At first I was just a little annoyed. Then I became upset. Now I’m offended. Why, you ask? This Saturday Anderson Silva will take on Chael Sonnen for the UFC middleweight championship for a second time. Many people feel Sonnen can beat Silva because of his first performance against him.

What EVERYONE seems to conveniently forget is that after Silva beat Sonnen via submission Sonnen tested positive for steroids. Sonnen had an elevated testosterone level of 16.9:1.

Let me re-type that…16.9:1! That’s more than heavyweight Alistair Overeem’s positive test of 14:1. But no one ever seems to mention this.

Does anyone think that maybe just maybe the steroids Sonnen was on might have helped him in his fight with Silva? Since then Sonnen has been approved for TRT (testostorone replacement therapy) a controversial topic in the MMA community. Sonnen was caught cheating and no one ever brings it up. It shouldn’t just be offensive to me but also to fighters and fight fans everywhere.
