Ken shamrock appreciates voluntary drug testing

Ken Shamrock, one of the biggest stars of MMA, has appreciated Filipino-American boxer Nonito “The Filipino Flash” for his efforts to clean up the sport by willingly opting for voluntary drug testing.

Shamrock remarked the Filipino-American boxer has become the ideal example of a drug-free fighter after subscribing to 24/7 drug testing with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA). Shamrock, who admitted to using anabolic steroids in the past, said Nonito Donaire is a name that comes into my mind and is someone who has proven that he does not use steroids because he does random drug testing. Ken Shamrock said the fighter has demonstrated there is nothing to hide as he is open to testing at any given time. The MMA great, who is best known for his rivalry with Brazilian jiu-jitsu great Royce Gracie in the early 1990s, said anti-doping officials can come to his gym whenever they want and they would test Donaire.

Shamrock became the first UFC superfight champion after he defeated Dan Severn at UFC 6. He was the first foreign MMA champion in Japan after he won the title of King of Pancrase. Shamrock then entered the world of professional wrestling to become the WWF intercontinental champion, the WWF tag team champion, and the 1998 WWF “King of the Ring.”

Shamrock remarked he never used steroids while in the ring and never fought using them. He added he understands the present-day turmoil in the context of drug testing in MMA but said the fighters who have already been making money can afford to get around the testing. Shamrock, described by many as “The World’s Most Dangerous Man“, is working these days as a security guard for the world-renowned rapper 50 Cent.

The retired American mixed martial artist, UFC Hall of Famer, and professional wrestler emerged as one of the biggest stars in the history of mixed martial arts during the course of his career. Shamrock set many pay-per-view records with his drawing power. Considered to be the #1 mixed martial artist in the world, Shamrock was ranked by Inside MMA as one of the top 10 greatest mixed martial arts fighters of all time. World Wrestling Entertainment—formerly the World Wrestling Federation—credited Shamrock for popularizing the ankle lock that was named by it one of the top five submission holds in history. Born Kenneth Wayne Kilpatrick, Shamrock came to overnight prominence by defeating world kickboxing champion and future UFC Heavyweight Champion Maurice Smith and Alex Cook in the Opening Round of the 16 man King of Pancrase Tournament. He defeated Masakatsu Funaki and Manabu Yamada in the Second Round to become the first King of Pancrase.

Shamrock’s finishing moves were mostly all about ankle locks and his signature moves included sleeper hold, hurricanrana, and belly-to-belly suplex. Ken Shamrock is the only fighter to ever defend the UFC Superfight Championship and is credited with having the longest Fight in UFC History UFC 5 at 36 minutes. He was the first inductee into the UFC hall of fame with Royce Gracie and was the first fighter to defend a UFC title belt. Shamrock was ranked by Pro Wrestling Illustrated as the Most Improved Wrestler of the Year (1997) and #8 of the 500 best singles wrestlers of the PWI Years in 1998.

Benoit passed drug test in April, says WWEThe head of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. has said that professional wrestling star Chris Benoit, who killed his wife and son before taking his own life earlier this week, passed a random drug test in April.

“The last test that Chris Benoit took of a random nature was in April which he was totally negative,” WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said on NBC’s “Today” morning program. “That doesn’t mean that he wasn’t taking prescription medication and perhaps even steroids when this happened. We don’t know.”

Investigators found anabolic steroids among prescription drugs in Benoit’s suburban Atlanta house where the three bodies were found.

  MICKEY ROURKE ON STEROID USE

rourke-steroidsPhilip Andre “Mickey” Rourke, Jr. is a familiar name in Hollywood. Not only is he a Golden Globe awardee, but he has appeared in several successful films such as 1941, Body Heat and Diner. His most recent film is entitled, “The Wrestler”, which took home the Golden Lion Award for Best Film at the Venice Film Festival. In this movie, Rourke plays the role of fighter Randy “The Ram” Robinson. The actor underwent training under a former WWE wrestler Afa the Wild Samoan. The hard training paid off since Rourke won the best actor award in the 2008 Independent Spirit Award.

The role fit Rourke perfectly since besides being an actor, he is also a boxer. He is used to the tough training and bodybuilding. In one of Rourke’s interview with Men’s Journal, he gave a rather implicating statement that now has people talking.

It wouldn’t be anything new for a celebrity to use performance enhancing drugs. A few months ago, several artists were identified to be taking steroids in order to counter aging. Rourke didn’t take any of these drugs though. So what did he do to look more like a wrestler? According to him, he used some heavy duty supplements to improve his performance. These weren’t steroids or any other regular stuff though. Whatever the supplements were, they proved to be quite effective.

  STEROID USE IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING

wwe-steroidsAlmost all types of sports have different ways of identifying which players are doing something “illegal” in order to get ahead of the game. Most of these ways are quite efficient, and the athletes, righteously charged. This is probably why Representative Henry A. Waxman was rather surprised when he found out discrepancies in the anabolic steroid testing of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).

In his efforts to expose steroid use in all sports, Waxman revealed that during the first year of steroid testing of WWE, a good 40% of the wrestlers were tested positive amidst warnings that they were going to be tested. Further investigations led to Dr. David Black, the independent third party hired to do the drug testing for WWE. Interviews showed a lax policy on steroid use. Dr. Black stated that wrestlers who were supposed to be suspended continued to wrestle even when WWE has a policy that any violation would meet certain suspensions.

As for TNA, several wrestlers were tested positive not only for steroid use but for other drugs as well. TNA has just started its anti-drug testing program a year ago.

Waxman concluded that evidences show that steroid and drug use in professional wrestling is widespread, and the committees who are supposed to be in charge of this are not doing their jobs efficiently.
