    USADA announced today that UFC® athlete Fabricio Werdum, of Redondo Beach, Calif., has tested positive for a prohibited substance and received a two-year sanction for his anti-doping policy violation.

    Werdum, 41, tested positive for trenbolone and its metabolite epitrenbolone following an out-of-competition urine test conducted on April 25, 2018. Trenbolone is a non-Specified Substance in the class of Anabolic Agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, which has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.

    I think that's the first time I've seen a UFC guy get popped for tren.

    Talk about diving in to the deep end, he could have done wonders with a little d-bol and some test. Crazy that he went with tren right off the cuff with a physique like this hmmm fabricio-werdum-ufc-198.jpg

    No way to get around the testing in UFC. Rogan said fighters can be tested anytime of the day 24/7.

    "Substantial assistance" gets around the suspensions, however.

    What does that mean? Substantial assistance?

    There's another word for "substantial assistance". I just can't remember what it is called :rolleyes:

    This is how Werdum described the deal offered by USADA to provide "substantial assistance":

    “What surprised me the most was at the end of the interview, it was something that I found absurd,” Werdum told Combate. “They said, ‘Werdum, here’s the thing: If you tell on someone …’ It was what you could call ‘delacao premiada’ (plea bargain). ‘Werdum, if you tell on someone’ – using the slang, if you’re a snitch – ‘we’ll shorten your suspension. Because you’re going to have to pay something. Even if we find the substance in any of the products we test, even if we find it, you’ll have to pay something.’

    “… For the guy to make me an offer like that, to snitch on someone, that goes against my principles. I can’t tell on someone. Even if I knew, I wouldn’t do it. How am I going to snitch on someone to make it better for me, to lower my suspension or whatever?”

    Werdum said his interview with USADA was a five-hour ordeal at a hotel in Denver. He said he flew from Los Angeles, and USADA representatives flew from New York.

    “I felt like a criminal, actually,” Werdum said. “I know I didn’t do anything, but it felt like I was a criminal, like (I was talking to) the police. Two USADA guys, a detective analyzing me all the time. Both were USADA. I felt so bad, you know? Like, I didn’t do anything. Why am I doing this? And it lasted five hours.

    “There even came a point when they were like, ‘Werdum, let’s rest a little. Do you want to rest?’ I said, ‘No, I don’t want to rest. I want to answer whatever you ask – I have nothing to hide.'”

    Jon Jones took the offer. Look how fast he got back on a fight card. Wonder who he ratted out?

    I'm more curious about who/what he could give up over the next 3 years -->

    "If the Athlete or other Person fails to continue to cooperate and to provide the complete and credible Substantial Assistance upon which a suspension of the period of Ineligibility or other Consequences was based......"

    He's obligated to provide "substantial assistance" to USADA until July 28, 2021.

    USADA owns him.

    No one is talking about that.
