02:11 PM ET 12.27 | UFC middleweight turned light heavyweight Chael Sonnen was a guest Wednesday evening on The Jim Rome Show on Showtime. Sonnen, who is on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), had strong words for Juan Manuel Marquez and his physique after the Mexican boxer knocked out Manny Pacquiao earlier this month. "Pacquiao got hit by a guy who miraculously went through puberty a second time at 39 years old. He got hit by a guy that showed up with more power at 39 than he had in any of the previous fights. He had a 6 pack that he never had before. There's two tests that you have, Jim. You've got the pee test, but you've also got the visual test. When you take your robe off and you get in the ring that's your first test. And to act as if all of us didn't go, 'Something's going on there.'"

Of course no one talks about how Pac had been fading and looking not nearly the fighter he was. Marquez always had KO power. Of course he added muscle mass since his days as a featherweight, he moved up in weight. Pac got careless and paid for it. Stop accusing every athlete unless you have real proof. Just worry about yourself and the tiny purses you make.
