If he’s been on EPO the whole time. There is a reality he will never ascend to the top again. Some fighters get so mentally reliant on the juice that they have mental hurdles to overcome. Plus in 2 years the games gonna change. Such a bummer to hear TJ has been a snake this whole time.

Also, there’s a question posed, “why does TJ get so much more hate than others who have tested positive?” I’ll tell you why. When the test results came out, he immediately relinquished his belt. To me that’s an immediate admittance or guilt. He didn’t fight it. So yeah. TJs gonna get it hard for knowingly juicing. If he denied it, the public would be more receptive if the results because he’s a likable guy. Fans could be inclined to believe he didn’t do it intentionally.

Should have played the ED card like Silva, as a little guy I could have believed he was just looking for all the help he could get

I agree with what you’re saying but I think it’s better he admitted guilt straight away. With EPO it’s just blatant cheating and I don’t think any of the public would sympathize with him if he denied it. Better to get it over and done with now, in 2 years time the backlash would have died down and people would generally want to see what shape he is in. No way he is getting a title shot on his return but I’m sure he’d be getting as difficult match up as possible.
