    While Jon Jones is allowed to pulse picograms, Mir says he was treated differently and suspended for two years after his positive test for a metabolite of Turinabol, so he wants to recoup earnings that he missed out on.

    “I’ve lost millions,” Mir said. “I had six more fights on a contract that paid me well. If you have noticed, my last fight, I didn’t even have sponsors. It’s difficult right now to rebuild up everything because of having to battle back from being falsely accused of something. It makes things difficult.”

    “Jon is one of the best fighters in the world pound for pound, but [for me] to be a less credible witness, that bothers me a little bit,” Mir said. “That stings. But that’s the issue I have so much is they’re still learning how the test works. I don’t think that you should have a test in the protocol that’s going to affect people’s careers, take two, four years away from them and not fully understand it. And I think now they’re backtracking with Jon. ‘Some of the tests are positive, some of the tests are negative, we don’t quite understand, it’s this pulsing.’

    “And I think it’s also added another taint towards Jon’s career, because I think at this point a lot of people are sitting and going, ‘OK, wait a minute, so it’s in your system, it’s not in your system, it’s showing up, it’s not showing up.’ No one’s clear of any kind of mindset where they think, ‘Well, what if he micro-dosed here and it’s coming up here.’ In just brings in too many questions and I feel bad for Jon on that sense. He’s had his issues that he’s self-imposed and here’s one that isn’t really his fault, so we’re in the same boat in that situation, where the science doesn’t really understand, but they’re doing hardcore sanctionings. And mine was even worse. At least now, I guess there’s a new guy that has this metabolite found in his system. But they won’t release his name until they figure out what’s going on.”

    Frank Mir says he’s considering legal action against USADA


    Who thinks Frank could successfully take USADA to the bank?

    He has valid concerns and criticisms.

    He would lose in court.

    Right now he could absolutely win, and he should absolutely go to court.

    fuck it. they should just use the picogram on everybody. bring back brock and let him juice to the tits. who cares if he pulses 999 picograms during fight week. those are old picograms. old guys like mir and vitor could still be snapping limbs and headkicking fools . usada fucked up this sport

    not sure if I got this picture here from the tmmac ...

    There was also soundbite from a Bisping-podcast episode recently where they talked about that and Bisping straight out said "Yeah yeah, look at you you have definitely taken steroids buddeh..."
    I couldn't find that though

    EDIT: bad english -> Bisping says the words about Frank Mir, but not to his face directly. Mir is not in there.

    it's not enough to show that their decision cost him money, he has to show that they had good reasons/evidence to make the alternate decision and did not.

    Mir May have not been on anything other than Kangaroo meat when he kissed hot. However, he definitely took some PED’s during his careeer. Anyone remember his body transformation when he fought Brock? That wasn’t just oil and lighting.

    This pulsing thing is the greatest hoax in pro sports today, but I don't blame Mir for trying to get his.
