Anabolic Steroids in Mixed Martial Artistry

Recently, two top professional mma (MMA) practitioners were banned for using Nandrolone Metabolite and Drostanolone. This news brought to light what many in the MMA world realized already - performance-enhancing drugs are extremely prevalent in the fighting ring.

Mma (MMA) emerged in the 1990s as an underground sport, which integrated fighting styles from striking to grappling, into one unique sport. Originally considered barbaric and dangerous, it was banned in many circles. By the early 2000s, the underground sport started out to gain more and more visibility, and therefore, reliability. New standards for fighting were introduced to improve seeing pleasure and be sure fighters were protected from unnecessary accidental injuries.
