Mac Danzig: 90 per cent of fighters have used PEDs


Around 90 per cent of professional MMA fighters are using some sort of performance-enhancing substances, claims UFC lightweight Mac Danzig.

The infamously morose Danzig levelled the accusation during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, although he didn’t say where he had got his figures from.

“I know a lot of these people and I train them and I train with them. I would say at least sixty per cent are on them all the time and around 85 to 90 per cent have tried them… these guys cycle the stuff and they know how long it will take to get out of their body. I’m also talking about HGH - Human Growth Hormone - which isn’t tested for right now,” he drawls.
