Dennis Siver tests positive for prohibited drug


Following UFC 168 it was reported that two fighters had inconclusive results, than required further testing.

MMAFighting's Mike Chiappetta reports via Twitter that Siyar Bahadurzada's B-sample came back negative, so he is clear.

However, that is not the case with the second fighter.

Steven Marrocco @MMAjunkieSteven
UFC 168's Denis Siver has been flagged for hCG, NSAC in process of issuing temp suspension pending hearing.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is increasingly used in combination with various anabolic androgenic steroid cycles. As a consequence, HCG is included in in the list of drugs the Nevada athletic commission tests for.

In all likelihood, Silver win over Manny Gamburyan will be changed to a No Contest, and his previous wins will fall under a cloud of suspicion.

HCG forces the testes to produce testosterone, but that's it. it doesn't help keep the hypothalamus or pituitary in the loop at all.and more importantly, there is some debate as to how long HCG is really effective... when one takes exogenous hormones, then the negative feedback will occur. the same thing would be logical to occur after some point in taking HCG... just because it works for a while, doesn't mean that the body won't stop responding after extended said "take it during cycle so your natural test never shuts down." don't be offended if i corrected you, because that's clearly wrong.....

You take it during cycle so your nuts dont shrink so recovery of natural test is quicker

Hcg returns your nuts to normal size s when you start nolv or clomid you body doesn't have to work as hard to get your natural test goin because ur nuts are normal size......also hcg is sold as hgh alot which can be determined with a pregnancy test to see if the hgh is not hcg

I really hate comments like this.Nowhere did I say it prevents full shutdown. Only that it will keep you producing natural T.

What's worse having fighters juice their brains out before fights and try to get their systems to do something while off during the fight or let guys use test as trt to have high "natural" levels and test them multiple times a month to make sure they aren't ramping up during camp.

Hcg can be used to raise test levels with other things that aren't exogenous testosterone. But I would doubt if Dennis was cycling off test like we suspect most fighters do
