  Hunt Given Green Light To Sue Brock Lesnar And UFC

The high-profile case of UFC star Mark Hunt against the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Dana White, and Brock Lesnar has been given green light as his lawsuit survived a motion to dismiss.

Hunt has alleged that the UFC, White, and Lesnar committed fraud, battery, racketeering, and civil conspiracy with regards to the failed drug test of Lesnar at UFC 200. Lesnar beat Hunt by unanimous decision but the victory of Lesnar was overturned. Lesnar was later suspended by both USADA (United States Ant-Doping Agency) and the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) fined him.

Hunt is alleging that the UFC, White, and Lesnar knew about the failed test before the bout. The claims of Hunt go further as the UFC star stated that he was financially and physically damaged by what his legal team has alleged was a criminal conspiracy.

The complaint reads Brock Lesnar, Dana White, and the UFC acted in concert as set forth fully above, to defraud Mark Hunt and commit a battery against Hunt by a scheme to knowingly pit Hunt, a clean fighter, against Lesnar, a doping fighter, to the wrongful benefit of defendants and to the detriment of Hunt.

The UFC waived its rule that permits return of fighters must be in the USADA testing program for four months before competing again. Lesnar was only tested starting about one month out of UFC 200. The fighter did cleared multiple USADA tests in June before a June 28 sample that was taken 11 days prior to the July 9 fight came back positive after UFC 200. Lesnar tested positive for Clomiphene (Clomid), the banned substance in a USADA pre-fight, out-of-competition test and then tested positive for the same substance on fight night. The pre-fight test result did not come back before his fight against Hunt at UFC 200 that allows him to fight and defeat Hunt by unanimous decision.

It was continued in the complaint that White and UFC, on information and belief, were intentionally delaying the announcement because Lesnar was using banned substances and needed additional time in order to circumvent testing procedures. Hunt claimed in interviews to preview UFC 200 that he knew his opponent was “juicing” but didn’t care and would knock him out anyway and the legal team of UFC included that in their motion to dismiss the case. The complaint by Hunt also mentions failed drug tests by Frank Mir and Antonio Silva, two previous Hunt opponents, and a questionable Vitor Belfort drug test before his fight with Jon Jones in 2012. This information was supplied as evidence of the UFC’s questionable handling of past doping situations.

Mark Hunt is claiming compensation for loss of earnings after the defeat, lucrative personal appearances and endorsements that he claims have been lost due to his defeat. The UFC fighter is also claiming treble damages “pursuant to stature,” and punitive damages sufficient to deter illegal doping in the sport of mixed martial arts. Hunt has also asked the court for the defendants to expel their “ill-gotten profits.”

  UFC Announces Revamped Drug Policy

UFC Announces Revamped Drug Policy

Earlier this year, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced that it will bring a significant transformation to its drug testing policy. On Wednesday, the largest mixed martial arts promotion company in the world turned the dream into a reality.

A series of dramatic changes were outlined by Jeff Novitzky, the UFC’s new Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance, at a press conference in Las Vegas. This revamped drug policy is created with a vision of being the best anti-doping program in all of professional sports. The new program is expected to roll out on July 1 and will be under the leadership of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Novitzky announced the entire roster of UFC of 500+ fighters will be subject to unannounced, year-round in- and out-of-competition testing including both blood and urine testing, with the possibility of a collection that may occur at any place, any time, with no notice.

The announcement comes a few days after the Nevada Athletic Commission announced a series of sweeping changes to its drug testing program.

Under the revamped UFC drug policy, fighters would be tested for in- and out-of competition for anabolic steroids, growth hormones, peptides, blood doping drugs, and methods. Fighters who fail test for the first time will fail a suspension of 2 years with a possibility of a 4-year suspension for “aggravating circumstances”. The second offense would mean double the sanction for the first offense and the third offense would be double the sanction of the second offense. Fighters would be subjected to in-competition testing only for marijuana, cocaine, other stimulants, and glucocorticosteroids. Athletes failing test for these specified substances, for the first time, will face a suspension of one year with a possibility of 2 additional years for “aggravating circumstances”. The second offense under specified substances’ policy would mean double the sanction for the first offense and the third offense would be double the sanction of the second offense.

