Even though former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight champion Jose Aldo has never failed a pre- or post-fight drug test, that didn't stop Joe Rogan and Brendan Schaub from saying his body looked different, almost "deflated"at UFC 194.

Andre Pederneiras, Aldo's head trainer, did not appreciate the insinuation and speculation, taking to Twitter with a quickness this evening to provide photographic proof that his fighter's body hasn't changed that much over the years.

Check it out for yourself and draw your own visual conclusion:

"To the clown that thinks Aldo was on something and isn't anymore, draw your own conclusions," read the transcription courtesy of MMAFighting.

Aldo coughed up his 145-pound title to Conor McGregor following a first round knockout that took all of 13 seconds to execute (video). For what it's worth, Rogan did say on his podcast that it could simply be that "Scarface" decided to do more cardio in the lead up to his five-round title fight against "Notorious."

Schaub, on the other hand, still wasn't convinced, pointing to the fact his camp --Team Nova Unao -- has a bad win/loss record since the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) league instituted a more stringent drug testing program (details).

You've seen the picture, any of you clowns Maniacs see anything out of the ordinary?
