I don't think "they all" do it, but I wouldn't argue with you about Mendes. I'm not saying for sure, but its definitely a possibility.

The problem I have with juicing accusations, is that people act like the only possible way for a human to bulk up or get ripped is by doing steroids. That's just not true!

Yeah I wouldn't say they all do it, but the better part of all of them have one time or another. As for getting big with out the gas......I agree there are other ways, I just have a hard time believing a elite pro mma fighter has the time to take on a bodybuilding career as well. The commitment to lift and eat on top of bjj wrestling and striking training would be outrageous.

My sister is a fitness competitor and I trained mma for 7 years. I'm not saying I know everyone or how exactly it is. My experience is what leads me to feel that way.

He does look huge but it's right after/During a workout and he does have a weight in his hand.

I think it's a post workout Mendes. Plus with Faber as one of the elders of the camp I don't think he would allow that type of stuff. Faber appears to be a very clean and ethical figure.

no way that's Lentz. Doesn't look like him, plus he just fought Mendes back in December, Team Alpha Male guys refuse to fight each other so high probability it's not.

He looks huge, but it also kind of looks like his right arm has shriveled up, so it might be a photoshop.
