    Machida didn't fail anything.
    he NOTED to USADA a substance that he used which became illegal (and he did not know).
    He ACCEPTED the punishment and didn't make any excuses.

    There's a huge difference between them and getting caught.

    Machida never failed a test and wasn't suspended for taking an actual steroid

    Maybe Bisping is aware of that

    One of the several USADA cases where I don't blame the fighter at all.

    I don't consider Machida at fault either but since when has that stopped Bispings mouth?

    He even accused GSP of using (although he later retracted it) when GSP has never had even a hint of failed test.

    It seems like as Bisping's bargaining power decreases, his shit talk declines accordingly.

    He thinks not trash talking his last fight will patch a career of spitting, eye poking, complaining mid fight, shit talking?

    If I remember correctly he failed it. But openly admitted he took it and just didn't know it was a banned substance and accepted his punishment willingly.

    He didn't fail for an anabolic steroid or EPO or HGH. I think it was DHEA or something like that.

    Machida called him out. Would be a good match-up of former champions... Both are near the end of the road...

    He claims he was using it to reduce stress and had nothing to do with performance enhancement.

    But to be fair, Lyoto has probably fought more people on peds than off them.

    So, your fuckin title click baited me into seeing what Bisping had to say. Apparently, he said ZERO.

    Maybe throw a question mark at the end next time.

    The fuck ?
