Holm endorsement ‘looks highly suspicious’

Curated by

The Texas-based company, one of Holm’s sponsors, sells supplements advertised as containing substances that are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Lenny Fresquez, Holm’s manager, told USA TODAY Sports Monday night that he and the fighter were aware before signing the sponsorship deal that Intel Pharma sold products containing banned substances. Rousey has been the most tested UFC athlete to date under its new drug testing program, having provided nine separate samples for testing, according to UFC.

  • Victor Conte, founder of the Bay Area Lab Co-Operative (BALCO) that provided legal and illegal supplements to athletes, said that in the wake of Holm’s stunning, second-round knockout over Rousey on Saturday in Australia, her business relationship with Intel-Pharma is a concern.
  • At JAKnutrition.com, four Intel-Pharma products for sale are labeled as Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMS), considered steroid alternatives and on WADA’s banned substance list.
  • Holly Holm celebrates after beating Ronda Rousey on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.
