Report: MMA fighters also were Biogenesis PED clients

 

Porter Fischer recently brought public a scandal involving a company named Biogenesis provided performancing enhancing drugs to professional athletes, including some unnamed as of yet MMA fighters.

The man who turned the Biogenesis clinic from a quiet investigation in Miami into a national scandal says there are at least a dozen more athletes whose names haven't been exposed and that they come from across the sports world.

Porter Fischer, the former Biogenesis of Miami clinic employee who turned boxes of documents over to the Miami New Times last year, declined to name the athletes. But in his first television interview, Fischer told "Outside the Lines" that numerous sports had at least one athlete who received performance-enhancing drugs from clinic founder Tony Bosch.

"This isn't a 2013 thing or a 2012 thing; some of these people have been on the books since 2009," Fischer said.

Fischer said he and associates have identified athletes from the NBA, NCAA, professional boxing, tennis and MMA, in addition to other professional baseball players who have not yet been identified. As far as he knows, Fischer said, Bosch had no clients from the NFL or NHL.

Bro, nobody gives a shit if Lorenzo is on steroids. If you're not an athlete, it's not really a big deal. Fitness models and such, are usually completely open about juicing. I could see why he wouldn't want that out, but it's really not a big deal.

It's funny how people in this thread are assuming that any big name athlete based out of Miami must be on this list, like you fucking morons haven't heard of an airplane before.

Does it even matter?  UFC won't do what the MLB has done with A-Rod.  We all know Dana isn't going to suspend someone unless they piss hot after a fight.

Not trying to be overly cynical - but I wonder if there aren't any big fish left on the list, simply because I would suspect that if there *were,* someone somewhere would be in a HUGE rush to release it.No one wants to break the story on Joe Blow benchwarmer of the Birmingham Banana Slugs AA baseball team....but damn near most journalists would love to be the ones who "took down" Lebron or GSP or whoever....

http://deadspin.com/the-full-list-of-suspended-biogenesis-clients-1029648603any more indo on mma fighters involved? As we all sit and wait for MLB's official announcement on Alex Rodriguez, the players who have accepted suspensions for their roles in the Biogenesis scandal have begun to leak, including the three names that hadn't yet been leaked.Update: Alex Rodriguez has been suspended 211 games.Those unexpected players, as reported by Yahoo's Jeff Passan, are the Mets' Jordany Valdespin, the Phillies' Antonio Bastardo, and the Astros' Sergio Escalona.Fox Sports's Ken Rosenthal reports that those three, as well as Texas's Nelson Cruz, San Diego's Everth Cabrera, and Detroit's Jhonny Peralta will be accepting 50-game suspensions, the same as a failed test under the Joint Drug Agreement.Additional players facing punishment include Seattle's Jesus Montero, the Yankees' Francisco Cervelli, and minor leaguers Cesar Puello (Mets), Fautino De Los Santos (free agent), Fernando Martinez (Yankees), and Jordan Norberto (free agent). All are expected to receive 50-game suspensions.Bartolo Colon, Melky Cabrera, and Yasmani Grandal will not face further punishment, as they have already served 50-game suspensions for failing drug tests. Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension last month. Cesar Carrillo, a minor leaguer whose name appeared in Biogenesis documents, was handed a 100-game suspension and was subsequently released by the Tigers.Washington's Gio Gonzalez and Baltimore's Danny Valencia, despite being mentioned in early Biogenesis reports, have been cleared of wrongdoing by MLB's investigation.The announcements on the suspension lengths of the other players, including Alex Rodriguez, are still forthcoming.
