Whatever Palhares did, didn't help him and the shitty gameplan didn't help either.

I heard Palhares pissed hot in a grappling tournament a few years back, but they still let him compete. Surprised at Beltran though.

had to look up the word Nandrolone, found it to be an anabolic steroid and according to wikipedia: Nandrolone decanoate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

before we demonize beltran, maybe he was having some osteoporosis problems?

Not surprised by Palhares. The guy is built like a damn silverback gorilla.

In retrospect, it makes sense that Beltran pissed hot. He was a totally different fighter that night.

anyone ever heard of a losing fighter attempting to sue a winning fighter that injured them & was found later to have juiced?

is that even possible w/ fighter contracts?

True...but I thought I read he broke his foot early in the 1st rd (?), not sure.

If Lombard was tested and came up positive would we be surprised? He's quite the specimen too...
