It's ok if you cry, believe in Jesus and are going to fight in Nevada. As long as you you don't fight anywhere else. Also made a new BFF.

Chael in the other hand doesn't plan to fight in Nevada and didn't cry.

But in all seriousness the evidence was damning, he blatantly went doctor shopping and was found with a shitload of different Peds in his blood.

Right, you can't 'suspend' someone for an infraction that occurred when they weren't licensed. However, couldn't they have used it as a reason to deny the license and tell him to come back in 6 months to re-apply?

The NSAC is giving Vitor 20 feet of rope and asking him where he wants to be hanged. If Vitor has been abusing PEDs to the degree that a lot of us suspect, he'll have a hard time maintaining his body and passing the testing the USADA is going to do on him.

In any case, as suspensions are typically retroactive to the test date, Vitor essentially got 10 months.

Vitor had high levels of Testosterone. Fine. He should be suspended.

Chael failed 2 tests in a short time period, including pissing hot for HGH. There's no excuse in the world he can give as to why he had HGH in his system. He was not prescribed it. He doesn't *need* it. There's no legit reason what so ever that he had HGH in his system. He was clearly cheating, and using something far more potent (and illegal) than TRT,

But I do find it funny how the Chael fans, in their dying breaths, feel the need to try and bring down a Brazilian.

Yeah, Vitor had high levels of T in his system. Still not as high as Chael had when he failed after the first Anderson fight. And Chael was popped 2 more times for banned substances. Do you Chael fans think that maybe that might have some kind of something to do with the 2 year ban?

Not to mention Marc Ratner getting a high paying job with Zuffa lmao. These 2 orgs are obviously in bed with each other and are corrupt as shit. Chael is just being used as a sacrificial lamb since he's done fighting anyways, he's just laying low for now and will be back with Zuffa as a commentator or something by the end of the year or early next year.

Chael tested positive for 5 substances he was not prescribed for.
Vitor tested positive for having too much of a substance he was prescribed for......
Vitor got 10 months, Chael 2 years.
Doesn't seem overly unfair to me.

I am not sure that this is true.

The substance Vitor had too much of was an anabolic steroid. He had an exemption to inject testosterone (in all likelihood because his previous steroid use had wrecked his normal testosterone production), and then he was caught abusing that therapy.

Vitor not being punished for that seems very mild given the treatment Chael received. For the record, I think Chael got what he had coming, I am just bewildered that almost immediately afterward, the commission basically ignores Vitor's steroid abuse.

Testosterone is "super juice".
