Cris Cyborg ‘would never cheat’

For such a high profile steroid bust, there isn’t much hoopla surrounding Cris Cyborg testing positive. I figure that’s because most of us look at her, look at the news, and go “Yeah, that sounds about right.” But Cris Cyborg still desperately wants to clear her name, and says she only “used a dietary supplement that I was assured was safe and not prohibited from use in sports competition.” Want more details on that? Here you go:

Cris told me she was given what she was told was a “Diet Pill/Diuretic”….the UCLA Lab states it was a stanozolol metabolites…Our doctor states that stanozolol metabolites have a diuretic effect, and can be used as such.

She is really torn up over this, as essentially she is being accused of being a cheater….(She comes over and plays video games with us many times, and if we beat her, she will often take the game home and practice till she can beat us…she is THAT competitive…but she would never cheat.) I’ve known her many years, and this is completely out of character for her…

In response to a post made by MMA Journalist FrontRowBrian, stating that someone at Arena MMA saw Cris being injected by a needle; that is absolutely false. Cris actually has a fear of needles. Cris tested positive for a pill form substance that she thought was a diuretic tablet pill and Cris says the affects from the pill were that she would urinate frequently and lose water weight.

Cris Cyborg’s Management has just confirmed via one of their personal doctors that the substance Cris tested positive for can be Orally Ingested and does have diuretic effects; supporting Cris’ claim that she took a pill from someone in her camp that she believed was a diuretic for cutting weight.

This is now starting to sound like the Karo Parisyan ‘someone gave me a pill, I didn’t know what it was’ excuse. Pro athletes probably take this kinda stuff by the handful so I guess it’s possible but it doesn’t make things any less sketchy. Whoever gave Cyborg that stuff better run or she’ll go out and Jan Finney them.

    Aren’t diuretics banned anyway?

    Some diuretics

    Even if she was using roids to lose weight it’s just as bad. If she’s too big for the weight class and needs PED’s to help her make weight that gives her an unfair advantage. I don’t buy it.

    i wanna see her fight kenny florini.

    Stop being so absurd, Phoenix;  Kenny is clearly tired of fighting power strikers who are bigger than him.

    Who gave her the pill and what brand, product, retailer was it?

    She’s had a week, correct?  I look at her like a superhero, so I gave her the benefit of the doubt to see if she’d step up to the obvious and easy Bas Challenge.  She had a week and all we hear is “a pill,” from “someone?”

    I’m done.

    Yeah always surprised how sluggish and slow the response is when this kinda thing happens. If you’re innocent, prove it! Produce the pill. Go get some crazy fucking testing done, blood, pee, the whole shebang.

    That’s why I half believe Sherk. He was trying so hard to prove his side of the story. We’ll never know the truth unfortunately.

    Are there any pictures of her out there before she maned up? Curious to see if there was a big change or if she was born half dude.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah i’d love to see some Cyborg high school pics. She’s apparently always been into working out, she was playing volleyball when Evangelista Cyborg and the others from the camp saw her and convinced her to train with them

    ^^Funny thing is…..I heard that’s true for American beach volleyball. They test overseas & some of our top teams MYSTERIOUSLY choose not to compete internationally.
