    It's the new drug testing.

    They apparently require fighters to give so much blood, they lose some strength come fight night.

    We all saw the same thing and most of us have the same suspicious. C'mon! All these threads saying the same damn thing.

    It's interesting how everyone is dog piling on E. Silva, but I didn't see anything on how much Jake Ellenberger has shriveled up. Pull up an image of him vs. Sheilds, and then his last fight. He too is working hard on his cardio by cutting muscle mass and reducing explosive output.

    More fat on his body. Less musclemass, lost speed and explosive power, did not want to pull the trigger on his strikes.. less confident.

    wonder why

    There was definitely a difference and yes, could be drug-testing related I guess.

    Looked different but never popped to my knowledge. I'd leave it alone

    Lots of guys haven't been caught but look so different but they don't mention slacking off in training.
