Lebron James’ son, Bronny James allegedly suffered his heart attack due to using steroids, UFC legend Chael Sonnen has claimed.
Sonnen in reacting to news of Bronny’s heart attack made a general post about how the use of certain steroids – specifically Erythropoietin (EPO) – can lead to cardiac arrest.
He mentioned no names but it was clear who he was referring to.
Chael Sonnen, a former top UFC middleweight contender, wrote: “If you do not properly monitor, your EPO use you can experience cardiac arrest and die in your sleep. If you do not properly monitor your EPO use, and you go into cardiac arrest in front of other people there is a good chance somebody will get you help in time and you will survive.”
He added: “If you monitor your EPO use, but you combine it with testosterone you have a whole other set of problems in front of you. Hoping we can chalk this up to ‘lesson learned.’”
