A scientific study needs to be commissioned on the existence of steroids in MMA mats because the entire sport may be on some kind of steroid. There was a time and place in the MMA world when a steroid accusation would catch the community off guard; now it just comes with the shit talking territory. The latest Conor McGregor is on steroids story comes with a twist.
Do not sound your homemade MMA Conspiracy Theory Alert button just yet but keep it close by. According to part time Bellator MMA fighter and full-time Bellator Kickboxing/Glory kickboxer Joe Schilling, McGregor is now stuck fighting at a higher weight class due to his past steroids transgressions. Mind. Blown.
Schilling has trained with Diaz crew in the past so he may have the inside scoop on all this steroid talk. Transcription courtesy of LowKick MMA
“If we’re going to talk about weight-gains and why he would want to stay at that weight class I don’t think it’s going to be that different when Nate talks about how you’re on steroids,”
“Now, you can’t get back down to that weight class, you’re stuck at that weight division because you got on steroids, but we’ll wait for Nate to say that, not me.”
The UFC 200 main event between Nate Diaz and McGregor will be contested at 170 pounds rather than lightweight and the reason may be steroids? Like filling in “C” on ever answer of your multiple choice test, when in doubt the MMA answer to that MMA question is probably steroids.
