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.
