Science tells us PED benefits can last for "decades". Take Cyborg for example...

    Cyborg used steroids as we all know, and look at her, even without steroids she's annihilating all the competition primarily through brute force.

    Is it possible she's continuing to reap the benefits of steroid use even though she's currently clean?

    Absolutely according to a few studies... such as:
    http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-24730151

    The researchers discovered that the lifters who had once taken the drugs had a comparable number of cell nuclei in their quadriceps as athletes who were currently performing high intensity training.

    Research suggests that athletes who use steroids for a short period can benefit for their entire careers.

    Edit: Another study worth looking into : https://thinksteroids.com/news/anabolic-steroids-result-in-permanent-muscle-gains/

    A study proved there is cellular memory which makes it easier to build muscle, even if someone stops using steroids.

    Do people really need a study to reach this conclusion?

    "Even without steroids..."

    I'd give you a response but I want my account to remain intact, so.

    Yeah, we should all just go with our gut feeling instead of scientific evidence.

    I have mentioned this before as well. It's why she needs to fight at 135, because she still gets the benefit of steroids if she can bulk up.
