I feel like there was a time in MMA when talking about PEDs was really convtroversial. Guys wouldn’t talk about it because they were afraid of being outed themselves, or afraid of repercussions to the sport, which was in a precarious position for years. MMA always felt like it was teetering on the brink of extinction, but now that the UFC is in a more solid position and the failed drug tests are making headline news a lot more than the fists are flying. Now the accusations of abusing drugs are flying and theres no stopping them.
The latest comes from UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo. Aldo is slated to square off against Chad Mendes yet again for the UFC Featherweight Championship and had to postpone the fight due to a shoulder injury that he suffered. This led to Mendes claiming that Aldo was ducking him and, well, Aldo’s reply is one that is far from tempered. Aldo replied claiming that he might have more injuries because he doesn’t take the same “supplements” as Mendes takes.
He follows up by calling him a slang word for female reproductive organs. Well, this has worked in the past to sell fights, right? This might work as well. These guys could learn something from the late, great Macho Man Randy Savage. Be a Man, Hulk.
