Which UFC Hall of Famer admits steroid use on Inside MMA tonight?

June
11

Just got this bit of info from an HDNet press release:

ARE STEROIDS AN ISSUE IN MMA?  MMA HALL OF FAMER ADMITS USE AND HALLMAN STUNS PANEL IN A MUST SEE DISCUSSION ON TONIGHT’S “INSIDE MMA”
Fighters make strong revelations about steroid use in the sport and usage during their careers – TONIGHT, Friday, June 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET

Tonight’s groundbreaking episode of HDNet’s “Inside MMA” presents a surprisingly frank discussion on a topic rarely talked about in Mixed Martial Arts – steroid use.  How many fighters have used the substances to further their careers and how many are still using them today?

Panel guests are UFC stars Dennis Hallman and Pat Barry and Strikeforce’s Babalu Sobral.

Who could it be?

There are only 8 UFC hall of famers.

Dan Severn – His physique has never hinted at any type of steroid use, so I will rule him out immediately.

Charles “Mask” Lewis – Passed away in a car wreck last year. Ruled out.

Mark Coleman – Coleman did spend a good chunk of his career in Pride, where steroid use was supposedly rampant.  I doubt it’s him, though.

Ken Shamrock – My money is on him. More on that below.

Randy Couture – No way, no how. There wouldn’t be a chance that Couture would still be fighting at his age if he abused steroids earlier in his career.

Royce Gracie – Already tested positive for steroids, and vehemently denied any usage. I doubt he would embarrass the Gracie legacy by openly admitting steroid use.

Chuck Liddell – I doubt he would admit steroid use on the eve of headlining a PPV.

Matt Hughes – This gave me a chuckle because the UFC doesn’t even have him listed as a hall of famer on their website yet. Anyway – no. Hughes has always been a small welterweight.

I’d bet the house on Ken Shamrock. Look at the size of this guy during his stint in the WWE (WWF back then). He also spent a good chunk of his career in Pride. Shamrock has nothing to lose buy admitting steroid use, seeing as his career is all but over anyway.

I guess we will find out for sure tonight.

    I totally agree about Ken!

    Done with MMA, Football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Underwater Basket weaving, ha,ha,ha etc.

    I am tired of all the cheaters and steroids. If a sport cannot do olympic style blood and urine testing for hgh, steroids, etc, then they are not going to get my money. Look at baseball. Even though the sport is boring and has many problems, steroids killed baseball’s revenue. I see the empty stands and see how cameras try to manipulate seating shots to make it appear there is a full stadium. A real man stands on his own two feet for what he is and struggles to change his weaknesses into strengths, not cheat with steroids. All those mma cheaters are just a bunch of losers, and regardless of the media hype or money thrown they will always look like that in everyone’s eyes, period. Why don’t I give everyone a bat who didn’t take steroids to even the playing field. Americans know their “pro” sports are tainted, and we don’t need to wait for congress to fix you. Everyone speaks of mma like it is a circus rather than a sport because of all the controversy. You are going the same route as fake wrestling or strongman competitions that make no money because of steroid losers. It is cause and effect. Less fans, less attendance at other venues like bars, means less money for all businesses around. Regulate steroids before it destroys your source of income. I know I am not going to any events until you fix this crap.

    List of Steroid Cheaters, some are still with their organizations after a slap on the wrist.ex Chris Leben

    JOSH BARNETT (now with strikeforce), TIM SYLVIA, KIMO LEOPOLDO, NATE MARQUARDT, VITOR BELFORT, STEPHAN BONNAR, PAWEL NASTULA, KIT COPE, JOHNNIE MORTON, ROYCE GRACIE, JORGE ORTIZ, PHIL BARONI, SEAN SHERK (still with UFC), HERMES FRANCA, ANTHONY TORRES, BILL MAHOOD, ADAM SMITH, JASON WINTHERS, RUBEN VILLAREAL, DENNIS HALLMAN, ALEXANDER CRISPIM, CARINA DAMM, ALEXANDRE NOGUEIRA, ANTONIO SILVA, EDWIN DEWEES, CHRIS LEBEN (still with UFC), KIRILL SIDELNIKOV, KEN SHAMROCK, JOSH BARNETT, COLE PROVINCE, CHAEL SONNEN (still with UFC), SHANE CARWIN (not caught but federal link to purchase of steroids).

    Really, you cheat you get another chance, bullshit!!!

    For everyone who supports steroid use, I don’t know what to say. You are either born a man or not, and compensating by drugs pretty much answers those questions. Everyone can see when most anyone really abuses steroids, and notes records broken, and people dying of cancer early. I hope those that support it take it and die from the stuff so the rest of us can enjoy this rock with a few less losers on it.

    Piss tests are not good enough because any cheater can use a catheter and fill his bladder with whatever at any time. The testing is also not that costly, for blood and urine, so that argument don’t fly with me either. Also sports need to publicly state who was on what whenever they fail a test. Football and baseball keep their information private other than announcing a failed PED. I hear about a steroid user and I boycott and bad mouth.

    Dana White you are a DOUCHE

  3. bad dog

    This is Sparta, and I only speak the truth.

    For those that are supporting steroid use for one reason or another, I cannot help but wonder if you actually work or get money from the UFC. I noticed my postings on Sherdog’s loser site were pulled, and did not violate any of their rules. I simply spoke the truth on steroid abuse. Dana White wants steroids and is deathly afraid of regulation. He has said it in more ways than one. All the public posts, which I support like this one, tell the truth. Most all of the posts are against cheaters and steroids. I have yet to find a post that says that guys like Sonnen should not get punished if it is proven that he took steroids. So watch these people that flat out support steroids, ridiculous.

    Congress focused on baseball, and all other sports, including Olympic testing, is on the way for a change. Blogging is good, but WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN AGAINST STEROID ABUSE. In time “pro” sports will get cleaned up.

    Wouldn’t all of you athletes who play by the rules like a chance to make money and play for pro sports. If the steroid cheaters are removed from sports, sports takes on a whole new light. I would like to be payed big money, but I am not willing to get cancer, wreck my organs and shrink my only reason for being on this planet. People who take steroids are weak and easily influenced by what others say.

    It is simple, whether they all or just some take steroids in any sport, steroids are unfair. They give you a muscle advantage, and we know it changes the game, period. Those that take steroids are losers.

    Dana White you and Sherdog are still Douchebags, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  4. steroids shop

    It’s nice to find a site you can trust. I like the privacy of shopping online, but you never know what sites are okay. This site was recommended by a friend so I tried it. The service was great! I’m becoming a frequent shopper! ;)

  5. Monkey

    whoever this guy is above is another anti steroid idiot whos lack of intelligence on the subject is totally evident. Go do your research dumb ass.
