randy-couture98765Jose Aldo just opened a can of performance-enhanced worms. The featherweight champion just pointed a finger directly at UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture about PED use. Speaking with Brazilian MMA source, TATAME, Aldo said that his team—Nova Uniao—is possibly the ONLY gym that doesn’t use some type of performance enhancers in training.

He also stated that if needed, he would also use TRT to compete. That’s an interesting stance to take publicly, especially by a champion. Also surprising is his accusations toward Couture and other American fighters.  “Americans have always used,” he said.  “Randy Couture fought until he was almost 50 years, and you tell me that the guy was clean?”

We’ve heard accusations like this before, but not many. Nick Diaz recently upset Georges St-Pierre when he claimed that GSP was on “plenty of steroids.” St-Pierre is now campaigning for VADA testing in future fights. We haven’t heard a response from Couture, and quite frankly I’m not sure if we will. For the record, Couture never tested positive for any substance throughout his career. And since he’s retired, there’s little chance he’ll ever face testing again.
