    Working the late night shift over here in the UK and just saw the news. I'm curious if any "experts" can tell me if this indicates how long he may have been using?

    Was he just using for the Cejudo fight? (which would be somewhat understandable, considering he had to drop down 10 lbs to make weight)

    Or if he has been doing it all along? Or will we never know? Either way I thought it was a great suspension, however terrible compared to Bones

    Probably since at least the first Barao fight. His technique is legit but dudes speed and cardio is unreal.

    You'll never know EXACTLY how long an athlete that has been busted has been juicing.

    Have you seen those dudes at TAM? Palmer, Mendes (pissed hot), and Faber well into his 30s? They're all shredded as fuck. Now ex TAM member TJ pisses hot too.

    I'm guessing he's been taking PEDs well before the first Barao fight.

    I think he definitely did the Cody fights, he looked like an absolute monster those fights

    He has probably been on them his whole career. The only fight where he looked like he wasn’t was when he fought Cruz. He really hit a stride after TUF.

    He hasn't trained at Alpha Male for a while and Cody tweeted in 2018 that TJ was on EPO--the specific drug he was caught using. So I'm guessing he was using before he left TAM.

    90% of UFC fighters juice. 90% of all MMA fighters in the past juiced. This should be of no real shock to anybody anymore.

    All of his MMA career, starting probably in college, and possibly even high school.

    What I was thinking too, he didn't look like a cardio freak against Walel Watson or Mike Easton. When he climbed into that cage for the first Barao fight he looked so shredded and put a beating on Barao like nothing he's ever done before and never slowed down or got tired, and has been that way ever since.

    the USADA program has been going since mid 2015

    if he was just using EPO from time to time I would expect his blood values to jump and for him to trigger the passport.

    That says to me maybe hes been microdosing the whole time to keep his values stable.. its feasible.

    90%+


    Its sad that fans even care. Steroids should be legal. Some guys literally need them to recover fast enough or they can't train. Some guys are fine without them their entire carrear.

    Who gives a shit, I just want to see the best fights. Drug testing only hurts the sport.
