Title: Basically the Jon Jones Steroid Thread
Post by: Firmino of the 909 on December 23, 2015, 10:57:31 AM
I figured we should have a place to put these because I can't figure out where one of the news bits was.

Anyway, everyone knows Gleison Tibau got busted for the roids in an out of competition test, BUT he also got caught using EPO in a post-fight drug test. This is actually quite difficult to catch someone on, but increased testing made it happen. USADA testing is legit, and the further implementation of a biological passport is going to catch a ton of people.

Damn. That's a good catch.

And if he fades that bad after 2 rounds with EPO, imagine without it. He'll make Romero look like a cardio machine.

All the regular anabolic stuff that he took gave his frame way more muscle than it was supposed to handle. His blood can't carry the oxygen well enough on its own to keep that engine going, makes sense that he'd take some EPO to artificially do it for him.

The funny thing to me is how readily certain people accepted that this guy was just an athletic freak and not on steroids. At 38 years old this guy looked more explosive, powerful, and muscular than anyone else in the division.

Newsflash: There is no such thing as somebody that much more athletic than anybody else their size that is not on steroids.

Tibau dropped his appeal and is accepting the suspension because fighting it is "too expensive" which I imagine is code for "I have no defense but won't admit I'm a cheat".

It seems like USADA is taking the stance of "Ok, we believe you when you say you didn't know the supplements were tainted but at the end of the day you should know what you're ingesting."

There's really only two ways this could have happened.

1) He didn't pay attention to the formula of the supplements and if he had he'd have noticed that there were prohibited items in it he shouldn't have taken it. In which case fuck him he deserves the two years.

2) The prohibited items weren't on the label. And if that's the case if I'm him I'm suing the company in question for costing me money.

Post by: Lord of The Curry on April 04, 2016, 08:28:51 AM
Looks like the suspension is 6 months retroactive not 9 so he's free to fight as of July 12th. He was next in line for a title shot but I feel like if Weidman wins the UFC might do the trilogy so give Romero the winner of Vitor/Jacare. Yes I know he fought Jacare already and the fight sucked but I also think the fight was a draw and him vs Vitor is fire.

I know being the Frank Mir fanboy that I am, I have to come in here and defend the guy. He was on his podcast this weekend where he talked about it in full.

He said he tested positive for the lowest limits for an oral steroid. This was the test taken on March 19, after the fight with Hunt.

Frank said the USADA guys told him that the amount in his system, he likely took it 4-6 weeks out. However, Frank passed a random USADA drug test in early February at his house. That means Frank would have had to take this steroid over the span of a week (a steroid that helps with cutting weight and endurance) after passing this random drug test.

Now anybody who has any knowledge of steroids know that you need to be on it for more than a week to get the benefits. Also the fact that Frank KNEW he would get drug tested again the night of his fight make it odd that he would risk it.

I don't want to say that something could have been contaminated (not just supplements, but food) but Frank has always been straight forward with his TRT, adderall and anything else and has passed every USADA drug test he had been given (6 in total before March 19).

yeah, I don't think anyone was buying the "tainted supplement" bs in the first place......

and given Chael's history, and history of getting popped, I think he knows what he's talking about.  It's like getting A-Rod to weigh in on PED suspensions in baseball.  It would not surprise me at all if Jones was coming off a cycle and got popped for drugs meant to deal with that......which is p stupid and lazy on his part to get popped like that.....but at least it wasn't cocaine and he didn't kill someone driving fucked up

The Nevada State Athletic Commission extended a temporary suspension for Jon Jones on Monday and revealed two banned substances the UFC star tested positive for.

According to the NSAC's complaint, an out-of-competition sample provided by Jones on June 16 tested positive for clomiphene, which is listed as an anti-estrogenic substance on the banned list, and traces of letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, which works to prevent the synthesis of androgens such as testosterone into estroge

Why bother with suspensions then? Just fire them.

It used to be "The UFC doesn't do enough about PEDs" and now it's "They should stop suspending fighters". You can't have it both ways. Mendes knew the risks. He decided the risks were worth it. He got caught. If he's not punished, they may as well scrap the project.

Yeah, that's what they do man. That's how they took down Lance Armstrong. He never tested positive, but everyone knew he was on shit as a result of their work so eventually he had to admit it.

