If steroids cause an absurd amount of grease to form of the skin in the middle of the second round, then yeah…BJ Penn may be on to something. This is directly from Kevin Iole, the only dude that can rock a Scooby Doo picture for his Twitter avatar and have the entire MMA world follow his every word. I don’t understand it, but some things in this universe are best left unexplained (like what is nougat made out of?). Here’s what Iole somehow extracted out of BJ Penn in an interview:
Penn said he believes St. Pierre uses steroids, though he concedes he has no proof. St. Pierre is arguably the sport’s most popular fighter and Penn knows that making such allegations isn’t going to win him any friends.
Penn, though, isn’t the type to be shy about offering his opinion though it may be unpopular.
“It’s just my opinion that he uses steroids,” Penn said. “That’s it.
My opinion. I do believe it. I can’t hand you any proof, but that’s my opinion.”
In an earlier conversation on the topic, Penn said, “In my opinion, he doesn’t play by the rules when it comes to steroids and growth hormones and that stuff. Look at him. He’s the worst. He looks like that every day. That’s cheating. There is a reason why there are rules against using steroids. The rest of us, we get fat, then we train and get skinny and the cycle goes over and over again. He looks the same way all the time. Come on.”
