UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya on Wednesday took a blood test and did two MRI scans of his pituitary gland to diagnose a swollen and painful right pectoral muscle that prompted speculation at UFC 253.

“I’ll wait for the results,” Adesanya told ESPN. “I might keep you posted, or I might people speculate. It’s kind of fun to watch people cry about it.”

Adesanya’s online detractors immediately assumed the worst about his appearance at this past Saturday’s pay-per-view event, accusing him of steroid use. Even his rival, former light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones, cast a sideways glance before his dominant win over Paulo Costa.

Adesanya initially brushed off a question about his appearance, telling MMA Fighting at the post-fight press conference, “Why are they looking at my titties?”

Holed up in a New Zealand hotel per a mandatory COVID-19 quarantine, Adesanya is enjoying the surge of attention, good and bad. It’s been eight weeks since Adesanya’s right pectoral started swelling, increasing in size, and was “quite sore.” His girlfriend advised him to see a doctor, but he opted to fight Costa before seeking medical attention.

The champ had to Google the term gynecomastia, the medical term for enlarged male breasts that often goes hand-in-hand with steroid accusations, and pointed out that the condition effects both breasts – not just one.

“Wouldn’t it be funny if I died in five months and then it was cancer? It wouldn’t be funny,” he said, remembering the very real bad news of “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman’s unexpected death from the disease.

They're all on steroids, and always have been.
The UFC was started with juggernauts.






















You're all on steroids too.

"Holed up in a New Zealand hotel per a mandatory COVID-19 quarantine"

How long is this quarantine? Seems excessive for a guy testing negative and who has only been hanging around other negative testers.

I think 2 weeks. Here is the same thing. Covid isn’t a thing here in a big part because of it, so I support it

My buddy grew one tit like that, we used to call him Jimmy A-cup. That kid was out of shape and never did any steroids in his life. So it can naturally occur. Do I think Izzy grew his as a byproduct of steroid cycling anyways? Hell yes I do, I wasn't born fucking yesterday. But feel the need to point out it can just happen out of nowhere.

Can you imagine how much shit he would talk to Costa if he merc'd him like that and it turns out that he's one of the rare dudes that has breast cancer?

Hypthetically of course...


the AAs easily trigger failed tests

If you take Cyp Test and no AAs you run a risk

Test leaves your body in a couple days but the AAs do not


He sure did smoke Costa though, that was a hot knife thru butter

Yes. Like NZ we have mandatory quarantine for those arriving in Australia. Where I live, it goes further in that quarantine is mandatory for anyone coming in for outside the state

2 weeks. Put up in a designated hotel.
compulsory tests on day 3 and day 12 of isolation.
If a positive test comes back you’re moved to a facility that is under army guard.

Parts of Australia are fucksville according to Saloth Sar @Saloth Sar

It occurs to me that your proximity to that might be giving you a false sense of security.

The other parts of Australia are able to wall us off relatively effectively, particularly since our numbers are increasingly getting under control too. We are a Federation. States have, and are using, the power to close state borders.

But yes, this isn't a permanent solution. If they can't get a vaccine going, these cunts are going to have to take their medicine at some point too.

That's more or less where we are. Turns out shutting everything down for a few months just prolongs the ordeal. Who knew?

I understand that some people support those protocols.

To me that is super fucked up.

Where there's smoke, there's fire.

He never used to look like that, and a few fights ago, Dan Hooker looked better than he ever has against Al Iaquinta.

im surprised he didn't get fined for the dry humping lol wtf the does the commission even do if they allow him to fight with a boob and not fine him for that they are supposed to be professionals. dana white should be mad because that makes the ufc look like it lacks professionalism.
