Craig Jones reveals steroid stack for upcoming UFC FPI match

Top no-gi competitor Craig Jones revealed his steroid stack in preparation for his upcoming match against Rafael Lovato Jr.

Steroid usage in professional submission grappling has become a bit of an open secret, with promotions turning a blind eye to rampant PED use and a number of top competitors openly using steroids.

Two-time ADCC silver medalist and B-Team leader Craig Jones recently took the discussion around steroids to a new level and revealed his steroid stack. 

The Australian is set to take on veteran Rafael Lovato Jr. in the main event of the UFC Fight Pass Invitational 6 on Sunday, March 3. As he explains in the video below, Jones is ramping up his steroid use in preparation for the match.

In typical Jones fashion, he includes some humor, as well as, perhaps, a veiled dig at former teammate Gordon Ryan.

Guys, today I’m revealing my UFC Fight Pass Invitational 4 steroid stack. So I’ll be preparing against Rafael Lovato and I have to take my recovery seriously. The cornerstone of recovery for me is steroids. 

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about recovery methods for athletes and regular people. It’s all revolved around saunas and cold plunges. But really, deep down, we all know what that really is. It’s not recovery. That’s a large group of lonely men who desperately need a friend and they’ve forgotten how to ask another man how to hang out. They have to get on the horn and say, ‘Hey, have you heard about heat shock proteins? You should really come around to my house and jump in the sauna with me and after that, we’ll have a cold plunge.’

Guys, The sauna, ice bath epidemic isn’t about recovery, it’s about loneliness. You want to take recovery seriously, get on steroids, and this is my steroid stack revealed right here: 200 mg of testosterone cypionate, 200 mg of deca and 50 mg a day of anavar. That’s what I’ll be taking for this Rafael Lovato match, and it’s provided by my sponsor, Evertitan.

In addition to his March 3 showdown against Lovato, Jones is slated to take on current UFC welterweight fighter Phillipe Rowe in Mexico City at a Pit Submission Series event on February 23.
