    Haha, probably the most blatant use of PEDs. The guy shrunk an entire weight class of muscle as soon as USADA came around.

    PEDs? Maybe. But the angle and lighting have a lot to do with how that pic turned out. Notice how bright the lighting is compared to Silva's other appearances. Bright lighting on olive skin tone will reduce definition, which is why bodybuilders tan themselves Mexican. Same weigh ins:

    The kid is doing the right thing, getting rid of all that muscle so his cardio won't be an issue anymore. Shows how fast he's learning, he'll be fighting for the belt soon.

    He's not the only one. When I heard Alves was going to try LW. I was amazed. There are more examples to be sure.

    Give him time he's a prospect, he knew gaining all that muscle in the past years wasn't worth it cardio wise , he's still young and dumb

    Puberty is weird sometimes. He'll grow out of it.

    Probably because he has a dad bod now and is too ashamed of it to flex.

    No worries, it's common that young warriors like him do that. He is still figuring out who he is. One day he will go through puberty and become world champ.
