Shamrock on Steroids

This is the craziest day of MMA news ever. BJ Penn files a ridiculous formal complaint asking for GSP to take showers before his future fights. Rampage pulls out of UFC 98 with injuries. Mask dies. And now Ken Shamrock tests positive for steroids.

According to MMAMania, Shamrock tested positive for Norandrosterone, Noretiocholanolone, and Stanozolol. I'm not entirely sure why he needed to take three different steroids to fight Ross Clifton, but he did. Shamrock was fined $2,500 and suspended indefinitely by the California State Athletic Commission. Chances are this will kill his fight with Bobby Lashley at Roy Jones Jr.'s hybrid event "March Badness".

I guess the lesson here is if you're a Mummy, taking three different steroids will allow you to rise from the dead and compete in MMA. Just be careful with the piss test.

This isn't all too surprising. As old and out of the sport as shamrock is, I could see him juicing to help it along.
