    Default Mac Danzig: 90 per cent of fighters have used PEDs

    Mac Danzig: 90 per cent of fighters have used PEDs

    Around 90 per cent of professional MMA fighters are using some sort of performance-enhancing substances, claims UFC lightweight Mac Danzig.

    The infamously morose Danzig levelled the accusation during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, although he didn’t say where he had got his figures from.

    “I know a lot of these people and I train them and I train with them. I would say at least sixty per cent are on them all the time and around 85 to 90 per cent have tried them… these guys cycle the stuff and they know how long it will take to get out of their body. I’m also talking about HGH - Human Growth Hormone - which isn’t tested for right now,” he drawls.

    * I am suprised these comments took so long to make it to the mma media. Danzig made these claims over a month ago on the Rogan podcast.

    Does Danzig have a motive to misrepresent the numbers or is this an accurate view?

    This just in: 89% of stated statistics are made up, 97% of the times.

    No way. If you read it on the internet it must be true. Right?

    Whenever somebody says something like this, it automatically makes me think that THEY are part of that percentage that has used PEDs...

    Agreed. "98% of fighters use PEDs...but not me!" smells too fishy for me. And Im a big Danzig fan.

    It is what it is I guess, untill they start doing harder tests shit like this will happen.

    Or that they're bitter that "everyone" else has an advantage... Danzig is a health nut from what I recall; can't imagine he's only eating organic beans but shooting up steroids.

    You don't know anything about him, yet you are making an assumption about him. How intelligent is that?

    Do you know why he is a vegan?

    If you don't want to talk out of your ass and actually want to know who he is then:

    #267 - Mac Danzig, Brian Redban from JoeRogan on Vimeo.





    This is the interview from which the article came.

    It is a hyperbole, of course. But, I do think a large number of established fighters abuse HGH, as it does not have the stigma of TRT AND it does not get tested for.

    No. It was a candid discussion on wide-ranging topics.

    You are likely talking bad about him to make yourself feel better by spewing negativity, that or you have a poor sense of humor.

    Danzig talked about wanting to take steroids in a part of his career where he was failing because it was suggested to him. Danzig contemplated it but did not want to be a fake individual.

    You can gain and maintain muscle without eating meat or drinking milk, despite what the media wants you to think.

    Have you not heard of rice/pea protein? Hemp protein? Come on now.
