Whats new? do you think a mans chest can be big as a Mack truck without sustance abuse?

First off - they don't say what the substance was. There actually HAVE been fighters who tested positive for a banned substance that was in something they were taking that was NOT performance enhancing. And since this his Shields' first offense, to say he's a substance abuser is simply laughable. But then, what do we expect from a creepy face with no brain?

Laughable? He was busted. If it was pot or something harmless they would have said as they always do with that. It is far worse to the public eye to be caught with steroids with all the recent news with that. You can pull the wool over your eyes but he was caught.

Now to demonize him would be a bit extreme. They all do it or at least a real high percentage. Probably guys we are all fans of do it as well. Don't think for a minute it wasn't some kind of a PED. These guys know everything that go in their body and only the true lazy ones have some recreational drug in them when testing is close like Chavez Jr just did.
