UFC Statement

So, can we just give GSP the GOAT moniker now? I mean, come on now. 

Oh, and Diaz failed a post-fight test for weed, which is irrelevant.

Gabi used to weight 230-240 lbs. I am pretty sure that is close to the weight she carried on the TUF house.

@curtwag in 2009 she weighted about 125kg (275 lbs)...  she is planing to make her MMA debut at around 84kgs (185 lbs) in Jungle Fight this year... she's 6'2, though so she'll always be too big for current female weightclasses

Leban admitted to taking roids not Chael.

Chael lied and and tried to save face with his trying have a family crap.

He said none of the stuff he took where steroids. but then he then got busted for HGH and EPO in the 2nd test and said. 


“I didn't want to say anything that could water down my guilt. I thought it was important when you're wrong, just say you're wrong, and I was wrong,”

Leban flat out said he knowingly took the drug and thought it would be out of his system by the time the fight happened.

By the way, since they implemented enhanced drug testing 31% of fighters subject to out-of-competition tests failed at least one of those. So... Yeah.

Looks like the 30-50% number bandied about in interviews for years has truth to it.

They should just give him the decision, especially if he's gonna retire anyway.

I think this is the first for a fight that both fighters tested positive.

An interesting article about what a doctor has to say about Anderson's test results and how this type of drugs would help in his recover (I'm surprise it took this long for article about this), here it is.

Also here is what Bisping has to say about it.
