In a surprising and refreshing move, an MMA fighter has been open and honest about his past performance-enhancing drug usage. John Alessio, a Canadian fighter that has competed all over the map and once challenged Pat Miletich for the UFC welterweight title, was a guest on Sherdog's Beatdown Radio and opened up about his usage in the past:

Good for him for saying it, even though he didn't have to.

Before the testing (and even now the majority of MMA athletes are not tested), I would bet my life on the majority of professional fighters using something that was then or is now considered a PED.

I'm a little over 6'1". I think his head tilt makes it look closer than it is, he's a tall dude.

John Alessio, nicknamed "The Natural" admitted to using PED's? My irony detector just exploded.

Apparently, it didn't help his fight career very much.

What does that have to do with this statement?

You're saying he isn't winning. He clearly is.

I could go smack some kid around and call it winning, but it really isnt.