The term “aggravating circumstances” across several spectrums was defined by Novitzky including “egregious intent, conspiracy or agreements with others to attempt to defeat the testing system,” along with past offenses and multiple offenses, all modeled after the World Anti-Doping Agency code. In-competition testing was defined by Novitzky as the time period between six hours prior to weigh-ins until six hours immediately following the fight of an athlete.

The UFC also announced that there would be disqualification of result of the bout, and forfeiture of title, ranking, and purse or other compensation in case of anti-doping violation during or leading up to a bout. It was also announced that any purse, compensation or fine forfeited will be put towards cost of anti-doping program and/or anti-doping research of the UFC.

USADA CEO Travis Tygart today is a huge win for the athletes in the UFC as they set a new standard for all professional sport in protecting the rights and health of clean athletes and the integrity of competition. Tygart added the UFC has taken a bold and courageous leap forward for the good of its athletes in developing a comprehensive and cutting edge anti-doping policy expressly modeled on the key elements of the WADA Anti-Doping Program and by having it run by an independent and transparent National Anti-Doping Organization.

  UFC Announces Anti-Doping Plan

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the largest mixed martial arts promotion company in the world, has announced a multimillion-dollar anti-doping plan after fighters Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz, and Hector Lombard were temporarily suspended for failed drug tests.

Effective July 1, all fighters will be subject to random performance-enhancing drug testing. UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta remarked the world’s leading MMA promotion will urge athletic commissions to impose more severe doping penalties. The UFC CEO went on to remark that he supports the idea of a two-year ban imposed by the World Anti-Doping Agency for first-time offenders and increasing the ban to four years if WADA goes that route. Fertitta said our current methods are catching athletes using PEDs and added although we feel confident that the in-competition has been effective, we recognize the need for a more robust out-of-competition plan in accordance with athletic commissions and regulatory bodies.

The UFC CEO also said we can do better and added we have all seen similar challenges in the world of sports. And consequently we see that the UFC is no more immune to performance-enhancing drug use than any other major sport. He added the UFC spent approximately $500,000 on drug testing in 2013 and 2014 and was now willing to spend “several million dollars” for both in- and out-of-competition testing. Fertitta also remarked the UFC expected to administer around 984 tests a year, based on 41 events.

Georges St-Pierre, a longtime advocate for more of drug testing, appreciated the announcement. The former welterweight champion said the announcement is clearly a big step in the right direction for our sport and added he is very happy to learn about the UFC announcing a new comprehensive random PED testing.

California state athletic commission executive director Andy Foster said it is one thing for the UFC to snap its fingers and announce a major change but added state regulatory agencies don’t always work so quickly, nor should they. Nevada state athletic commission executive director Bob Bennett remarked a four-year suspension would be a phenomenal deterrent, especially in this sport as it would make a fighter think twice.

The UFC announcement was also appreciated by Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission Executive Director Greg Sirb. He remarked you have got to give them some credit for jumping ahead and doing something on an issue as serious as this. Sirb added at least they’re being proactive on this, which is good and added but each commission has its own state or tribal laws and regulations and so whatever the UFC comes up with, they’re going to have to have it adopted by every state commission. Sirb also remarked his thought would be that the suspension would go to the MMA database as well as the national boxing database, so when that fighter’s name comes up for a card, that’s good information for the commission. He also remarked he likes the idea of them putting that information out there, telling us who tested positive, for what and when and we may not want to license him.

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.

  Rousey Is ‘New Chuck Liddell,’ Says Dana White

Rousey Is ‘New Chuck Liddell,’ Says Dana White

Dana White, the President of the mixed martial arts organization Ultimate Fighting Championship, has remarked MMA fighter Ronda Jean Rousey is his new Chuck Liddell, “The Iceman.”

White remarked Rousey wanted to fight Alexis Davis at UFC 175 for the July 5 fight card (at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center) as she wanted to get back in the octagon as soon as possible.

Liddlle is highly admired in the MMA circles and is best known for testing his skills against anyone at any time and White remarked Ronda Jean Rousey owns that same mindset. White added she wants to fight, so she’ll fight back-to-back, she’ll fight on 24 hours’ notice – she’s the new Chuck Liddell.

