    People think Lesnar took steroids?

    All of this analysis of GSP being juiced up is purely speculation. Just like all of the speculation on Lesnar. Frankly, I think they both are on something. Lesnar's recent health problems are due to more than just mononucleosis or staph. These guys are all one step ahead of the tests.

    This is Frank Mir's take:
    "I understand -- everyone is quick to downplay anyone who is successful. Let's be realistic: I was 245 [pounds], yes, for the last fight. Two weeks later I was already 260 [pounds] because of what it took me to be 245 [pounds], if you look at my body fat percentage, I dieted down. I had the mentality that well, I'm going to have to be a cardio freak and every extra pound is going to count against me. So if it's not pure muscle it's a waste of my time. [Coming in to the Brock Lesnar rematch] it was the leanest I have ever been for a fight. So like any guy who is cutting weight you skyrocket back up to your natural weight [shortly thereafter]. When I showed up at Mark Phillipe's I weighed in at 261 [pounds]. That's just my natural body weight. I'm not really a 245-pound guy -- that's just me cardio'ed out of my mind and watching everything I ate. If you look at those 10 pounds you have to look at what percentage of that is muscle -- my body fat obviously increased [for the Checik Kongo fight] because I was nowhere near as lean as I was for UFC 100. You put on blood volume because you increased the size. On a fluid level you retain more fluid. It's not really that farfetched for a guy my size. It's just that the average human being is well below 200 pounds so it may be hard for a lot of people to fathom. Mark Phillipe is a huge man himself and he's always been a drug-free athlete. He's never had to use that to compete with and he's in the upper echelon. That's kind of why I chose him because I see guys who are out there that are super strong, but let's face it, the guy is 280 pounds and 6 percent body fat ... and that's probably not natural.... The UFC drug tests the hell out of us. I get drug tested before and after the fight. And I get randomly drug tested all the time because I'm under contract with the UFC. I'm sure there is a way around everything, but that's a lot of stress. That means you're worrying how to get around that and you have to fight in a couple of hours. Fighting is stressful enough as it is, [worrying about a drug test] is just not necessary."

    I should have clarified. I was merely using PJ's logic here.
