    Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson: MMA Fighters Who Use Steroids are Not True Fighters

    Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson: MMA Fighters Who Use Steroids are Not True Fighters
    By Millard Baker ~ source

    Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Mo “King Mo” Lawal have displayed a great deal of animosity for each other over the past few years. Lawal hasn’t taken kindly to being called “Queen Mo” among other things by Jackson. Lawal summed up the state of their relationship when he told The MMA Hour that “I don’t like him, he don’t like me!”

    So it comes as no surprise that Jackson wouldn’t miss an opportunity to comment on “King Mo’s” positive steroid test. Lawal tested positive for Masteron during the post-fight drug screen at the “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine” event on January 7, 2012.

    “He talk a big game, he say all this stuff, he’s calling people bums and everything, and it’s just karma,” Jackson told Karyn Bryant of MMAHeat.com. “Look at him. He’s a very cocky individual. I feel like any fighter that has to use steroids to go in a cage and fight somebody is not a true fighter.”

    Rampage Jackson did allow exceptions for some MMA fighters to use anabolic steroids. He attempted to distinguish between fighters who used steroids for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and fighters who used steroid for no other reason than to enhance their performance.

    “Some people have problems, like okay, go to the doctor and get it sorted out,” said Jackson. “There are some fighters out there who are of age and they’re doing the right things to stay healthy and stay competitive but somebody blatantly taking anabolic steroids to get in the cage, it’s a sad case. It’s a sad case.”

    The use of steroids for TRT in MMA and other sports has been a topic of considerable controversy.

    UFC welterweight fighter Dennis Hallman, UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen, UFC star Nate Marquardt and Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson have all admitted using testosterone as part of a medically-supervised treatment for hypogonadism.

    “Rampage” Jackson is one of the few fighters who have defended TRT in the sport. Most athletes tend to share the same opinions as UFC middleweight Michael Bisping. They believe MMA fighters use TRT to justify their use of anabolic steroids. “Fighters on TRT are fucking cheats,” according to Bisping.

    For the record, Lawal claimed that he is innocent since he and his manager have never heard of the steroid Masteron or drostanolone.

    “Both of us are very surprised by these results,” Lawal’s manager told USA Today. “Neither of us has ever heard of this drug. … We honestly have no clue where this came from.”

    Earlier this year, many fans had hoped to see Jackson and Lawal settle their differences in the ring. At one time there were rumors that Jackson and Lawal would face each other at UFC Japan in February 2012 since they both have a strong Japanese fan base given their time competing in Pride and Sengoku.

    Instead, Lawal will likely be suspended for 6-12 months by Strikeforce for his use of Masteron. Meanwhile, Jackson will fight Ryan Bader in Tokyo come February.

    What a stupid sport. Just read this article and your IQ will drop about 30 points. So young, heavily muscled, professional fighters need to have TRT because their test levels are low? hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, whatever

    Most of the TRT patients in MMA are in their mid-to-late 30's. Dan Henderson, who may be next in line for a LHW title shot, is 41.

    Gee, I wonder how all of these extremely large individuals are having problems with their nuts producing test.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    Its jus like every thing eles , I am sure there are those who use TRT because they need it, and others jus need a loop hole to hide they use.. Rampage took a beating in Japan so maybe he jus needs to up his dose, for the next fight..He post fight interview was a joke
