They are the poster boy and girl of the UFC. Maybe you prefer the Viking warrior Gus or the American Hero Weidman?

Cheaters, roiders, PED users will ALWAYS just find a new way to cheat and beat the system.

The "improved" drug testing doesn't appear to serve any useful purpose.

Plenty of people will still get away with using PEDs. Some guys will get busted for using PEDs. Other guys will test positive who never used them to begin with. The sport will be no safer and less fair than it would be if there were no drug testing at all.

Whatever, life goes on.

It's better to have the testing if the penalties for failing are severe enough. I like the idea of random testing for all employees of the UFC, at any time. In a sport where people can get seriously injured, someone hopped up on the juice and in a roid rage doesn't need to be fighting.

I agree with everything except some guys will get busted for PED's who never used them. If that's true that would be bad. Someone getting banned for a year not making money while they are innocent.

Drug tests aren't perfect and neither are the people performing them. Perform enough tests and it eventually becomes a statistical certainty that you will have some inaccurate positive results.

Maybe he means the UFC's improved attempts at PR spin and ignoring and hoping it all just goes way.

They turned their back on their biggest star/moneymaker & wanted no part in his calls for tougher testing. That shows you how much they care.
yep i probably just spelled it wrong ,it's probably comissions going harder for UFC fighters with improved drug testing ,i think before they just used piss tests ,now they are doing blood tests.

And yes UFC caught Bigfoot if i'm not mistaken in Australia and Palhares.
