Ex-UFC Fighter Blows Whistle on LeBron James, Says NBA Star Uses Performance-Enhancing Drugs: ‘We Have the Same Drug Guy’

Former MMA and UFC fighter Chael Sonnen has blown the whistle on LeBron James and accused the NBA star of using performance-enhancing drugs.

Sonnen made the allegations on Andrew Schulz’s “Flagrant” podcast, saying he knows where the age-defying basketball star sources his drugs.

Sonnen said: “If the world understood what LeBron did, like other basketball players will hear what LeBron does and go, ‘but that doesn’t matter.’

“It’s like a baseball player, and you’re hitting the stick — it doesn’t matter.

“If you knew what these performance-enhancers did, then you would know why it does matter.

“We have the same drug guy, I know exactly what he’s doing.

“It matters. Trust me that it matters.

“EPO (Erythropoietin)matters,” Sonnen said.

“It’s the reason Lebron takes it. It matters.

“And if other basketball players understood what it did.

“EPO increases your red blood cells, which gives you endurance so you can play all game long.

“You can shoot in the fourth quarter just like you shot in the fourth minute.

“It’s the king of performance enhancers.

“EPO is king to everything.”


According to Breitbart:

Some things Sonnen says can be “taken with a grain of salt.”

For instance, in the same podcast, Sonnen claimed he made $8 million from a UFC fight in 2012, but UFC financial records show way less than that. 

And in another segment, he said he is like “Robin Hood” because he “used to rob banks.” 

The latter tall tale is likely Sonnen’s overly dramatic description of his 2011 money laundering and mortgage fraud charges to which he pleaded guilty.
