Prepare for massive amounts of drama in both the UFC/MMA communities and the supplement and muscle-building industries.
By now, you’ve probably heard that mixed martial artist Holly Holm soundly defeated former UFC champion Ronda Rousey.
This sparked major interest in Holm and her sponsors, and one of those sponsors turned out to be Intel Pharma, a supplement company that previously sold the SARM Ostarine (MK-2866), a patented investigational drug owned by GTx Inc.
The product in question was named Ostadrol.
Since this discovery, reporters from major media outlets have been flying to the scene, making phone calls, sending emails, and getting their stories together. Ultimately…
SARMs are about to get nuked off the face of this planet
Here comes the press
We’ve been talking about SARMs for a while now. Our biggest fears are about to be realized: due to the behavior of a few bad actors in the supplement scene, the entire industry is probably about to get rocked.
Despite Nutrition Distribution’s attempts to get SARMs off the market through their SARM anti-competitive lawsuits (we have another PDF to post this week), they are still for sale on the market, and it is only a matter of time before it all blows up in the industry’s face.
This is that moment.
Prepare for articles from USA Today, Forbes, New York Times, etc etc, asking how this could have gone on for so long, and how it can be fixed. Questions are coming. Changes will follow.
Is Intel Pharma still selling SARMs?
By all indications, they are not.
It seems that Nutrition Distribution’s legal scare tactics worked extremely well, and Intel Pharma pulled them from the market once they received legal threats, as Nutrition Distribution had planned.
That all occurred before the Rousey upset.
However, they are likely going to have the misfortune of being thrust into the middle of this situation when it hits the major press outlets.
Other brands won’t be so lucky…
Other brands, however, are still selling the drugs, and they can expect to face the full wrath of the FDA, Congress, and possibly the DEA when this hits the headlines.
Did Holly Holm use Ostarine / Ostadrol
We don’t know. We can only assume she is well-tested.
We’ll keep this post up to date.
Update: The press has begun
There are two major articles so far, and they’re honestly not that damning.
They also include an official statement by Landon Suggs of Intel Pharma:
The biggest question is what the public and governmental reaction is going to be after the dust settles on this specific situation. Our guess is that SARMs are seeing their final days.
