    Apparently someone close to him claims that Chad has a skin issue in which he takes a skin cream to treat it and that caused the failed ped test. He just posted this picture on instagram.



    Are you more inclined to believe him after seeing this or no? I know most creams like that do contain some type of steroid to counteract the effects.

    Every fighter is responsible for what they put in or on their body. It's their responsibility to make sure they aren't using banned substances.

    If you have medical conditions you can apply for exemptions.

    Legit or not. There's no excuse. If it's legit it sucks. But it's completely on him.

    No!
    It is an excuse, just like BJs reason for using an IV, Machidas DHEA, Jones and Brocks estrogen blockers, blamed on tainted supplements, Andersons tainted Viagra, Mirs Kangaroomeat.

    If I tell everyone I hiked in the mountains in Nepal, and they had to fly me down because I almost died from altitudesickness, and had to take Diamox, everyone would know I was lying if I was a pro athlete.

    If I tell everyone I had issues with my stomach, so i took laxatives, everyone would know I was lying.

    These guys know they are under WADA rules now, and know what they are doing. The only ones they are fooling are some teenage fans.

    Mendes didn't fail for a steroid. It was for some growth hormone. I dunno what skin conditions are treated with growth hormone type stuff. I don't think any amount of cream put onto your skin would cause a failed test either.

    Wait, he didn't say anything about his skin? Now all of the sudden he shows off his crusty ass legs? What's his deal, they already gave him 2 years.

    Dont fighters sign some questionaire in their medicals that asks of they have anykind of conditions or if they use anykind of prescription? Its a flawed ass system if not, a dumbass person not even thinking in the slightest bit that whatever they're putting in or on their body would get them in trouble.

    Lame. Why is it coincidentally always the guys who don't pass the eye test who seem to require "creams, wiener pills, kangaroo meat, and tainted supplements"?

    I don't think using a steroid cream for a rash would even get into your system enough to cause a failed drug test, and if it did, why in the shit would you use it knowing you have a steroid test coming up and not tell anybody?

    Also, he wasn't making a bunch of excuses when he was caught. He owned up to it being his mistake, and said he'd eat his punishment.

    Yes, for every drug test and pre fight medical they're supposed to list all medications and supplements they're taking. That's why Anderson got sanctioned for benzos: they aren't banned by WADA, but at the same time, no commission in the world would want you fighting while on them. He didn't list them, they came up on the test, and he got in shit. Though considering they found steroids too, probably not much more than he was already in.

    GHRP-6 is not a steroid. GHRP-6 does not treat skin issues. His excuse is lame as shit.

    If the skin cream has banned steroids in it (many prescription skin creams are steroids) then maybe there is some merit to it but then again he should have told USADA everything doctors had prescribed and they would have told him that he should have applied for a TUE before taking it. I doubt this is really the situation but I guess it's possible.

    The only excuse any fighter has is that they took a supplement that said it was safe, had no banned substances on the ingredients list but actually did have banned substances or traces of those substances in them. USADA shouldn't have a list of banned substances, they should have a list of supplements that they approve.

    Exactly. I don't know of any growth hormones used for skin conditions. It's normally topical steroids like corticosteroid creams. Even then you're not going to get popped for it.

    As Chael said. You find out what you got popped for and you hop on google to search for whatever excuse you can find. If it looks innocent = that's the one. If I can gain sympathy = gold.

    Agree except for BJ. He took the IV during a BJJ tourney, which was perfectly legal, and then decided to un-retire a couple of months later, but not enough time had passed since he used the IV. I think it was a valid excuse, and that's why he only got 6 months and not 2 years.

    Edit. Ok apparently my whole perspective on this is completely wrong. I remember hearing this shit when it first happened, so maybe I just read some early bullshit report. But apparently none of this BJJ tourney shit ever happened. My bad.

    I love BJ, and of course it is a reason they only give him 6 months, so they must know something we don't. Still, he could have used it to clear his system from steroids, and that is what I expect is the reason. Still, I am happy he got only 6 months, so we can see his comeback soon.
