Sometimes steroids just don't do the trick ... just ask UFC's Stephan Bonnar, who got crushed by Anderson Silva during last month's UFC fight.

After Bonnar's loss -- which triggered his retirement from the UFC -- he was tested and Drostanolone (an anabolic steroid) showed up in his system ... according to MMAjunkie.com.

Here's the thing ... this isn't the first time this has happened to to Bonnar. He tested positive for a steroid substance back in 2006 after UFC 62. He was suspended and fined.

As for the Silva fight, Bonnar lost by TKO and the steroids make Silva's win all the more impressive.

of course he used steroids...very sad
but american white male are the weakest -the most stupid males in the world
i wish it was not so but they just are
they know nothing - bunch of empty baskets
can you imagine this? but the truth is every one in the world hates them
or wants to kill them : either or..
they are the only group of men that wear their emotion on their sleeves
the most racist, the most hateful, the most disgusting
the most evil hearted
the most childish and despicable group of males on earth
i will never date an american white male
they make my skin crawl
i hate men that cheat in life or in general
and hate men that dont love other human beings

Bonner was always a sluggish, jerky robotic puncher and other than his ability to take a punch, he was not much more than a Irish style bar brawler...(on steroids it seems).

Best UFC fight of all time was Stephan Bonner vs Forrest Griffin.
They pounded the tar out of each other, neither one going down, full of fight and stamina.
Watching that fight was like being a kid again watching a Rocky movie at the theater, gave that never-give-up feeling, face it and fight it and don't back down.
Gotta Youtube and watch Stephan and Forrest again...

Losing to Anderson did not trigger his retirement from the UFC. He was going to retire until he got the fight and decided to have the fight because of who he was fighting. If it was not Anderson Silva he was fighting Bonner would have retired prior.

It's a steroid used to cut weight while keeping your muscle mass. Like Matt Scott said, he was going to retire anyway, probably took this fight for the cash and to go out fighting the best guy. Needed a little help to make the weight in the amount of time he had and got caught.

Sad, how Americans have to use drugs to compete. No talent, no skill, no will.
