    Well said but instead of a rock in your pocket we could go with a toothpick in your mouth.

    Well there are a lot of guys like that who become champions, so maybe you should re-look that.. as opposed to steroid uses who often lose a fight and then get caught.

    Lots of athletes achieve amazing things on steroids. Lance Armstrong, Mark Mcgwire and so on. It's a lot harder to get away with in MMA, but if the testing was more lax I bet you would have champs abusing steroids all the time.

    Actually it's a lot easier in MMA and that's why you hear about it less.

    This podcast should open your eyes, he is the guy who made the clear

    Correlation =/= causation.

    I think it probably has more to do with the fact that countries like Brazil and the US have a larger percentage of theists.

    IMO that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, ignorant post.

    wouldn't expect anything though...
    It's been a year and a half. A year. And. A half.

    Let it go. I made fun of you for saying something stupid and you're still butthurt a year and a half later? Hell, even Rampage and I laugh about some of our past exchanges nowadays.

    Stop being so sensitive.

Seriously a truly enlightened mind doesn't mind sharing his/her beliefs, but can respectfully disagree with those who hold other beliefs. Mockery of another person's religion means that person is not secure in his own beliefs.

    Now as for Henderson, I think he's very mentally strong and his heart and will has been tested and proven. I can't wait for the rematch with pettis, I think he out classes Melendez. A fight with Eddie Alvarez could be fun, but I see him taking a UD in that one too. The Aldo fight will be the fight of his life......as for Steroids. Meh, he's right it does show mental weakness and honestly I think guys who take shit are easier fighters to beat. Once you survive their initial onslaught, because those guys tend to wear down physically, mentally, and emotionally if they feel they aren't winning. in fact I think the number of fighters who get busted usually lose their fights beforehand. of course there are exceptions....
    I'm not Christian, or religious at all, and identify as agnostic. That said, thanks for laying down the law and keeping this thread back on topic.

    The Outside In Philosophy - Use outside substances (PEDs) to boost one's confidence.

    versus

    The Inside Out Philosophy - Find your own inner confidence and use that as a drug.

    Never been a fan of Bendo's preachy nature but I'm completely on board with his philosophy--I'd have to put BJ Penn in this category also.

    Maybe I'm naive, because obviously there are dominant world champions that use PEDs, but I like guys who take the "inside-out" approach to fighting rather than the "outside-in" shortcut. Guys like Chael were journeymen until they got on PEDs, and now he's a perennial top 10 contender. And isn't Vitor known for being mentally weak? No surprise he's on the stuff. Reem too.

    Obviously there's a union of mind and body, so PEDs help people win fights, but I think guys who approach shit the right way should be recognized and celebrated.

    It's funny because I always suspected that bendo used something to help him cut weight.

    I've thought the same, he's a massive guy. Just because he's "calling ppl out" on it, doesn't mean it kills all my suspicion tho. It can also be looked at more like a way to divert any suspicions from himself.

    But "innocent until proven guilty".
