    He got popped for Methadone (Opiod) and Nandrolone (Testosterone)

    He said he failed because he was taking medicine prescribed by a doctor for, “swollen pituitary glands in his brain,”
    My question is, which medicine? AND How the heck would commission allow a 52 year old with a damaged brain, get in the ring?

    I wish he would just come clean like Mirko and Chael BUT, he probably still wants to fight and cannot afford a 2 year suspension.

    Is shamrock poor ? If so is there a story about how it happened. I know when he was in the UFC grey weren't paying their top stars as much as these days but he also had a decent wwe stint during the attitude era

    I think he was living in a van post WWE.

    I came in here looking for good leads on tainted supplements, leaving disappointed.

    Nandrolone is not testosterone.

    Deca is nandrolone. Its a different anabolic steroid than testosterone.

    He has tested positive for deca previously as well.

    Tested positive because of a living death.

    Deca stays detectable in your system for like a year. It is amazing for people, especially older guys at it contributes to collagen production and helps the joints.

    I think he is at the age and confidence level where he cant compete without using certain compounds.

    He probably doesnt give a shit if he gets popped.

    I never watched his WWE days but my opinion of the possible brain damage excuse has changed.

    I have absolutely no problem believing that Ken Shamrock has a damaged brain. Not one problem.

    It seriously sucks that he's still going out there taking a beating to get paid at 52.
