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.
