UFC Fighter Tim Sylvia busted for winny
taken from the ufc site:
Pursuant to the terms of his prior suspension, former Ultimate Fighting Championship Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia is anxiously awaiting satisfactory test results indicating an absence of performance enhancing drugs in his system.
In anticipation of the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s requirement for 2004 licensing, Sylvia took a preliminary test several weeks ago, that still indicates miniscule amounts of the substance detected after his September 26, 2003 bout. Sylvia insists, and the results indicate, that the possible small trace amounts found in his system go back to his first and only use of the agents taken over nine months ago. Because the NSAC had ordered Sylvia to provide satisfactory results before fighting again, Sylvia has requested that he be given until the last possible opportunity to obtain accurate results. This request is based upon a belief that trace amounts can linger in an athlete’s fat cells long after usage has occurred. Sylvia has already submitted his urine sample and lab results for that test are expected early tomorrow.
this sux for the sport, everyone is on it but most dont get caught.

Yeah I agree that most of them juice file hell, but it still looks bad on the sport, they should just allow it.

It's the price of mainstreaming the sport - once athletic commisions have to sanction a sport - testing comes with it - it really sucks

I agree, I train with a few fighters that have faught in UFC....It's common practice to juice....BTW check out sherdog.com if you like MMA...There was a huge debate on this issue on one of their messageboards. Wether AAS should be banned or not.
