04:08 PM ET 03.12 | Stephan Bonnar finally spoke up on why he failed a steroids test after his UFC 153 loss to Anderson Silva. He said he took them after a second stem cell procedure, and before he got the call for the biggest fight in his career. "Believe it or not, there are some therapeutic uses to some of the banned substances," Bonnar said. "Bottom line, I wanted to get my strength back. I was very weak. My body didn't feel good, my joints didn't feel good. That was my goal."
