possible that JBJ ordered some undetectable **** that was legitimately contaminated by Turinabol and we only found it because of the new, more effective test for it.

Now as to why he's getting his **** from Heisenberg and not some lab in Switzerland and why they aren't testing the ****...yeah, his team is pretty lol.

He didn't really have to bother hiding much pre usada, it was very easy to do a cycle 3-4 months out and be clean by fight time testing.

He's only had 3 scheduled fights post usada.

OSP - looked kinda crap for JJ vs middle tier opposition.

popped before DC rematch the first time so the fight didn't happen.
popped from a tested before the actual DC rematch but late enough the fight happened.

so He's popped 2/3 times in the usada era, and looked like **** the only time he didn't pop....

One of the best main cards i've ever seen, Gsp return, FOTY in Cody vs TJ, queen joana beating down rose & a war in masvidal vs wonderboy. I really hope nobody gets injured cause i'm so pumped for ufc 217.

p.s Jon Jones is a loser, him & his whole family been on steroids since day one & without it he probably wouldn't even win anything in junior college muchless the UFC.

Masvidal/Wonderboy and Cummins/Anderson are the fights that pop out to me besides Cody/TJ.

Re: The MMA Thread

Cormier officially reinstated as LHW champ

TJ vs Cody has GOAT fight potential
GSP vs Bisping has WOAT fight potential

No one in the UFC would win a single fight without it ROFL.

Main fight will probably not be good at all. Lol women's MMA. Cody Vs TJ the real fight to watch here.

Re: The MMA Thread

Hendricks has been a mess. Missed weight twice in a row at WW and lost both fights. Then he moved up to MW and looked decent in a decision win then the next fight (which was his most recent) he missed weight at MW and got stopped in the fight.

So basically yeah he has kinda sucked lately.

Re: The MMA Thread

If anyone is suspect for the usada effect is it Hendricks imo. Speed, strength, camp health and ability to cut all fell of a cliff.

Pre USADA you would've been correcy but clearly most of the sport is clean now, so many guys have fallen & looked so different + performances have suffered and alot of mid tier guys have risen to the top. Especially after JJ popping and potentially having his legacy tarnished forever and his career over i think it will go from 20-30% or whatever the usage rate currently is to as close to 0% ped usage in the UFC.

I would be shocked if the usage rate got below 25%, 1 in 4 guys will always use no matter what, the usage rate is probably way higher than 50%

Yeah, he lost 6 of his last 9. Awful. How the **** do you miss weight at MW when you fought most of your career at WW?

We obviously can't but if we could somegow bet on this, you're giving up free-er money than Floyd.

Plenty of people are still on PEDs, most just have undetectable ****

If it's so easy to get undetectable steroids and pass these strict USADA test then please tell me why in the sport of track & field you have elite athletes times going down each year once they became more strict? not to mention more injuries & longer recovery times in the last few years.

Tell me why Overeem is still no longer Ubereem after getting caught? or why did Brock Lesnar or Jon Jones get caught? those are three of the biggest names in mma and all worth in the millions but yet it's so easy to get undetectable steroids and pass these USADA testing but they can't & yet lower level guys can?

Again i'm not saying nobody in the UFC is on steroids, i will never believe Yoel Romero is clean as at 40 years old he's bigger, leaner & more explosive than the elite 20 year olds but at the same time let's not act as if USADA hasn't vastly cleaned up the sport & that both the fighters and the fans haven't seen the effects. Not even sure if USADA is good for the sport tbh, was clearly more entertaining pre USADA & not like we have had any deaths or anything in UFC.

I don't think he understands how that statement comes off, like bro, you failed two test for steroids so far & nobody believes your asss is clean, don't swear on your children, like wtf. Now we not only think of you as a cheat but a piece of crap human being who doesn't care about his kids, smh.

p.s ready to eat crow if Jones sues one of his supplement companies for millions & wins like his coach said he will once this process is over.