If Mirko snitched on another fighter they would follow that fighter around and attempt to render them completely unable to cheat. They use tips and monitor discussion on internet forums about how fighters look to decide who gets tested the most. That's what the UFC hired them for. These guys will do literally whatever it takes to make the sport clean. Everyone this Jeff Novitzky has investigated has been found to be dirty.

It should be pointed out that we always wonder about the "USADA effect" and speculate as to why guys look different. But we KNOW Chael was on like 20 different PED's, so it's not a matter of if he'll look different so much as how much. I'll say VERY different.

Been training, spending time with family, attacking some of these legal issues that I've gotten myself into and trying to really just leave all that behind once and for all.

Sure you guys are curious about with this USADA situation. Obviously, I can't get into it because it’s still pending but, what I can say is that that we have found out lots of really good news and I am expecting to be back in the octagon really soon. Thank you guys for your support. Love you guys and I hope you're spending this Sunday with the people that you love.

Alright, be good and hope to see you guys really soon. Bye.”

It's possible. Tainted supplement may be the claim perhaps.
Title: Re: New Positive Steroid Tests (Jon Jones)
Post by: jimmy no nose on August 16, 2016, 09:47:11 PM
Dana's full statement makes it pretty clear that it's a tainted supplement defense. Actually it seems like an incredibly shaky tainted supplement defense and I can't believe he's even buying it.

Quote
“Well, it’s coming back now that it looks like he did not take the supplement that everybody thought he took. We’ll see how this thing plays out.”

“I don’t even know if this is public. I didn’t know if I can talk about it. Normally, I talk about anything, but when it comes to medical stuff, you can’t do it. It’s looking like Jon Jones did not take the drug everybody thought he took. It looks like it’s something else.”

“I’ll let this thing play out and if that’s true and that’s what USADA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission say happened, it could look good for Jon Jones.”

“He didn’t get a bum wrap. He definitely didn’t get a bum wrap, but the substance that he was on, it was a pill that you take when you’re coming off of steroids. But this thing is apparently in other things. Jon took something else.”

“Where he doesn’t come off clean is you have to tell USADA everything that you put in your body leading up to the fight and he did not.”

So basically he's trying to say he took some supplement that happens to have the substance he popped for in it, but conveniently didn't tell USADA he took that supplement ahead of time like he was supposed to. So it's entirely possible that his team searched far and wide until they found some supplement that would have the substance he popped for in it and then claimed that's what he took. Of course there's no way of verifying that because he didn't report it to USADA. I can't see how that defense would hold up.

Even assuming he comes back Cormier has said that the winner of Glover/Rumble is next. If anything I could see Jones coming back at HW because I'm pretty sure if DC has his way Jones will never get a title shot again after what he put him through.

He's coming off as a whiny bitch in all this.

Post by: Lord of The Curry on January 11, 2017, 02:34:36 AM
I don't see how he's coming off as a whiny bitch at all. It's pretty obvious that Dana's story about Brock being a last-minute addition to UFC 200 is bullshit and he could have participated in the full USADA program but they knew he would have popped. That's what Hunt's case relies on.

2 year ban for Werdum for taking trenbolone which is an anabolic steroid. UFC career is probably over but he's got the Coker Connection so he could end up in Bellator at the end of it even though he'd be 43 then.

Edit: For those of us keeping track it took USADA to issue a suspension from the flagging date until now less then 4 months. Jon Jones still hasn't received a sentence and it's been almost 14 months since he got flagged. The case for DC/Jones III at Madison Square Garden just got a serious boost.

Dom usually comes of as intelligent on issues but last night he was just being a dumb company man.  Lesnar of course has roids in him for pro wrestling.  It isn't something he is hiding, which is why he can't just step into the UFC to fight on a whim, he has to detox his body.   The difference is Bones is likely juicing and lying about it and recycling these dumbass arguments made by other UFC company boys.

It should be rather simple to test clean.  Don't ingest banned substances.  DC tweeted Dom on the spot during the post-show to call him out for saying "this testing stuff aside" ummm...the fuck?  So that is the new plan, ignore that Bones continues to fail tests because hey "people want to see the fight"

Meltzer says Jones had 2 more trace positive tests to kick off January, but nothing will come of it.
