Wasn't McGwire using items that weren't even technically "banned" at the time?

Edit: My mistake, he came clean and said he used some "low dosage" orals during his home run race with Sosa.

Stann, Militech and Johnson were already mentioned, I'd add Florian and then Bonnar to that list, and that's not even considering OG commentators like Bas, Trigg, etc.
sonnen has developed a niche, and that's all well and good for him, but among the people I personally, physically know, the guys that like him most are the guys who are proud of being a redneck and 9 times out of 10 want the American guy to win. they got into sonnen at first because Anderson was foreign, didn't speak English and came off as an aloof douche. With sonnen, they can pretend they're in on his joke, and the xenophobia/class discrimination/racism are just a bonus.
Personally, I find that to be the opposite of what I want to be viewed as, as an American.
That being said, there are a shit ton of neo-redneck-trendsters out there, and he's far more likely to keep his job catering to them than lose it.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

Not gonna lie I liked Mir when he was doing it for WEC.
Mir was good at first. He quickly became very biased towards one fighter.