Termed as “the biggest star in UFC history” by UFC president Dana White, the women’s bantamweight champion recently received flak for her comments against Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino.

Rousey accused Justino of being a user of anabolic androgenic steroids for long and said she is not a woman anymore. Condemning her remarks, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said he would never want to verbalize disrespect for a fighter but to characterize her as the biggest star in MMA is a little disrespectful to a lot of fighters who have put in year after year after year in this game. Rebney added if Ronda fights ‘Cyborg’ and she could beat ‘Cyborg,’ he thinks that would be a big statement as to where she is in the game but to characterize her as the biggest star is a bit disingenuous but he thinks there are a lot of huge stars in MMA.

Ronda Jean Rousey is the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and is undefeated Rousey became the first American woman to bag an Olympic medal in Judo at the Summer Olympics in Beijing in 2008. She trains under Gokor Chivichyan of the Hayastan MMA Academy and enlisted former undefeated boxing and kickboxing champion Lucia Rijker in July 2012 as striking coach. According to MMARising and other publications, she is the consensus #1 pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world and is the #10 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC s of March 10, 2014. Rousey will soon hit the movie stage with her roles in The Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7.

In another development, UFC commentator Joe Rogan has remarked Ronda Rousey would win if there is a fight between Rousey and undefeated boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. Rogan remarked it is all about how much time Floyd has to prepare, because he will really have to work on his takedown defense and that would be the big thing. The commentator said if Ronda got a clinch on him, it’s not just about worrying about being taken down to the ground, it’s worrying about knees to the body and went on to add that it is worrying about her manipulating his body in ways that he doesn’t understand. Rogan remarked Mayweather would need at least six months of training to be able to have a chance with Rousey.

  Total Ban On TRT Announced By California Commission

Total Ban On TRT Announced By California Commission

The California State Athletic Commission has announced a total ban on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). This move was announced by Commission officials, a week after the Nevada State Athletic Commission issued a ban on TRT and urged other regulatory bodies to follow suit to ban Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE).

The NSAC recently became the first commission to outright ban TUEs for testosterone replacement therapy.

The move by Nevada also prompted the UFC-backed Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA), Brazil’s regulatory body, to ban exemptions for testosterone replacement therapy. CABMMA however allowed Dan Henderson (29-11 MMA, 6-5 UFC) to use the hormone for his fight with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua on March 23 at UFC Fight Night 38. Ironically, Henderson was the first MMA fighter to receive a TUE for testosterone replacement therapy in Nevada and he is the last in Brazil.

In another development, New Jersey counsel Nick Lembo said the commission will look at Nevada’s decision but would not be making any immediate changes.

According to a statement by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), it will soon require World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards to receive a testosterone replacement therapy exemption and no therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) will be granted in the state of California until those rules are enacted. In the statement, CSAC Executive Officer Andy Foster said the California State Athletic Commission fully supports the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s decision to eliminate Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) in boxing and mixed martial arts. Foster added that California is a strong supporter of anti-doping efforts and as part of California’s anti-doping efforts, the Commission recently began the rulemaking process to require meeting World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards as the only way to obtain a TUE for TRT.

The California State Athletic Commission Executive Officer also said this standard is so high that it is an effective ban except under the most extreme circumstances and remarked that until the rulemaking process is complete and the regulations are fully adopted, the Commission has a total ban on TRT. California remains committed to protecting the health and safety of athletes and having strict anti-doping standards is one of the ways this is accomplished.

Meanwhile, President of the Association of Boxing Commissions has recommended that member commissions follow current protocols for testosterone replacement therapy exemptions. Tim Lueckenhoff said he will ask the medical committee to consider and review Nevada’s new position on the matter which is a strong deviation from their past practice. Lueckenhoff added he will also ask our legal committee to counsel us about the legal ramifications, if any, from an outright ban without exception for any reason.  Lueckenhoff also remarked that we are always interested in the subject of PED usage and proper testing and are pleased that Nevada’s action is igniting a healthy debate on the subject matter.

