    Contemplated suicide after her losses after buying in to her own ridiculous hype

    How good does coming out of 2 ACL and 1 groin surgeries while having only 61 seconds inside the octagon for almost 5 years Dominick Cruz 5-round win against TJ Dillashaw look now since TJ got cuaght for EPO ?


    Which type of matchup do you think has more potential to be more entertaining ? Elite Grappler vs Elite Grappler or Elite Striker vs Elite Striker ? . IMO its elite grappler vs elite grappler (if they decide to strike) since "elite strikers" will be hesitant to engage with each other in striking.



    Also Barao is the biggest fall from grace . Hendricks until his recent loss at bareknuckle he wasnt losing to exact nobodies.

    Poll added, I see...

    Well, as much as I despise Hendricks, he never failed a test. We all know he was juiced, but he’s never failed.

    TJ just killed his career AND reputation. Hendricks might be losing in BKB, to uhhh to ghey pron stars iirc.

    But he doesn’t have the stigma of being busted, and stripped (Yes TJ would have been stripped as a cheater).

    The snake has fallen further, and over time I expect harder.

    And no matter how fat Hendricks ever gets. He’s taller than the snake. So that’s a definite win.

    Just my opinion.

    tj without a doubt. he's ruined for life because of this. and he's at an age now, where another 2 years means he's probably done at his weight class anyways. now thats 2 years of inactivity.

    TJ went from almost being two weight champ to getting knocked out by a 125er and being a no weight champ, all whilst on EPO. No question it's TJ.

    Dillashaw, he was on his way of being a 2 division champ, THEN gets KO in 30 secounds THEN banned for 2 years basically the rest of his prime or career.

    Johnnyboy got fat and USADA'D

    Barao just didnt evolve with the sport

    Erick Silva, the young prospect seems to be struggling.

    So? She still had a huge huge fall from grace. Just because she's doing something else now doesnt mean it didn't happen.

    TJ hasn't hit the floor yet. I'm expecting him to come back, lose and disappear into the shadows as the biggest fraud ever.

    She lost fair and square.

    TJ attempted to drop to another class he had no business fighting in, lost, vacated his belt suddenly, popped, then had previous samples tested which proved he'd been cheating for a while.

    To TJ cutting edge sport's science was code for presumably undetectable PED.
