Mixed martial arts icon Royce Gracie (Pictures), best known as the slender gi-wearing Brazilian who twisted oversized competitors into knots during the early days of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, tested positive for traces of Nandrolone, a commonly used anabolic steroid, following his decision win over Kazushi Sakuraba (Pictures), June 2 in Los Angeles, the California State Athletic Commission revealed Thursday.


Straight from Sherdog; Wow I'm kind of in shock.

I agree; a lot of people were making comments on how big he looked.

He doesn't seem like the kind of guy to do that. But I always sorta wondered how he stayed in that good shape at such an old age. Just goes to show you can never judge a book by its cover.

What about Randy, He's older and in a lot better shape. And come to think of it when he interviewed GG after he beat Cro-Cop he looked a lot more bulkier, Maybe he's on the Juice to. Wait this is Captain America i'm talking about, he couldn't.....but if Gracie could...........

Unbelievable, what a disappointing ending to a disappointing fight.

He's going to get simultaneous armbars from Rorion and Rickson while Helio triangles him.

I think Randy really is a genetic freak... He's lived a pretty healthy and clean life from what I've heard, and just has the genetics to be in that kinda shape later in his years...

I was listening to the SDS,and they interviewed Randy... I think it was Savage, asked him about why he looked so huge in that suit... Randy said that a lot of people have asked him about it, and that it was just a bad suit... He still weighs right around 225lbs, so I think he just looked like a giant in that instance.

WTF!? That's crazy, he doesn't seems like a big guy. It seems like a ton of fighters are getting caught latley.

GRACIE's claiming innocence:

"I have never in my 14-year fighting carrier [sic] taken anything other then natural supplements and natural proteins," said Gracie, who was paid $300,000 to fight. "As such, I am shocked that anything was found in my system."
