    I live in Tj’s hometown of Angels Camp and the excuses have began.
    None of this I heard directly but rather from others. Supposedly the excuse amongst relatives and friends is that TJ is anemic and took
    EPO for his low iron. Haven’t heard a single thing about this throughout his career but watch it be an angle for a reduced suspension.
    In my mind banned is banned.
    As of now this is just a rumor around town and nothing that I’ve heard TJ said himself.

    Does TJ's family hate him as much as everyone else?

    It really felt like damage control to me. I don’t believe it personally but found it
    This should be expected on here. I guess I could just throw out names
    of random citizens you wouldn’t know to make it legit. I don’t personally buy it. That’s why I emphasized “rumor”.

    No one cares. His legacy is forever tainted. Everything his detractors have said about him, including myself has been proven correct. The guy is a douchebag who will do anything to win, including fucking over friends, training partners, and opponents to gain an edge

    How come old fighters look old and slow? While i see 50 year old men outside UFC being jacked training like a 20 year old.

    Why didn't he declare it then?

    As someone who was on EPO.

    You take it once a day for a certain amount of time with a blood thinner.

    E.g heparin else it's super dangerous.

    If he was a blood thinner would have came up in tests too.

    I don’t know any details. Who knows if TJ himself has even offered this excuse. But of course people will make excuses for him.

    I dont think a sentence reduction is possible at this point. They were even going back and testing old samples

    He really seems to be just accepting and admitting to it
