Tom Watson: Most UFC middleweights are on some 'stuff,' eyes Chris Camozzi fight

Esther Lin

Is it steroids or is it testosterone? Tom Watson doesn't know what exactly, but he believes most fighters in the middleweight division are on some type of "stuff."

There go those accusations again.

Though Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Tom Watson didn't exactly say what, he believes the majority of fighters in the 185-pound division are on some type of "stuff."

The British banger believes that's one of the reasons why the middleweight class is so "tough," as the former BAMMA champion quickly found out, losing his Octagon debut to Brad Tavares at UFC on FUEL TV 5 last September.

While he didn't say Tavares was on the "stuff," he feels most of the field is, as he recently declared in an interview with Rick J. Lee:

"It's difficult in my division because I think most in my division are on some stuff, so just whoever is out there to fight. Joe Silva matches pretty good fights. I've got a few injuries to clear up, I haven't got on testosterone to speed up my healing, so we'll see what happens. A lot of people have called out Wanderlei but I think he is staying at 205 and so, it doesn't make a lot of sense to him, so I can understand it. I felt like I could generate some amusement of myself and some of his fans. Chris Camozzi, I think he's won four in a row now in my division, so, maybe that's a fight a few people have been tweeting about. There's so many guys in my division so I'll just see what comes up."

After his loss to Tavares, Watson managed to get back in the win column with an impressive second round technical knockout (TKO) of Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on FUEL TV 7, earning him both "Knockout of the Night" and "Fight of the Night" honors.

"Kong" previously tried to ruffle some feathers and pick a fight with Wanderlei Silva shortly after "The Axe Murderer" put Brian Stann to sleep at UFC on FUEL TV 8 in Saitama, Japan, telling the former PRIDE FC champion to "Stay on your supplements at 205, or come to 185 and get knocked the fuck out."

While Joe Silva keeps searching for "Kong's" next foe -- seeing as how Wanderlei is likely to stay in the light heavyweight division -- he wouldn't mind mixing it up with the red-hot Chris Camozzi,who is currently riding a four-fight win streak under the UFC banner.

I wonder if he's one of those that's allegedly on the "stuff."
