Interesting to note the UFC's willingness to cover the expenses without even so much as an objection raised. One would think this news would have caught Zuffa off-guard and they would have protested, at least to some degree, the ruling considering what kind of money this may cost them. But in the article below, I see no mention of anything of the sort.

UFC executive Marc Ratner also attended the meeting and confirmed the promotion would be willing to foot the bill for all additional testing.

I wonder what role Zuffa played in this personally. Considering their history with the NSAC, I get the impression this was all discussed before hand. It sounds like Josh is being snowballed here, whether he manages to successfully pass the tests or not.

For more information on Zuffa and the NSAC's history with one another:

Barnett has no choice, if he wants to fight under that jurisdiction.

lol dude, i'm not sure what's funnier:

a) that you build a whole story around UFC corruption solely on the premise that they hire refs & judges in locations where there is no AC to hire refs & judges, or
b) that you apparently didn't know until last month that Zuffa hires refs & judges in locations where there is no AC to hire refs & judges.

i thank you for that thread. i needed a good laugh
