Looking At CSAC Released Documents, UFC Fighter Chael Sonnen Steroid Suspension Should Be Upheld - Watch Kalib Run
The CSAC doesn't bust people on having high T/E ratio's, that is just a warning sign that signals them to take more tests. It just so happens that when someone's T/E ratio is that out of wack, they ALWAYS test positive for something else, because it's just not possible for someone to have a 16:1 T/E ratio naturally.
I never said he didn't have synthetic testosterone in his system. His ratio was 16:1. But you realize that there is a difference between ratios and actual levels right? His actual range of testosterone was never found to be above normal levels. Sonnen
Because TRT involves a synthetic form of testosterone administered manually, it elevates the bodyís ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone, which, in Sonnenís case, triggered a positive result for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). His test ratio was 16.9:1, where the normal threshold ratio is 4:1. However, the CSAC did cite that, while Sonnenís test results of the ratio itself were high, his actual range of testosterone was within the normal levels for adult males. |
Did he get clearance from the commission to be on TRT in the first fight? No. Did he lie about it? Most likely.
Did they find his actual testosterone levels to be higher than allowed? No.
Will he be allowed to be on TRT for the rematch? Yes.
Will he have the same levels as before? Yes.
P.S. - When you call "bullshit" on someone, make sure you don't look like an idiot first...
