CombatLifestyle has an amusing picture up of Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva at EliteXC heat. With Silva’s suspension hearing coming up on October 22nd, I thought now would be a good time to bring back up our post on why Bigfoot tested positive for steroids.
Long story short: he took a supplement that is known to show up as Boldenone in your piss. The jury is still out amongst the jackals as to whether that means he’s guilty or not, but Silva’s management is hoping the supplement situation plus a claim that steroids could kill someone with acromegaly (aka gigantism) will clear his name. I haven’t been able to find any information backing the steroids = death thing up, but I figure a dude with acromegaly probably knows more about that than I do about that.
