    Why not legalize it? People will always find new ways to cheat its the same with other sports. Its the athlete who takes the risk anyway. Peds can only help you in training doesnt help you during the fight itself. I always believe that its the fighters skill and talent that wins them the fight not the medicine that they took. Hell i can take all the peds known to man and mark hunt would still kick my ass in less than a minute. Those concern about fighters "well being" should stfu because its them who takes the risks. Its their fucking choice. I would do the same if that means giving my family a better shot at life.

    Legalize it. HGH doesn't just make athletes bigger and stronger, it also helps with recovering from injuries. People that are against HGH are against athletes recovering and having better lives.

    Steroids isn't legal in real life so they legit can't make it legal for their sport, they would get shut down as a company.

    You're making alot of sense, this is neither the time or place for that. Just wait till the cry babies show up, you'll see I'm right.

    I am only open to PED's that aid in the recovery process. If a fighter is grossly injured, and a PED is proven to expedite the recovery of said injury, a strict set of guidelines and a timeline that is out of competition could be implemented.

    Either make it totally legal (PRIDE).

    Or make the punishment so draconian no one would do them. (lifetime ban for one failed test)

    This is one instance where the middle ground sucks.

    Is there a law saying they have to conduct testing?

    Almost all steroid PED's cause congestive heart failure eventually. Its the reason so many BBuilding stars and WWE stars of the 80's and 90's died in their early 50's.

    I am facing this issue myself, as a result of PED usage, so im not just quoting the internet.

    I have a friend that is dying from cancer of the spinal cord based on HGH usage.

    Dont believe the hype bullshit. HGH makes ANY hidden cancer show up years in advance then what would have happened without it.

    My friend Greg is 44.

    Middle ground is all there ever has been. Lance Armstrong used methods to cheat he believed would never be caught. Most athletes would do the same.

    Money is a huge motivation to cheat.

    I only have one question. That being whether or not the law says they have to. Why not just give the answer?

    I don't know the rules in hell but the government in the United States is not allowed to dictate how a business runs itself. That being said had they not begun a thorough drug testing regiment, federal agents would have had the power to destroy the company. No, no law.

    The lifelong ban "might" change that. Lance had an incredible support team. He got nailed due to retroactive testing and a team member ratting him out.

    Most MMA fighters don't have a long enough career to worry about ten years down the road.
