you think many Pro NHB fighters use roids? would it be more prevalent in a FIGHTING sport event as opposed to any other sports?? To me it sure as hell seems like a lot of them would/have. (just by personal observation)
How are the drug testings for events such as pride and UFC? I dunno much about roids but how much athletic/strength boost do roids give to the human body in a single use??
Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

I'd be very surprised if NHB fighters where not taking anabolic steroids.Most of them do I'm sure of it.

I'd put the % of NHB fighter taking roids at close to 95%.

Agreed, more so in the over 200lbs category.
For many reason, the obvious ones aside, steroids allows you to do those infamous 6 hours a day, 6days a week, workouts that EVERYONE seems to do in the "pro" ranks.

I believe they take roids during training,and when they know they have afight coming up, they stop it for a vertain peroid before the fight. This way i heard the roids are out of their system and is not shown up on tests.
Also, i heard quite a few fighters take speed or cocaine before a match, makes the fuckers hard to take down or finish. Ronin69 youve been a bouncer i believe. You found people on drugs of that kind are fucking hard to take down? And thats just an ordinary person, little lone a trained MA of great skill.

Yep , for sure, drugs like coke and PCP make them feel very little pain.
As for the cycling of the steroids, the reason for getting off them for a bit is not ONLY to NOT get caught, but also to allow your body a period of "rest" than you get back on them and BAM, rock n roll.
But I can tell you this, steroids do NOT make them impervious to pain and they do mare harm than good, specially physcologically during the "off cycle". They get so depressed and "weak", they are loke babies.

Its not THAT much... Id say maybe 50-60%. UFC tests for it, but Pride for example doesnt... so it varies from organization to organization. But I think 50-60% is about right. 95 is way too high

Body builders and power lifters are tested ALL the time, and they are ALL on them.
Testing is irrelevant.

it's not 95% and it's not 60%. It's probably in the range of 80% IMO
