Here is what mendes had to say, interesting he thinks 80% of the fighters are on it
Chard says, "I've never been caught" when discussing Aldo's allegations of him using roids. Not exactly saying, "I'm clean" or "I don't use PEDs."

True, but still against the rules. Personally I have no problem with people using PEDS to get over an injury. My main concern with PEDs is making sure it is a level playing field, I would like to see stringent testing that means almost no one is on them, or everyone on the same gear so there are no unfair advantages. But imperfect world etc and cost of testing comes into it. Gr

This is one reason why the world thinks that Americans are annoying. Many believe that the USA is like some lone bastion of morality and integrity.

He could have at least given the token resposne of I'm clean. Referring to his high school achievements to show he's clean means nothing. American High School Sports have some of the most juiced athletes on the planet.

If you look at Mende's instagram you can see his diet isn't exactly the best. Yet he is probably in the top 3 pound for pound most ripped guys in the sport.

Id probably say at least 80 percent of fighters are probably taking something, Mendes said. You know, theres guys that are coming back from injury trying to take it. Whether its them trying to survive, pay their mortgage, pay rent or whatever -- or guys just trying to get that full advantage to be at the top. So yeah, I think theres a lot of people taking performance enhancing drugs.

With time the system will be refined, but the Team Alpha Male product worries about how such rules will apply to international fighters like Aldo.

I like it [random drug testing]. The only thing I question about the system is what do we do about guys that are out of the country? Guys in Brazil, guys in Japan, can we trust those random drug tests? Mendes said. I was thinking about this the other day: If someone were to knock on Aldos door in Brazil and say, We need to give you a random drug test, and he says Heres $1,000, go away, its done. I feel like something like that could happen very easily. I just want to know what the system would be -- how could we trust that its going to be fair everywhere?
Great quote from Mendez and I have wondered this myself. Corruption also exists here in the US so I'm sure it can happen anywhere.

Perhaps because he didn't want to lie.

Get some random testing done for this fight please.
Mendes basically has just said "NO YOU" as a response.

Even a juiced Mendes would lose to Aldo, so I can understand why Mendes is trying to get the title other ways (ie: getting Aldo stripped). He's out of options everywhere else.
