 Ufc's chael sonnen takes shot at boxer juan manuel marquez over peds
topic by thehammer - 12-27-2012, 05:01 PM



Chael Sonnen appears to be in Boxing Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach's corner on Juan Manuel Marquez's physique.

Sonnen on Wednesday took aim at the WBO light-welterweight champion, who earlier this month knocked out star Manny Pacquiao, saying he "miraculously went through puberty a second time" before the f!ght.

The UFC light-heavyweight contender never directly accused Marquez of taking a performance-enhancing drug, but he cast suspicion on the f!ghter given a "visual test."

"The guy's got a six-pack that he never had before," Sonnen said on Showtime's "Jim Rome: Live." "There are two tests that you have. You've got the pee test, but you've also got the visual test.

"When you take your robe off and you get in the ring, that's the first test. And to act as though all of us didn't go, 'Something's going on, there.'"

As backup, Sonnen, who's skills as a raconteur have won him a commentating job with FUEL TV, cited Roach's comment to USA TODAY Sports in which he said if Marquez was clean, he would "kiss his a$s."

"Did he take something? Sure, he did," Sonnen said. "Did he take something illegal? Well, according to the (drug) test, no."

"The Ultimate f!ghter 17" coach, who's set to face opposing coach and light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones in April, knows quite a bit about that subject. He ran afoul of the California State Athletic Commission in 2010 over his use of prescribed testosterone, for which he was suspended following a failed title bid against Anderson Silva at UFC 117. (He appealed separate punishments for the infraction, claiming he properly disclosed his use.) Prior to a rematch with Silva at UFC 148, he applied for and received a therapeutic-use exemption to use the hormone, which opened him to regular out-of-competition testing.

Marquez, who avenged a pair of losses and a draw to Pacquiao with his brutal sixth-round KO, sternly denied Roach's implication in interviews prior to the Dec. 8 f!ght and said he was open to extra testing. Pacquiao, who once settled out of court with star Floyd Mayweather Jr. over unproven steroid allegations, echoed that willingness but sidestepped accusations. (Both f!ghters passed post-f!ght drug tests the Nevada State Athletic Commission oversaw.)

Angel Hernandez, the strength and conditioning coach who once testified about his role in the BALCO scandal and later took a role as Marquez's strength and conditioning coach for the third Pacquiao bout, suggested his f!ghter's accusers might be scared of a fourth meeting. He said f!ghters working with him were required to undergo random drug testing.

He may have. I don't really care anymore. One single punch k!lled any hope of me getting back into Boxing.

I truly wonder if Floyd wishes that Manny would have won. We all know Manny got screwed against Bradley, but he got knocked out against Marquez. There's no coming back from that and Floyd missed out on a huge payday in a f!ght he probably would have easily won (and I'm a pacroid fan).

Memo Heredia, Marquez's trainer, said this in an interview a few years ago:

SPIEGEL: Do you have any other secrets?

Heredia: Oh yes, of course. There are tablets for the kidneys that block the metabolites of steroids, so when athletes give a urine sample, they don’t excrete the metabolites and thus test negative. Or there is an enzyme that slowly consumes proteins - epo has protein structures, and the enzyme thus ensures that the B sample of the doping test has a completely different value than the A sample. Then there are chemicals that you take a couple of hours before the race that prevent acidification in the muscles. Together with epo they are an absolute miracle. I’ve created 20 different drugs that are still undetectable for the doping testers.

I'm starting to think both of Pac's f!ghts are rigged for the people who bet on the sport. How could a guy like Pacquiao go through such a downfall ? I'm not saying JMM didn't skillfully knocked him out but maybe he did take some drugs and went undetected. Its whatever though, I'd much prefer UFC>boxing for this very same reason.
