    Can someone please tell me how you tear a pectoral muscle, when you’re as chest strong as Alves is? The only way I could see that happening to a dude like that, was if he tried to max bench, and tore a muscle. And, if that’s the case, then is he making up a cover story, saying he injured it in training? Sounds like a weight training incident. I don’t get fools who want a huge chest for fighting purposes.

      Pectoral tears are usually the result of too much strain on the tendon. I’m not sure if Alves is juicing, but it is not uncommon for bodybuilders and powerlifters to tear their pecs. The reason is that, while certain steroids will increase muscle strength, they do NOT increase tendon strength. The end result is a muscle that can lift more than the tendon can handle…resulting in a tear.

    Biggest mistake Dana made was doing medical plan. Bruised titties, hangnail amputations. Fighters are pussies.
