Once again, my point about steroids in MMA (mixed martial arts) proves true.  MOst if not ALL people who use steroids and compete in MMA lose.  Like 9/1 (w/l).  I believe steroid use in MMA actually HINDERS your progress and ability to win.  Steroids have no place in MMA – mark my words.

Phil Baroni probably took the EQ for recovery and winstrol for stamina, which is stupid in itself considering what winstrol does to the joints.

you can discuss this here:

Middleweight Phil Baroni tested positive for Boldenone and Stanozolol Metabolites, the California State Athletic Commission announced Tuesday afternoon. The 31-year-old from Long Island, New York has been fined $2,500 and suspended 365 days from the conclusion of his loss against Frank Shamrock (Pictures) on June 22 in San Jose. The final 51 days of that suspension will be fulfilled at the start of Baroni’s next licensing year, should he decide to reapply.

“While we respect the process and intent of the test we are disappointed with the results as they are completely unexpected,” said Baroni’s manager, Ken Pavia. “Phil did not knowingly ingest these drugs, which we are told are veterinary in nature. 

“We intend to exercise all rights that are afforded by the state commission and (CSAC Executive Officer) Armando Garcia.”

Baroni joins Carter Williams, who was suspended six months and fined $1,000 following a positive test for cocaine, as the second fighter to test for banned substances following the Strikeforce/EliteXC co-promoted card.

“Phil Baroni feels that worse than any fine or suspension is the disgrace associated with the positive test to himself, his family and fans,” Pavia said. “As such he asks that judgement be withheld until all facts are in evidence.”

All other fighters on the card have been cleared by the CSAC.
