Junior dos Santos all but accuses Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem of taking performance enhancing drugs

April 6, 2011 All MMA News, UFC

UFC heavyweight number one contender, Junior dos Santos could find himself in an awkward position this week after week after seemingly accusing both his UFC 131 opponent, Brock Lesnar and Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem of taking performance enhancing drugs.

Speaking via UFC Sem Limites dos Santos said:

“No I’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, they’re really big. As Mario (Yamasaki) said, a lot of people use them but a lot of people don’t. I’m someone who has never used (PEDs), I think I came in the good phase of MMA and I’ve never used them.”

“Cigano” will go head to head with Lesnar on June 11th in the main event of UFC 131, a fight that will determine who will challenge Cain Velasquez next for his heavyweight title. Will more talk of possible drug use surface in the build-up to this one or have the Brazilian’s comments simply been taken out of context? Tell us what you think…

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking.
