Palhares: I'm clean – they can test me whenever they want


Yesterday Steve Carl was featured on the MMA Hour, saying there was a 'good chance 'WSOF 9 opponent Rousimar Palhares was on PEDs. Palhares recently cut his training camp early and headed to Vegas to take a a drug test for the NSAC, but believes the test will be no issue as he's 100% clean now:

Although cutting his training camp short to take the test in “Sin City” was somewhat of an inconvenience, Palhares says he is embracing the chance to shake any doubts about his status as a clean fighter.

“I think it’s a good opportunity to prove I’m completely clean,” Palhares recently told MMAjunkie Radio through a translator. “I’m actually happy about that. It takes a whole lot of trouble out of my way. I’m clean – they can test me whenever they want, and nothing’s going to happen.”

“I’m not upset at all,” Palhares said. “There’s positive and negatives. I get to adapt earlier. I’m sleeping well because there is always a lot of jetlag.”

We are going to keep persecuting for the sake of "cleaning up the sport" and there won't being any exciting fighters left anymore.Just remember when the sport gets even more boring and uneventful that this is what you wanted.

I could be wrong but of all fighters ever he is the one that I am the most sure that is on some form of ped. Hell I was less convinced that even reem was on something before he popped then this guy and it was pretty clear reem was juiced to extremes.

Yep. I wished they'd all shut about it. And this forum too! I understand it's so demonized they can't speak the truth, but no need to lie through their teeth though.

Why do these fighters hurt their credibility by discussing these things? They need to just not reply.

Fuck that is a scary gif. If you didn't know who he was, you'd probably think he just got done breaking the neck of a t-rex with his bare hands.
