Another Athlete Busted For 'Roids

We all know about the baseball players (too many to list) and then there's Floyd Landis and Tim Montgomery and most recently Shawne Merriman. Now add to the list the name of Stephan Bonnar of UFC fame. Bonnar is most known for being the first winner of UFC's Ultimate Fighter reality show. That won him a contract with the UFC after a classic fight with Forrest Griffin. Apparently Bonnar knew Griffin was a lot to handle and he wanted a little extra "edge" for the second fight. Of course by edge I mean anabolic steroids. Bonnar tested positive for anabolic steroids after his UFC 62 loss to Griffin. Bonnar was fined $5,000 and suspended for nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission Friday for the positive test. He will be eligible to fight again in May 2007. I can only imagine this picture is what it must have felt like after Bonnar found out he was busted. (If you don't follow UFC, that if Bonnar getting punched in the mizouth by Griffin from their last match.)