In 2011, the Association of Boxing Commissions crafted guidelines for testosterone replacement therapy exemptions as part of its Handbook of Ringside Medicine. New Jersey chief ringside physician and ABC medical committee director Dr. Sherry Wulkan were at the forefront of crafting the policy.

Anti-Doping Committee Established By IMMAF

The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation has announced its plans of establishing an anti-doping committee that is focused on enabling its members to meet World Anti-Doping Agency compliance in a year’s time.

According to an official release, the IMMAF took the step due to battling performance enhancing substance abuse is crucial not only to ensure fair play but most importantly from a health and safety perspective. Bertrand Amoussou, Vice President of the IMMAF and President of the French MMA Federation, has been selected to chair the committee, and IMMAF member federations have asked to nominate candidates to fill the committee. That process is expected to take six months, at which point the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation will outline its anti-doping plans and submit them to WADA for approval.

As per the announcement by the IMMAF, the first order of business for the committee is to investigate implementation for WADA compliance within the member federations and implications on matters such as sanctioning of professional events and compliance with the national guidelines in each individual country. Anti-doping policies are paramount if mixed martial art is ever going to become an Olympic sport.

The anti-doping committee has established its responsibilities as the development and maintenance of IMMAF anti-doping policies and procedures, ensuring compliance with the WADA code, development of IMMAF anti-doping education and information programs for all stakeholders, education of member federations and assistance in implementation of anti-doping policies and procedures, development and maintenance of the IMMAF doping control program including pre- and post-competition testing, result based testing, random testing and targeted testing, annual report on IMMAF anti-doping activities, WADA and national anti-doping organization communication, and establishment of criteria for and maintenance of the IMMAF Registered Testing Pool (RTP), identifying those who need provide their whereabouts.

The IMMAF, started in 2012, was created to further the development and recognition of the sport of MMA, enabling international competition through the organization of national federations around the world and quickly added federations in the U.S., Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Nepal, and the United Kingdom. The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) was founded by Austin Wallen on Feb. 29, 2012 and this anti-doping committee’s task is to enable World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) compliance within a year’s timeframe, ensuring that mixed martial arts is up to par with other major international sports when it comes to anti-doping policies.

In another development, Ken Shemrock has remarked that Brock Lesnar could have been the best fighter in MMA history if the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gave him ample time to grow. Lesnar, upon entry into the UFC, made it very clear that he did not want easy fights and the UFC obliged by matching him up against former heavyweight champ Frank Mir where Mir latched on a kneebar for the first-round submission finish. Lesnar officially announced his retirement from MMA in December 2011 with a 5-3 professional record, a decision that many believe was based primarily on his constant battle with diverticulitis, an intestinal disorder.

Nate Marquardt Wins Strikeforce Gold – Cliff Notes


@Nate Marquardt, the former UFC contender, has won the vacant Strikeforce welterweight championship with a knockout of Tyron Woodley.

 Nate Marquardt – Post Tyron Woodley Interview – Strikeforce MMA

A few years ago, the MMA fighter admitted in an interview that he was suffering from low testosterone levels and his doctor recommended testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Before his fight against Dan Miller in New Jersey, he requested a therapeutic-use exemption (TUE) but the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board indicated that request of his doctor was incomplete and the TRT treatment was not in accordance with the standards of USADA. The Board said they would authorize the testosterone treatment as long as Marquardt agrees to go off treatment for eight weeks and take three blood tests after the fight.

However, the personal doctor of the fighter suggested aggressive treatment and recommended injecting the testosterone straight rather than allowing Marquardt to take oral medications that promote the pituitary gland to spur testosterone production in the testicles. The testosterone injections pushed the fighter’s levels out of the range accepted by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission (PSAC) and UFC President fired Marquardt through Twitter.

White said Nate Marquardt would never fight in the UFC again after he failed to clear his medicals for his main event fight against Rick Story at a UFC event in Pittsburgh. Marquardt then went public and disclosed that his medicals failed because of elevated levels of testosterone due to a testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. The UFC President added that the MMA fighter tested positive for anabolic steroids in 2006, was on suspension for New Jersey, then failed to clear his medicals at Pennsylvania, and could not get a fourth chance. White added that there is a difference between testosterone replacement therapy and getting to levels where it is performance enhancing.

