    Griffin - roids
    Bonnar - roids
    Irvin - roids
    Diaz - marijuana (yes I already know, but still illegal.)
    Chael x 2 - roids

    Dude fought 6 times when his opponents were using a banned substance. He gets a pass. If Mark Hunt pops for roids, he should get a pass too.

    Silva still GOAT!

    Nope. Cheating is cheating. And I used to be a huge Anderson fan.

    Sorry, but no.
    I'll always remember the great moments, but he fucked up greatly... Again...
    Should have retired a legend after the Bonnar fight

    He wasn't fighting any of them, he was fighting Gastelum.

    Funniest thing about this post is that even with Roids most of those guys sucked.

    I see it differently. I give all of those fighters a pass because of Anderson.

    2 x cheat, just like his fellow broke dick buddy, Juicehead Jones.

    I don't dislike Andy near as much as Jones, but he will always have a * next to his name now.

    No. Just because many cheat, it doesn't make it right.

    He's still top 5 all time even if he took TRT, Steroids and a magic alien drug. Arbitrary to point the finger at illegal PED's when legal substances give advantages as well.

    He got busted, people will always use that against him and rightfully so.

    But there's another thing people can´t deny. if you make a list of fighters who have juiced, the list would have a thousand names.

    Now here´s the list of fighters juiced or not who have done what he has:

    I'm not going to rake Silva over the coals because he uses steroids.

    I've suspected him of using steroids for over a decade now, and just as well assumed he was fighting plenty of opponents who also used steroids. That's a wash....

    What I will rake him over the coals for is being a 2 faced lying scumbag all these years. He made some very hard speeches on fighters who use PED's and said they should be banned for life if they're even caught once. He also used PED's as an excuse to not have to fight Chael Sonnen and continue to duck him for a while.

    The guy is a fraud and has always been a slimeball.
