Why are you guys suprised by Sonnen?

It's only obvious that a bunch of fighters are on roids. The same with football, espcially the lineman. The only reason that they don't crack down in eaither sport is becuase the profits they make off these althletes is tremendous. That's why they let McGwire & Sosa do that s*** in the 90's revenue. Lesnar, Carwin, Duffy, just look how yoked they are, and Carwin's name was mentioned recently in some steroid shipment buisness; and Lesnar was juiced before we was in the UFC.

Almost all the fighters are the same, especially the people who aren't champs & contenders, that's the bulk of steroid use. All the fighters in the UFC are like clones: big yoked bastards who rely on muscle, athleticism, & have hardly any technique. The only fighters that actually train right, who don't look like oxes, use their brain, and have good technique are the champs; and people wonder why Silva & GSP are so dominate. Bruce had it right, he was cut ass hell, he didn't look like Arnold when he fought & he praticied technique & he chose the style right for him. This leads to another problem with the UFC - fighting styles.

Dennis Hallman said that 50% of the fighters were using PEDs & he was forced by Dana & fellow fighters to rebut the statment. That's probably not an exaggerated estimate either. But Dana had it right, what are you gonna do [what can you do]? They spend millions of dollars to prevent something like this, but people wana be champs and they'll do aything to win. But how can you really make them learn till after the fact. Hindsight means nothing, I'm sorry becuase I got caught doesn't work. A Yahoo! Sports writer said that the athletes use PEDs becuase they believe the consequences far out weigh the positive gain. If you truly want to abloshi steroids, not just from the UFC, but every sport, is to make the statment debunked. Dana White said he didn't know how to punsih them becuase the goverment takes away their job and they get fined, well good, tack on more punishment. People are very stubbourn and that's why we have consequences, so people obey and don't do stupid stuff. Harsh punishment is the only way.

So when you hear about fighters who are on roids don't be suprised just look at them and analyze their behavior. When someone looks like they're about to fall over or they can't turn to wipe their ass, i'm suspicious. When people suddenly put on a whole bucnh on muscle quick and their fights improve tremendously it's not training, it's something else. Look at how much better Sonnen got, no matter what anybody says, Roids don't just affect your muscle they give you better coordination and timing, and even speed. Just compare the difference between Pujols & Bonds, Bonds got better & stronger all of a sudden, in his late 30's of all times. Where Pujols has had the same numbers and been the same size for 10 seasons now. as for fighting & football, it's just not as big an issue because they'd have to ban half the people from the sport & they couldn't make money off them.

So next time you hear about another UFC fighter was on steroids, don't act so surprised.
