In a recent interview with MMANews, “Hollywood” Dan Henderson has some choice words to say about fellow PRIDE alumni Paulo Filho:

MMANews.com:What are your thoughts on Paulo Filho?

Dan Henderson: I don’t think he has been very impressive in his last two performances since coming to the US but I think that’s what not being able to use Steroids will do to you.

MMANews.com:Are you saying Filho may be a juicer?

Dan Henderson: Well that’s my opinion anyway. He hasn’t looked good since he left Pride.

MMANews.com: Was steroid abuse a problem in Pride?

Dan Henderson: People didn’t get tested.

    i agree he is good but i would not put him in the top 5 m.w. and dan seems like a up and up guy i don't think he would talk shit if he did not beleave it was true.

    If "Dangerous" Dan Henderson dislikes someone in the MMA world it's for a reason. Henderson is a world class fighter and one of the best in the world. Any guys Henderson does'nt like, I would'nt like either. Good luck to the "Dangerous One" in March when he kicks Anderson Silva's ass.

    I can believe that. I can tell from his recent fights that he has a ton of experience and technique but he just doesnt seem as strong and agressive.

    yeah that's why most people agree that filho should not be a top 5 middleweight. he hasn't been the same since leaving pride and getting off the juice.

    As much as this could definitly be true…i really dont thinkg, regaurdless of personal feelings, Henderson should ever rat anyone out like that, the only conditions i would do that is if I had to fight him

    It is a strong accusation, but really I'll bet the percentage (of juicers) in MMA is much higher than everyone here thinks. I don't care who tests positive, it never surprises me.

    Well it looks like not just Paulo is a juicer, I think Cro-Cop, Shogun, and Wand are juicers too, if you've seen their preformance in the UFC is was anything but amazing as their glory days in Pride. I still would hope someone brings back some thing as good as Pride.:(

    Yes it's higher, but these fighters lost their magic with out the juice their mediorce. Maybe Pride didn't test but it was magic just viewing one of their shows, well at least some of us still have our Pride dvd's to remember the good old days of MMA. :)

    Cro-Cop was a bad ass in PRIDE now he looks like he would be better off directing traffic in Croatia and giving out parking tickets. His performance in the UFC has been anything but exciting, I believe this guy had to be on the juice. What happened to Cro-Cop we used to know??????

    BJ Penn is one to talk shit about juicers @ sean….hell Bj is a pothead. He's just pissed because he (BJ) is built like a pudgy 12 year old boy!

    he may look like that but he kicks ass and will beat sherk,as far as the pot who cares its not even close to steroids and b.j has not tested positive for pot like sherk did for steroids so why bring it up.
