Another day, another anti-doping violation. The UFC announced Wednesday that welterweight veteran Tim Means has been flagged for a "potential Anti-Doping Policy violation" stemming from an out-of-competition drug test with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

As a result of the potential violation, Means is out of his UFC Fight Night 83 main event bout against Donald Cerrone. A replacement opponent for Cerrone is expected to be announced "shortly." Link

Honestly, one of the last guys I would have expected. I don't know if I've ever seen a guy popped for that though. I don't even know what it is honestly.

Was so looking forward to this fight. A lot of people think it's weed related. Will be interesting to see if that's it. The USADA better be right, because Means is out a good amount of money.

Just saw your post. Interesting, he definitely doesn't strike me as one to use roids.

I used to think all the guys who get popped and blame other factors where full of shit but now I'm not so sure. Most of these athletes consume ridiculous amounts of many different supplements and maybe they all werent full of shit after all. A frontline doc just aired and is available to watch online on PBS called "supplements and safety" and is a real eye opener about this totally unregulated industry. Stories of steroid contaminated vitamin b capsules causing oblivious church ladies to suddenly grow beards, guys growing new tits, etc etc. Any of you PGer's who train should really watch this doc then do some reading. If you arent buying from GNC you are taking a big chance with your health. (they have the only tracking system and proper quality control)

I could be wrong, but even if it was weed it wouldn't be flagged. Out of competition tests ignore recreational drugs.

Hopefully this turns out to be a mistake. That was a banging main event. Maybe thatch will get moved up.

He's guilty already because of the way USADA does their business with this. If they don't have concrete evidence they should keep their mouth shut until they do. They still haven't said anything regarding Romero, but he was considered guilty anyways same as Means. It's a shady way to do business because later if it turns out the potential doesn't amount to a violation, well the damage is already done because the pitch fork and torch crowds don't care.

When Sean Sherk got busted he sent everything (he consumes regularly) in for testing. He claims an unopened case of water came back as being positive for steroids... Sherk looked like a potential steroid user so no one believed him, but I've always taken positive tests with a grain of salt.

Then the whole Nick Diaz thing where he failed one out of three tests? How does that even happen? Makes the whole thing seem like a joke

I'll check that video out, thanks for sharing

Here's a very interesting article about the USADA that I came across the other week

Ostarine for sale online

Ostarine info

It's sold (presumably legally) online as a supplement...

The Sherk one was one of the very few tests where I absolutely didn't believe he did it. If you watch behind the scenes stuff with him, he cooks all his own meals on a hot plate in the hotel because he wants to be 100% sure what he's putting in his body, won't go anywhere near buildings where people can smoke, etc. The whole thing was bizarre, and this kind of feels the same way. Means looks like he benches 150lbs.
