The only thing thats messed up is the obvious fact that Zuffa were trying to force him to fight despite this!

Hope he gets it sorted soon, would it be wrong to hope him and Silva fall out (maybe over this) so they fight eventually?

I think normally they would consider at least having an Interim title fight... but it's prob hard to slide someone in to fight Sonnen on less than a weeks notice...

The new trend in pro sports drug testing is that you don't need a positive test in order to be popped for performance enhancers. Circumstancial evidence is enough but I have never heard of a pro athlete going to rehab so we will see. Filho should absolutley be stripped of the belt. I would love if the NSAC went down to Brazil and make him fill a cup.

PS If my boy Nick Diaz gets a win stripped for the ganja, then Filho needs some consequences for whatever he is on.

There is a long list of drugs chemical dependency can cover but steroids is not one of them. Plus he has been tested before so that really narrows the list down heavily. My guess would be either pain pills or heroin. But like I said this is just a guess.




Steroids are absolutely addictive and can cause dependency.




telenights said "chemical addiction". There are functional groups on certain drugs that have been clinically shown to be chemically (physically) addictive, mostly if not exclusively of the opioid group.

Addiction also covers psychological addiction, which is associated with steroids (among other drugs)

Thank you was just about to post that.

Good, he was about to lose anyway. His head wasn't right last week when this was rumored so I knew from then on he was going to lose if he fought. But now he'll get better and be back at 100% in June in which he will spank this dude and make him look amateur.
