You can spot him at 6m 21s curling the infamous 35s! The secret of his success.


#5

Okay, I might have him confused with one of the other steroid boys, but didn't he have some serious health issues not long ago?


#6

Yep, according to the "other website" he was diagnosed with a kidney disease called Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in 2000.

He had a kidney transplant and is greatly limited in the amount of protein he can now ingest each day. He was doing martial arts tourneys and was trying to get into films.

Not sure how that worked out though.
