    sure now it has shifted from picking on the rule breaker to picking on the chubby drunk on a tuesday guy

    quinn is right on the money… its a major health concern not a performance enhancer issue, like he stated earlier it won’t even enhance mma performance. a suspension would not be for “cheating” it would be for taking drugs that may kill you in the cage and cause major problems in MMA, and more difficulties in sanctioning.

    @Big Boi

    No axe to grind besides the fact that i hate to see hard working athletes passed over due to these cheaters!

    @Advin Omic

    If you really believe that these cheats are not getting a unfair advantage over other you sir are more naive then a 16 year old girl on prom night! The fact of the matter is yes theses guys do train hard but they develop skills, strength, leaner muscle, much faster recovery times, better cardio then their peers. “magic” has nothing to do with it, Steroids do!

    @Adam Lorenz

    What makes me an expert? well i wouldn’t call myself expert on the subject however i do consider myself slightly more educated on the subject then the average person. Even the average fighter apparently. 4 years in school studying sport medicine, and sport therapy does allow me to have an educated opinion on the subject! Remember no one is naming names here aside form the guys I’ve worked with and trust have never taken part in these illegal drugs.

    @Sean Quinn

    For the first time ever I’m in agreement with you. People do die all the time from abuse of ephedrine and steroids. Yes there should be much bugger penalties then what was handed down!

    In summary this bothers me sooo much i cant begin to explain. Having worked closely with boxer’s and MMA fighters one thing i can say for sure is, integrity and honor and far and few between in combat sports. Especially in MMA where these traits are meant to be a way of life amongst its competitors!

    I do however realize there are many great people involved in the sport. You people know who you are. I applaud you.

  4. Trevor Wright says:

    Well I guess this is why I never comment on these things. Jaime and Gunner I totally agree with what your saying about that mike should not be excused because he’s a nice guy and he’s sorry. What I’m saying is I don’t think everyone should consider the guy an idiot for doing what he did. I had a bad head cold before the fight and if I would have been caught by the commision taking certain cold medications before the fight the same thing could have happened to me(I didn’t take any medication by the way).

    The rules for that sort of thing aren’t really that clearly laid out and when your looking at going into your first pro fight and you have all the other things going on in your head its the last thing you would think of. Maybe commissions or promoters need to do a better job of telling fighters what exactly they can and can’t take before a fight. Any way all i’m saying is put yourself in Mike’s shoes, alot of us probably could have done the same thing and if it was me I wouldn’t like getting shit on by everybody the way he has.

  6. Adam Lorenz says:

    Cheats, yes I agree that using steroids is a large advantage as recovering from hard training, so that you can continue training really hard, and healing injuries faster would be just as beneficial as the increased performance it may bring. As far ad not naming names well you did call out “most” of the top ten guys in each division earlier. If you know more about how common the use of steroids is then please share it because we are mostly just speculating that most people besides the guys you know are users.

    Few and far in between? In the sport of Mma 90%to of my interactions with people have been unbelievably awsome. Great people in gyms, at events, tournaments. Tons of commeradery between complete strangers. Instant friends made over a couple nervous words in the back room. Roids however I’ve seen possibly 2 incidents. P.s. we don’t make enough $ buy any lol(bad joke)

  8. Gunner says:

    Mr Lorenz please stop rubbing it in already i am not in the top ten like you but as you can see i am jacked on jack and many vodka tapouts for that i will blame tapout energy no one in there right mind should ever supply with me with that many of those drinks as it is a given what they will be used for and for that i apologize as i will fail all alcohol related tests until January 2….

    Trevor i was not attacked him although it was some what ummmm dumb to do and to think taking Ephy would have been a smart move

    my point is that regardless the commission should be taking this more serious than just okay you blatantly broke a rule and you are not allowed to fight and to add salt to the wound he was still paid and no fine no anything… hell if it works that i am gonna go to every fight drunk and i better still get paid when the commission says i am no shape to fight ….. but what fun would that be

  14. mmafan says:

    Hey Mike, Who is your trainer and why didnt he know that this was a banned substance? Anyone who coaches a fighter and knows that he is going to be making his Pro mma debut should inform the fighter of the rules/regulations of the event. I mean, the fighter should obviously know as well but the fighter is concentrating on preparing for the fight…the coach/trainer/manager is there to take of the fighter and make sure that they are aware of all the rules etc.
