  Sonnen Fired From FOX Sports And UFC Broadcasting Positions

Former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen has been fired by the UFC and FOX Sports organizations from his broadcast positions. This announcement was made after Sonnen failed a second random test given by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on June 5.

Sonnen’s first failed test was on May 24 after which he announced his retirement. Sonnen was scheduled to fight UFC light heavyweight Wanderlei Silva at UFC 175 but announced his retirement after his failed test in May.

FOX and the UFC released a joint statement to announce that the UFC Tonight co-host was terminated. It was revealed that the UFC and FOX Sports organizations announced the termination of their respective broadcasting services agreements with analyst Chael Sonnen. It was added that this decision comes in light of Sonnen failing a second test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission for banned substances in June and Sonnen was previously under temporary suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing an initial test conducted in May.

In his MMA career, Sonnen has failed three drug tests with the first being after his 2010 title fight against Anderson Silva in Oakland. The MMA fighter was suspended by the California athletic commission but made false claims to have his suspension reduced.

In May this year, Sonnen tested positive for two prohibited substances and voluntarily admitted to a third banned drug after a random drug test administered on May 24 in Las Vegas. His second failed test this year was confirmed by blood and urine samples given at another random drug test that was administered on June 5 in Portland. In his first random test, Sonnen tested positive for Anastrozole and Clomiphene, which are used to provide relief to men with hypogonadism. Sonnen also claimed he used Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). In his second test, he failed for Human growth hormone (hGH) and recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO) that are prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Anastrozole (also known as Arimidex) is used as an on-cycle support drug to treat side effects of excess estrogens, which are usually associated with the use of harsh and aromatizable steroids. This post cycle therapy drug blocks the action (and not the production) of estrogen. On the other hand, Clomiphene citrate (also called Clomid) is used by athletes during the recovery phase of steroid cycles to restore the production of naturally-occurring hormones, including Testosterone, and prevent side effects of excess estrogens.

According to WADA’s description of human growth hormone, hGH is known to act on many aspects of cellular metabolism and is also necessary for skeletal growth in humans and the major role of hGH in body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) that stimulates production of cartilage cells, resulting in bone growth and also plays a key role in muscle and organ growth.

Sonnen now claims that the second failed test is because of the prescribed medications. He remarked the Commission is aware of other prescribed medications he was taking and he will not challenge their allegations. Sonnen remarked he will cooperate with the Commission and look forward to having a dialogue about how fighters who transition off Testosterone replacement therapy can avoid violating any rules.

Chael Sonnen Announces Retirement

UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen who failed a random drug test from the Nevada State Athletic Commission has announced his retirement from competitive mixed martial arts on June 11, 2014.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) found Sonnen’s sample positive for two illegal substances, Anastrozole and Clomiphene.

Clomiphene is a female infertility drug and is used by athletes and bodybuilders to prevent estrogenic side effects (such as oily skin and gynecomastia) that are associated with the use of anabolic androgenic steroids. Anastrozole (Arimidex) is medically prescribed for treating breast cancer and is used for on-cycle support by athletes while using anabolic steroids.

Sonnen, who last competed in the Light Heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, expressed frustration with the recent rule changes by NSAC regarding Testosterone replacement therapy. Explaining his positive drug test, Chael Sonnen remarked there is a transition period while getting off from TRT and he couldn’t have been more open or more transparent. He added he used perfectly legal substances that are not performance enhancing drugs or anabolic steroids. Sonnen went on to remark that he used the drugs for preventing side effects from getting off Testosterone replacement therapy and also required them for fertility reasons. Sonnen remarked doctors prescribed him Anastrozole and Clomiphene with a hope of stimulating natural testosterone production after TRT was banned by the Nevada Athletic Commission in February.

Sonnen further remarked that his legitimate medical need for estrogen blockers would not allow him to stop taking them, leaving him with no option but to announce his retirement. He thanked his fans, team members, Fox Sports, UFC executives, and Nevada State Athletic Commission board member Bill Brady and also thanked former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, whom he challenged for the title in 2010 and 2012. Sonnen said he wants to thank the single most important opponent he ever had.

