MacDonald revealed that he was himself surprised by Zahabi’s comments. Here’s what he had to say:

I was a bit surprised, because I’d never really heard him talk like that, especially in an interview. But I guess he really has a strong conviction for that in our sport. But he’s his own man. He can speak what he believes in his own interviews.

I can’t blame him. I don’t really know too much history about Jon and his steroids, but apparently, he’s been caught before. That’s on him, I guess. That’s on his conscience.

“I’m not proud of it, but it definitely put me in a better position going through it, ” Fitch accepted Zahabi’s comments about his past with dignity and admitted that he is not proud of it.
