Sonnen never took steroids, but good calculated bashing there.

Hermes Franca tested positive after a title fight.....his reason was he was injured but had to get the payday. Personally the way the UFC gives out random title shots I don't blame him one bit for doing it.

Testosterone = steroid.

Name a title bout where the winner got caught using PEDs. I'm pretty sure that anybody who wins and tests positive will get a much bigger smack from the UFC than a contender who loses his title shot. A PED champion is a huge embarrassment.

I don't anybody has actually got busted and come back for an immediate title shot. Even Sonnen had to fight Stann first. Overeem is not going a shot (unless Cain/JDS gets injured).

In any area with competition, and high stakes everyone is looking for every edge they can get, and in many cases get away with.
