He hasn’t been caught/failed any tests has he? Obviously he looks like he must be taking but whilst he’s in the pool and being regularly tested you have to give him the benefit of the doubt no?

Damn, this was the fighter I couldn't name. He was getting some attention. Not as much as Johnny Walker, but you could tell he has potential.

His manager, Walid Ismael (amazing) released a statement saying hes the most tested fighter in Brazil and he hasn't failed a test yet. I dont believe he had another reason the fight was scrapped. 

 

Just the messenger...

This is such a juicy sport. 

Almost all sports are juicy to some degree.

Maybe they should overturn the most recent wins of any fighter that got caught, when they will have the ugliest record because of it ,it will calm doping down

This is a pretty good idea, but then there would be a huge divide between fans who would argue "He's still the GOAT regardless, those loses aren't real" if a fighter was caught and his record came into debate.

Years of hard work and clean diet, anyone can achieve that body and size.  Lol

Lol at any of the suckers who have spouted that line off through the years.  Yeah, geriatric Romero is all natty, bro.  Bones just finally figured out how how to eat right.  Costa just tripped and fell on a needle.

 

All you need to know is that Jon Jones, who has proven repeatedly that he clearly has no compunctions about putting foreign substances in his body, has passed many tests.  That is clear proof that the testing procedures are a farce.  Just let them all juice till their hearts content (and till their hearts explode).

Yeah, I remember when he looked like this on TUF: Brazil 3. He gassed out in like a round, and got his ass beat.

Well, it IS a clear sign. But so far from the only one! Many MMA guys that got caught had no impressive physiques. Same for a lot of endurance and olympic sport athletes that tested positive.

It must be bodybuilding that make AAS and muscle mass so much associated in people's mind - even though as I initially mentioned, it is a sign for sure, let's be honest here.

As for Costa, it most likely is the reason the fight is off but let's wait shall we? Otherwise, what's the point of the so-called secrecy if we all know it anyway?

Dudes, I take roids (Test E, Anavar & Tren) & lift 5 days a week. I throw in a Cross Fit session too. I weigh all my food & I have done this for many years. I struggle to get in that shape. Im sure he would use a cutting compound (NPP Tren?)

They train as a full time job, too.  Probably helps.  With the roids, obviously.

That picture posted in this thread of what he looked like a year before the juice is evidence enough for the eye test. Anyone who thinks he did it with nothing but a clean diet and exercise is a fucking moron.

People who think romero is natural probably thought romero isnt wasnt on gear.

costa was pretty obvious.... heres a hint.

Izzy called him a juice monkey he knew. Think everybody knew.

other than kron gracie and damian maia and a few other bjj based brazilians all the brazilians are on gear or have been.

The list off non users sure as hell would be a lot shorter than list of brazilian users

Isn't your first sentence saying the same exact thing?
