It is what it is.
Ya he hasn’t looked the same since
Sherdog double standards. Ortega does it and everyone sweeps it under the rug but back in the day when Sean Sherk tested positive the WHOLE community jumped down his throat with pitchforks and torches.
Yes, I even got a pic of it:
Good Guy Ortega was just taking the hit to save his homie (who was clearly already near OD'd on roids judging by the rage on his face)
TRT-City is doing it for the kids breh.
He was also used "orwellian language" when he spoke about it's use and how it is taken.
Remember when almost every professional athlete was on some kind of PED otherwise they wouldn't be professional athletes?
It's an honesty personal integrity thing. You state you won't ingest these substances.
Either your word means something to you or it doesn't.
I really worry for him and hope this is his last fight at 145...
It's just really unhealthy.
What irritated me was that he took drostanolone (masteron) and this is what he said about it:
“I’ll let people hate on me for whatever reason,” Ortega told MMAjunkie. “For me it was something, I admitted – or, I publicly talked about it and said, ‘Yes, I did take something.’ I’ve never took nothing else like injectables or anything like that. It was an oral thing to make you cut weight. It’s almost Hydroxycut in a way. Or like fen-phen – remember that? I took that in order to help my weight cut, which every fighter hates weight-cutting. But I never excused no matter what it is that I took. I took full responsibility for what is it, what I did, and I did my punishment. I paid my time, and I continue with my life as anyone else does.”
So lets fact check that statement. First of all, masteron is injectable only. To my knowledge no oral form of it exists, and it cannot be absorbed orally. Second lie, it is nothing like hydroxy cut. Masteron is very much a steroid. Not a diuretic. Lie number 3, He didn't take responsibility for it. At all. He lied. Blatantly. He tried to say it was like hydroxycut.
TLDR: Brian Ortega is a lying POS.
People in the later pages of this thread quoted me and brought up superdrol, while superdrol is in the same drug family as drostanolone, superdrol has been methylated, which makes it orally bioavaliable (compared to drostanolone which is not). Thus superdrol is a chemically different drug than drostanolone, has different anabolic ratings, side effects etc. It would also show up as a separate drug in any competent drug screening. I do not believe in crucifying people without evidence though, and I am also not a chemist. If someone can/cares to find proof that methylated drostanolone still shows up as regular drostanolone in a drug screen, I'd be more than happy to edit my original rant.
Owning your mistakes goes a long way. Ortega admitted it, even if he spun it, apologized, and hasn't popped since. Sherk denied it and got pissed whenever anyone mentioned it. Ortega also did it very early in his career. Sherk did it as a 30-fight veteran in a title bout. Different stakes, different consequences.
One is some average bodied Hispanic American who comes off as quiet & "humble" (betas fall head over heels for these types, helps them relate to the athlete: "hey, he's shy & flabby, just like me! Perhaps I could be a pro fighter!), the other was an Aryan prototype who was built like a bodybuilder & was a jock bully alpha that picked on/ignored said betas in high school.
Just wait, pretty soon you'll see some of these cucks come out of the woodwork and reply to this comment calling sherk short, t-rex arms, etc
pretty much this
damn Ortega just got drostanolowned
Honestly didn't even know he did lol
