    How true is this statement?

    Yoel, I believe is natural and never directly used steroids in his life. If you heard the podcast of Yoel's life, you would agree too. Although he was charged for alleged steroid use but it was through a contaminated supplement. Also Cuba is a very poor country,so how can he get steroids and go through cycles of use? He's a genetic beast but how true is rogan's statement?

    Very true, no steroids will make you look Cuban.

    What about an average Mike? Would it work for him?

    There's no evidence to support him using during his time with the UFC under USADA. It's entirely possible that he has been using before that, but there is no evidence. There are more factors than just usage as well, such as diet, training, etc. Also him being Cuban doesn't really factor into it, imo. Rogan is a smart dude but far from credible, especially when it comes to UFC matters.

    Go look at Lorenzo Fertitta.

    I've seen tons of average guys take roids, casually weight lift and look ridiculous in such a short time span.

    The average guy looks ridiculous relative to the AVERAGE GUY when they take roids

    Yoel looks ridiculous relative to the ridiculous

    He can look like him, but he'll never have his athletic performance

    Bisping and Dan Kelly couldn't be recreational bodybuilders and be juiced to the gills at 225lbs?

    That is correct, however it was proven to be a tainted supplement.

    I've looked through a lot of Yoel's photos. It's a unique case. I'm pretty sure I can tell a difference from when he was using and when he was not. He's basically just 2 different forms of a monster. A lot depends on the photos and when they were taken. I think yoel can easily put on muscle so if he's in peak shape he's going to look huge no matter what he takes.

    No doubt his genes make him look like a physical specimen. Let's not take away the fact that he trains his ass off. If you have not seen the Joe Rogan podcast, listen to what Yoel described Cuba as like and how they trained. It was a brutal style similar to military training...since he was a kid.

    I still think yoel has used a great bit in his early mma career. We have to remember that Joe just had him on his podcast so of course he's not going to bash Yoel too much.

    Relative to the average guy who doesn't visit the gym much, yeah , maybe.

    Yoel looks awesome. Great conditioning. Big chest and esp massive legs. But Rogan said the average guy on roids can never look like Yoel. I personally have seen and know bigger guys than Yoel.

    What is exactly considered average tho? A guy who gets off the coach and sticks a needle in him without working out? Or if you walk into a gym and you see a guy whose big.

    It's pretty easy to "stage" a tainted supplement if that's your defense before you even get caught. Not saying that's not what happened with Yoel...but a lot of fighters somehow get tainted supplements and it just doesn't make sense when you look at the big picture
