    As a very dedicated fan, and off and on avid trainer of MMA i'm dissappointed. But, what can you do?

    Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid occurring naturally in the human body, albeit in small quantities. Nandrolone is most commonly sold commercially as its decanoate ester (Deca-Durabolin) and less commonly as a phenylpropionate ester (Durabolin).

    Nandrolone decanoate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women (though now not recommended) at a dose of 50 mg every three weeks. It is also used for some aplastic anaemias.
    Nandrolone binds to the androgen receptor to a greater degree than testosterone, but due to its inability to act on the muscle in ways unmediated by the receptor, has less overall effect on muscle growth. The drug is also unusual in that unlike most anabolic steroids, it is not broken down into the more reactive DHT by the enzyme 5α-reductase, but rather into a less effective product known as Dihydronandrolone. As such, some of the negative effects associated with most such drugs are somewhat mitigated.

    The positive effects of the drug include muscle growth, appetite stimulation and increased red blood cell production and bone density. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective in treating anaemia, osteoporosis and some forms of neoplasia including breast cancer, and also acts as a progestin-based contraceptive. For these reasons[citation needed], in the United States nandrolone received FDA approval in 1983, and while sale in the U.S. is now restricted by the Controlled Substances Act, nandrolone remains available by prescription in most countries which have not adopted American-style "War on Drugs" anti-steroid campaigns. In addition to legal production, Nandrolone is also extensively used by bodybuilders and other athletes seeking an edge in professional competition.

    Because nandrolone is not broken down into DHT, the deleterious effects common to most anabolic steroids on the scalp, skin, and prostate are lessened to a degree. The lack of alkylation on the 17α-carbon drastically reduces the drug's liver toxicity. Estrogenic effects resulting from reaction with aromatase are also mitigated as a result of the drug being a progestin, but effects such as gynaecomastia and reduced libido still occur in larger doses. Other side-effects can include erectile dysfunction (coined as "Deca ****") and cardiovascular damage, as well as several ailments resulting from the drug's effect of lowering levels of luteinizing hormone through negative feedback.

  2. Yeah, there's a thread on this in the MMA section. A LOT of guys are getting caught lately. It's almost surprising to have a show go by and have no one piss hot.

    I'm surprised that these guys would use Nandro knowing how long the half life is.
