    What do you take before performing?
    Is your girlfriend happy with it?

    Speaking as somebody who's fought, they allow nothing but water in the back before the fight.

    Nope. That’s why the Monster cans at pressers and workouts are empty

    I mean it’s not Xyience level performance enhancement but still potent enough to UFC

    Chael Sonnen said that they test for it, and there is a threshold for things like caffeine and aspirin and stuff.

    It's banned.

    I read this on reddit, posted by Joe Lauzon, they don't allow anything backstage other than a water canister provided by the promotion(UFC) which is sealed.

    That means as soon as they get in the building it's that water bottle(s) and that's it.

    If anyone is suspected of bringing in coffee or caffeine pills they get immediately tested and fined.

    So they don't test for it, but they watch what you do inside the locker room/arena.

    How could they enforce that...where were you fighting?

    I fight professionally and myself and my team mates (when I'm in their corner) are taking steroids half an hour before a fight....hell I did some coke before fight even
