On October 26, 1897, McLeod defeated Martin “Farmer” Burns to win the American Catch as Catch Can Heavyweight Championship, which he would retain for four years. The most notable incident during his reign as champion came far away from the media spotlight when on June 18, 1899; McLeod met and defeated a young Frank Gotch in a hard-fought impromptu match on a cinder track. It was Gotch’s very first professional match and he later recounted that McLeod had hustled all involved by pretending to be a simple furniture dealer from a neighboring town, but was impressed enough by Gotch’s talent to leave him a visiting card revealing his true identity.
“The reality is, especially with this whole steroid epidemic, one thing we have to realize is the use of steroids is less than 100 years old,” Rogan said. “There’s always been something people have taken, but the actual use of anabolic steroids in human beings is relatively recent in human history.

The 41-year-old (8 years older than Brunson) black belt in Bjj, judo, tae-kwon-do and former Ufc Mw champion Anderson Silva entered this fight with a pro mma record of 33-8-0 ( 79% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the middleweight in the world but his last ‘clean’ victory occurred in 2012 when he faced Stephan Bonnar (= Silva vs Bonnar ). In fact ‘The Spider, after this bout, was defeated twice by Chris Weidman (= Silva vs Weidman I and Weidman vs Silva II ) and he came back to win just in 2015 against Nick Diaz (= Silva vs Diaz ) but the result was overturned in a no-contest after the Brazilian tested positive for drostanolone and androsterone.
