Junior Dos Santos Feels PED Use Heavy Amongst The Heavyweights
It's no secret that in professional sports, the abuse of performance enhancing drugs has become quite prevalent over the last 15-20 years. In the UFC, it would seem a fighter fails a drug test once every few months and that's just the fighters that get caught using.
Top ranked heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos spoke to UFC Sem Limites about his take on the use of steroids and such in his division and although he can't be certain he speculates that most of the top heavyweights are using:
"No Iâ€™ve never seen (someone taking performance-enhancing drugs [PEDs]), but I think at Heavyweight that happens a lot for sure. When you see people like Alistair Overeem, Brock Lesnar, look at the size of those guys, theyâ€™re really big. As Mario (Yamasaki) said, a lot of people use them but a lot of people donâ€™t. Iâ€™m someone who has never used (PEDs), I think I came in the good phase of MMA and Iâ€™ve never used them."
