article I had read before just said 10:1, so those are all the other figures.When news broke of Alistair Overeem's positive test for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio on Wednesday, it was only known that the number was greater than 10:1. Now, the actual number has come down from the lab, and Overeem's T/E ratio tested at 14:1.
For comparison's sake, the allowable by the World Anti-Doping Agency is 4:1, with anything over registering as a positive test. The Nevada State Athletic Commission allows for a slightly higher mark at 6:1. Regardless, Overeem was well over either of those marks.
Not sure if it was an MMA fighter or not, but that's the highest according to NSAC.
Some men actually naturally have higher levels of testosterone... It's rare but as high as 5:1 without any supplements or steroids. Anything in that vicinity would be permissible under 6:1 cutoff but 14:1 is obviously not natural in any way.
I have to take sometime off from BJJ myself. With the baby coming in a few months I need to save some loot! November will be 1 year of me training 2 times a week I can. I want to get my blue belt by next November (2 years of not that hard training).

its a satire, in case you don't want to be amused for a few minutes while reading
