Hall of Shame: Banned substances in MMA
There has been a lot about steroids in MMA over the last little while. But it is really hard to find a list of athletes that have tested positive.
Those who are testing positive are giving this sport a bad name. They need to be identified publicly, their records questioned, and monitored by us the public. I don't care if it is a famous fighter, or a nobody, we need to know who they are.
So, I am proposing this Hall of Shame because it pisses me off.
I think Bullshido is the place that a list like that could find a home as a thread in the forums. I am limiting myself to fighters who have tested positive for a banned performance enhancing substance. Each name has the substance, or result, and a link to an article about the positive test. Feel free to add to the list.
Here is the beginning of a list:
- ** Josh Barnett, tested positive in 2009 for Drostanolone
** Thiago Alves, tested positive in 2007 for a diuretic, Spironolactone
