It’s fair to say Shane Carwin isn’t having the best of weekend’s. As we just reported earlier, yesterday he invited what appears to have been the fan from hell to come out with him on a boating trip.

Today however  a far more serious matter has come to light.

On Friday a J. Michael Bennett, who was amongst a group of men described as a, ‘drug dealers in lab coats’, was sentenced to four years in jail for participating in a national conspiracy to sell anabolic steroids, AL.com reports.

A number of professional athletes were named during the trial as having received steroids from him, including UFC heavyweight star Shane Carwin.¬† Other familiar names on the list include pro-wrestler Kurt Angle and bodybuilder Toney ‘The X-Man’ Freeman.

It should be stressed that this appears to have occurred in a period between 2004-2006 – before Carwin was contracted to the UFC, and there’s no evidence to suggest that he is currently using steroids.

Nonetheless it’s a serious allegation and one that the 265lb fighter, who has enjoyed a clean-cut image during his time with the promotion, will surely need to address in the coming days.

    I am tired of all the cheaters and steroids. If a sport cannot do olympic style blood and urine testing for hgh, steroids, etc, then they are not going to get my money. Look at baseball. Even though the sport is boring and has many problems, steroids killed baseball’s revenue. I see the empty stands and see how cameras try to manipulate seating shots to make it appear there is a full stadium. A real man stands on his own two feet for what he is and struggles to change his weaknesses into strengths, not cheat with steroids. All those mma cheaters are just a bunch of losers, and regardless of the media hype or money thrown they will always look like that in everyone’s eyes, period. Why don’t I give everyone a bat who didn’t take steroids to even the playing field. Americans know their “pro” sports are tainted, and we don’t need to wait for congress to fix you. Everyone speaks of mma like it is a circus rather than a sport because of all the controversy. You are going the same route as fake wrestling or strongman competitions that make no money because of steroid losers. It is cause and effect. Less fans, less attendance at other venues like bars, means less money for all businesses around. Regulate steroids before it destroys your source of income. I know I am not going to any events until you fix this crap.

    List of Steroid Cheaters, some are still with their organizations after a slap on the wrist.ex Chris Leben

    JOSH BARNETT (now with strikeforce), TIM SYLVIA, KIMO LEOPOLDO, NATE MARQUARDT, VITOR BELFORT, STEPHAN BONNAR, PAWEL NASTULA, KIT COPE, JOHNNIE MORTON, ROYCE GRACIE, JORGE ORTIZ, PHIL BARONI, SEAN SHERK (still with UFC), HERMES FRANCA, ANTHONY TORRES, BILL MAHOOD, ADAM SMITH, JASON WINTHERS, RUBEN VILLAREAL, DENNIS HALLMAN, ALEXANDER CRISPIM, CARINA DAMM, ALEXANDRE NOGUEIRA, ANTONIO SILVA, EDWIN DEWEES, CHRIS LEBEN (still with UFC), KIRILL SIDELNIKOV, KEN SHAMROCK, JOSH BARNETT, COLE PROVINCE, CHAEL SONNEN (still with UFC), SHANE CARWIN (not caught but federal link to purchase of steroids).

    Really, you cheat, you get another chance, BS!!!

    For everyone who supports steroid use, I don’t know what to say. You are either born a man or not, and compensating by drugs pretty much answers those questions. Everyone can see when most anyone really abuses steroids, and notes records broken, and people dying of cancer early. I hope those that support it take it and die from the stuff so the rest of us can enjoy this rock with a few less losers on it.

    Piss tests are not good enough because any cheater can use a catheter and fill his bladder with whatever at any time. The testing is also not that costly, for blood and urine, so that argument don’t fly with me either. Also sports need to publicly state who was on what whenever they fail a test. Football and baseball keep their information private other than announcing a failed PED. I hear about a steroid user and I boycott and bad mouth.
