He's well spoken but some of what he says doesn't make sense, especially what he said about TRT at the end in regards to Weidman's comments.

Dude, he's not accusing anybody, Everybody knows Vitor is on TRT, he's stated that himself. It's a fact.

He skirted around the question on that one. Phone Post

Ken was juiced out of his mind whilst fighting in Japan. He's still lying, and it's hardly a revelation that he was using anyway. I don't care either way though tbh Phone Post 3.0

Yeah and what does that mean? Was he using during training and cycled off before the fight or has he never used during his MMA career?

Shamrock's advice to Weidman, regarding Vitor's TRT use, of not calling the kettle black (@2:50) was a bad way to answer that question.

Does anyone recall when did they start doing the most basic steroid testing in the UFC? As far as I recall, no testing was done in the pre-Zuffa (SEG) era. I'm not sure when or to what extent Zuffa started out testing.

Since they didn't test pre-Zuffa (correct me if I'm wrong), why would Ken even bother to go off the roids just before a fight? He admitted to roiding anyway while training.

maybe i'm reading into that too much, but it seemed like he was accusing Weidmann...

i dunno... maybe they affected his cardio or weight cut too much? although, i don't think he cut weight back then, until he came back to the UFC.

as far as the testing... maybe '07 was the start? that's when people started positive, anyway...

FWIW, i think Ken is spot-on about starting at the lower levels being effective in keeping AAS/PEDs from making the users get to the top.

the problem i see, is the cost, as most small level shows don't pay much anyway as it is, without this additional cost.

i guess i have no idea what blood or urine tests cost, tho...

Agreed ^^^^

Classic Ken Shamrock: says a few precious gem comments among a pile of half-truths.

I don't blame him for tip toeing around the issue. People (general public) can get so up in arms with overreactions and uneducated comments that why would an athlete fully come clean on the subject? He'd be instantly branded a cheater.

He didn't come clean. Like others have said, he only shook off a little layer of dirt. Phone Post 3.0