In 2009, Sonnen’s career took off after he mocked Silva in public events and media interviews. Sonnen was superior to Silva through four rounds of a title fight at UFC 117 in August 2010 before he submitted to a triangle choke in the final round. After this fight, Sonnen tested positive for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio for which he was fined $2,500 and suspended for one year (until September 2, 2011) by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) though his suspension was later reduced to six months. Sonnen then revealed a diagnosis of hypogonadism and being approved for TRT. A rematch against Anderson Silva remains the highest-grossing UFC event ever held in Las Vegas. It took place at UFC 148 in July 2012 and the event drew an attendance of 15,016 and a live gate of $7 million wherein Sonnen lost via TKO in the second round.

The three-time UFC title contender started his career in May 1997 and was pulled out by the UFC from a light heavyweight bout against Vitor Belfort, scheduled for July 5 in Las Vegas, because of the failed drug test. One of the biggest pay-per-view draws in the UFC, Sonnen (28-14-1), Sonnen hosted “UFC Tonight” with Kenny Florian and also acted as an analyst for UFC live events.

However, it is essential for them to have a clear and complete knowing about the advantages and disadvantages of these drugs so that they do not end up abusing them, deliberately or inadvertently. In this piece of information, we would be accessing information on Arimidex.

Also known as Anastrozole and Liquidex, Arimidex is an antiestrogen that is used by sportsmen on serious and aromatizable steroids to control or avoid estrogenic side effects such as oily skin or acne. Scientifically, Arimidex is continually recommended by physicians for the treatment of postmenopausal women patients with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer.

A popular steroid cycle with Arimidex (Arimidex Cycle) as the post cycle therapy drug is as follows:

Week Dianabol Deca Durabolin Nolvadex Arimidex Sustanon 250
1 30 mg every day 200 mg every week 250 mg every week
2 30 mg every day 300 mg every week 250 mg every week
3 30 mg every day 300 mg every week 20 mg every day 250 mg every week
4 40 mg every day 400 mg every week 20 mg every day 250 mg every week

12 1 mg every day 250 mg every week

From the category of 3rd generating discerning oral aromatase inhibitors, Arimidex is also used to recover the production of organic testosterone (the male sex hormone) as testosterone production gets disrupted when aromatizable or severe anabolics are used during a steroid cycles.

Arimidex, also known as Anastrozole and Liquidex, is one of the most popular antiestrogens for professional athletes on anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs. This oral aromatase chemical is mainly recommended for adjuvant treatments of postmenopausal females with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancers.

In the world of professional sports that is generally dominated by use of steroids and performance improving medications, Arimidex performs an important part in managing or avoiding excess estrogen creation that could have otherwise led to adverse reactions such as greasy skin, acne, liquid storage, and gynecomastia.

Arimidex, from the class of 3rd generation selective oral aromatase inhibitors, is a commonly used drug during androgenic hormone or testosterone replacement treatments for hypogonadal men.

Arimidex is also considered a better choice than antiestrogens such as Clomid and Nolvadex as the two medications (Clomid and Nolvadex) are meant for decreasing estrogenic activity in the body or delay the development of cancer malignancy but Arimidex prevents the aromatase compound to prevent the level of estrogen. This antiestrogen is usually used with Propecia (Finasteride) to boost benefits as Arimidex stops development of estrogen while Finasteride stops transformation of androgenic hormone or testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) besides decreasing the serum attention of DHT and unwanted androgenic results such as hair loss.

When Arimidex is used with Finasteride by athletes on highly aromatizable steroids, athletes can easily obtain amazing muscular profits with a reduced possibility of oily skin, acne, and liquid storage to boast of an attractive and lean appearance. Arimidex is also an effective selection for helping the levels of muscular strength and profits besides decreasing the incident of injuries.

Scientific studies, in the past, have recommended that Arimidex is useful in helping the amount of androgenic hormone or testosterone in the system and these profits could be as much as 60 percent with just 7 days of use. The recommended dose of Arimidex for men is 0.5-3.0 mg per day. The standard dose of Arimidex for females is 1.0 mg per day. Arimidex amounts are generally taken two to six times a day at equal durations because of its short active life.

