    Wondering. Cuz, wow, that’d be noble. Ya know, presser, back off to get right, give themselves an NC and relinquish a purse from the previous fight.

    Everyone else just seems to copy & paste the same “apology” after trying to invent a new excuse... usually lumped in with some nonsense regarding their imaginary friend...

    Does hiding under the cage count?

    IIRC Cro Cop admitted he might test positive for something but that's the closest I can think of something

    Cro cop never tested positive, he was suspended for admitting he took something

    'Noble' is a stretch cuz you're still a cheater, but you got the BS out of the way which I guess is pretty cool for fans and the org.

    Didn’t machida confess to taking something.....but it didn’t come up in the USADA tests?

    I might be remembering it wrong...

    Edit: no he tested positive. He just claimed he didn’t realise it had recently been put on the ban list. My bad

    Didn't Machida tell USADA he took a contaminated supplement? Pretty much outed himself.

    Why cheating if you're honest?

    He confessed because he assume he was going to fail the test......which he didn't.

    Shows how reliable those tests are.

    Hermes Franca released a statement ahead of the commission's announcement that he (and Sherk) tested positive. Citing steroid usage to recover from an injury during camp. Still that was after he was informed by the commission.

    No it shows cro cop was honest and the hgh shot he got was therapeutic and not an obscene dose. He was specifically tested for hgh after and nothing came up

    It wasn’t a contaminated supplement. He put on his USADA deceleration form that he took 7-keto-dehydroepiandrosterone and he played dumb that he didn’t know if was a banned substance.

    It was a listed ingredient on a supplement he was taking.

    MTV's True Life: I'm on steroids. Some small org guy was cycling and had his fight during the filming. Not sure of the org or how they would respond to that kind of thing.
