    What if before announcing a failed test usada had the authority to search a fighters home, gym and or another place of interest. I bet a lot of fighters/gyms could be definitively caught out that way.

    Thoughts?

    Raids or roids?

    Both would be hysterical

    Perhaps but I don't think it is too unreasonable

    As it is Usada can turn up whenever they like and demand a sample from a fighter without reasonable suspicion that the fighter is on peds. A search would be more invasive but if limited to fighters who have recently popped and their affiliated gym's I don't think it would be taking things to far.

    They can turn up and request a sample.

    Torn to pieces is a bit of an exaggeration. Searching a gym would not be as invasive as searching a home. The home search would be limited to the guy who popped.

    It might be a step too far but I think it's worth a discussion

    I've watched American cop programs, I know how your police roll, cushions torn apart, draws pulled out, posters a s pictures off the wall, then they leave it all a shit tip and roll.

    Yeah wait what? If this was an option it would have been done st the start. Don't open the door without thinking through the consequences.

    @dimspace tracks the tests/samples taken by gym. He'd know.

    I can think of a few:
    Frank Mir
    Diego Brandao (pre-USADA)
    Overeem (hasn't failed though since moving to Jackson/Wink)
    Yoel Romero (I believe he failed prior to moving to J/W)
    Jon Jones (multiple times, for multiplt substances)

    Overall it somewhat appears that roiders move to Jackson/Wink and then don't get caught. Maybe they quit using or maybe they just get better at avoiding detection.
