In Least Surprising News of 2012, Cyborg Santos Tests Positive for Steroids
Gee, what gave it away? The 20″ biceps? The six-pack abs? The Adam’s apple? Oh I get it, it was the hair on her knuckles and chest that tipped everyone off.
Yes, Cyborg Santos tested positive for stanozolol metabolites following a Dec. 17 title defense at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal. She’s been suspended a year, fined $2,500, and her win over Hiroko Yamanaka has been overturned to a no-contest.
Her positive test takes away one of the main attractions in women’s MMA and almost kills the top division. About the only thing fans have to look forward to is Ronda Rousey against Miesha Tate in March, which should be exciting.
But now that Cyborg’s been popped for roids, about the only thing I’m wondering is when they’re going to find her twig and gigs. Where does she hide big old mister knish when she’s fighting?
