If PED usage is openly allowed, then it will be junior high guys using them to make the high school wrestling or football team.

This. And once ped's became legal under strict supervision by doctors or the likes (which would obviously be required), the way of cheating would simply become using MORE ped's than the rest of the bunch and than what was allowed, leading to severe health implications, even deaths. Inevitably.

And there goes mma as a sanctioned sport. There goes the sponsors. There goes the top athletes.

What if you're independently wealthy like Bj Penn and can spend hundreds of thousands on.training camps and partners. While Joe blow preliminary card fighter still has to work at the local bar and train wherever, whenever and whoever with. Not really the same level playing field is it?

I say you're an adult. It's your body. Do with what you wish. Allow all PEDS. Just regulate them. So fighters don't die of heart attacks and stuff.