Born on April 20, 1979, Marquardt is an American mixed martial artist running the High Altitude Martial Arts Academy in Aurora, Colorado. Marquardt (31-10-2) has compiled 10 wins since joining the UFC in 2005 and has fought for the middleweight title in 2007 against Anderson Silva, which he lost via first-round TKO. Marquardt came close twice in 2010 to compete for the title again but fell short after decision losses to Chael Sonnen and Yushin Okami. On July 3, 2010 he was expected to face Alessio Sakara but the flight was called off after Sakara pulled out due to the death of his father. On March 19, 2011 at UFC 128, he won a fight against Dan Miller via unanimous decision after Yoshihiro Akiyama pulled out of the bout. The MMA fighter signed with top U.K. fight promotion BAMMA, the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts after his suspension was lifted by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission.

Recently, Dana White made an announcement that the fighter has signed with Strikeforce and his debut was Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy against Tyron Woodley in a bout for the vacant Strikeforce Welterweight Championship where he knocked out Woodley to become the Strikeforce Welterweight champion. The former UFC contender Nate Marquardt controlled the stand-up for the first two rounds and held off takedown attempts of Woodley to emerge victorious.

  Anavar Use In Sports

Posted By
Pin it Share on Tumblr

Anavar (also known as AnVar, Oxandrolone, and Oxandrin) is one of the most popular body weight and fat reduction drugs among amateur and professional sportsmen.

This artificial anabolic steroid derivative of dihydrotestosterone is a 17-alpha alkylated steroid that is popular among athletes across the world as it has only a minimal impact on enzymes of the liver. Moreover to that, the efficiency improving medication is not associated with aromatization that means users of this anabolic steroid need not worry about estrogenic adverse reactions such as gynecomastia, bloating, greasy skin, and acne. If that was not all, Anavar use is not relevant to a negative influence on the body’s normal androgenic hormone or testosterone production (HPTA axis).

In inclusion to these advantages, use of Anavar is also related with preserved muscle mass, improved body structure, and decrease in excess bodyweight and fat while helping users gain trim, overall look. A small majority of athletes even use this steroid clinically to balance out protein catabolism that is caused by administration of corticosteroids in the long run. Some athletes even use Oxandrolone for finding significant relief from anemia and genetic angioedaema. If that was not all, AnVar is also used by athletes and others for reducing bone pain associated with osteoporosis and reduce muscle wasting associated with HIV/AIDS.

Professional athletes, especially those in cycling, swimming, boxing, and mixed martial arts, use this excellent cutting cycle steroid to catch up and even stand above the competition while losing extra fat and getting strong muscles and benefit from body strength and trim overall look at the same time. Anavar use in sports is mainly because of the fact that the steroid leads to extraordinary and nearly lasting gains in the perspective of muscle function, endurance, body strength, weight-loss, fat reduction, and efficiency without putting users in risk of side effects of steroids, efficiency improving drugs, and estrogens.

Anavar use in sports is also relevant with improving the levels of efficiency and sculpting overall look of the body without limiting on already-gained muscle definition and mass. The steroid is commonly stacked with Equipoise, Trenbolone, and testosterone compounds such as testosterone enanthate during a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. It is beneficial to note that Anavar can be used by athletes suffering with specific health conditions after informing the concerned regulating authorities in advance about such use. However, a healthcare prescription is required to verify legitimateness of such use so that Anavar is not misused by athletes.

  Mike Kogan explains failed test

King Mo” Lawal’s manager, Mike Kogan, strongly believes that the mixed martial arts community will learn a few lessons from their experience after Lawal tested positive for steroids.

“We were very transparent about all of this and the biggest reason was because we want to make sure people have a chance to do their own research,” Kogan explained to MMAWeekly.

“The problem is that these materials and this research and information usually becomes available retroactively, not proactively, not ahead of time,” said Kogan. “Can this be prevented? Yes, it can be prevented by regulation through the FDA. But then they have to take on the big lobbying group of the nutrition companies.”