The risk of estrogenic side effects is often one of the biggest factors why some sportsmen tend to avoid anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs. This obviously means that their performance fells short compared to performances delivered by steroid-using sportsmen population. However, Arimidex can help in getting rid of all side effects of estrogens in quick time besides restoring testosterone levels in the body.

Also known as Anastrozole and Liquidex, Arimidex is a powerful antiestrogen that can easily restore or improve the production of naturally occurring testosterone besides reducing or eliminating the formation of excess estrogens by as much as 98 percent. The fact that only 1 mg of Arimidex is required to bring these dramatic results means that there is everything for a sportsman to win and nothing to lose by trusting this non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor.

The active ingredient in Arimidex tablets is Anastrozole and the list of inactive ingredients includes lactose, magnesium stearate, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, polyethylene glycol, povidone, sodium starch glycolate, and titanium dioxide. Medically, this drug is recommended for treating postmenopausal women patients with hormone receptor-positive early breast cancer. Arimidex belongs to the category of 3rd generation selective oral aromatase inhibitors and is chemically described as 1,3-Benzenediacetonitrile, a, a, a’, a’-tetramethyl-5-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl).

Sportsmen commonly use Arimidex with Propecia (Finasteride) as Propecia prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone and preventing male pattern baldness while Arimidex takes care of estrogen formation. It can be used in doses of 0.5-3.0 mg per day though a dosage of 1.0 mg per day is common among sportsmen. Arimidex must be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F).

If you want to use anabolic steroids but worry about estrogenic side effects, it is time that you access a clear and complete understanding about Arimidex, also known as Liquidex, A-dex, or Anastrozole. This non-steroidal drug is one of the best post cycle therapy drugs that can easily protect you from estrogenic side effects like oily skin, acne, fluid retention, or gynecomastia.

The chemical name of Arimidex is 1,3-Benzenediacetonitrile, a, a, a’, a’-tetramethyl-5-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl) and its molecular formula is C17H19N5; the active life of this drug is 42-48 hours. Arimidex is prescribed, medically, to post menopausal women with breast cancer when standard therapies such as Tamoxifen have failed to deliver results. The aromatase inhibitor, Arimidex, also has the unique ability of reducing the concentrations of blood estradiol to minimize the size and growth of cancerous tumors. It is also prescribed as part of testosterone replacement therapy to hypogonadal men afflicted with low testosterone levels.

When taken in an oral form, A-dex enters the liver where as much as 90 percent of it is broken down into inactive metabolites. One of the biggest advantages with Arimidex is that it is not excreted in the urine, which suggests that it can even be used by those with kidney impairment. Arimidex is an extremely popular antiestrogen among sportsmen and others who make use of anabolic steroids (harsh or aromatizable). It is also effective in restoring (and even promoting increases) the levels of testosterone after the same have been reduced to a considerable extent during a steroid cycle involving harsh or aromatizable steroids. The best thing about Arimidex is that it demonstrates dramatic results even at a low dose of 1 mg. It is worthwhile to note here that the ideal dose of Arimidex is 0.5 mg for the first day and thereafter the dose can be increased to 1 mg per day.

It is also important to note here that Arimidex is one of the very few antiestrogens that could be an integral of any steroid cycle, bulking or cutting, and allows steroid users to reap and even optimize the benefits of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs without leading to a drop in testosterone levels or putting users in risk of estrogenic side effects. Belonging to the Class III generation selective oral aromatase inhibitors, Arimidex is not recommended for use by premenopausal females, breastfeeding or pregnant women.

Arimidex should also not be used by those with prostate or breast cancer or allergic to Arimidex or any of its active and/or inactive ingredients. The use of Arimidex should always be made after the recommended of a qualified medical practitioner and dosages must be strictly regulated and followed as per the medical advice. Under no circumstances, Arimidex should be abused or over-doses as it can lead to side effects such as dizziness. Individuals using any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement should seek medical advice before using Arimidex as the drug may interfere with functioning of these products, leading to side effects. Since the use of Arimidex leads to dizziness, its use is not recommended for those who perform on heavy machines, vehicles, or performing or about to perform an intense activity.In order to maintain its effectiveness and shelf life, Arimidex is required to be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F) and must be protected against moisture, heat, direct light, and unauthorized use.
