    I guess this is the question Dana sluffed off answering at the scrum.

    Don't think that will affect him unless he tries to fight wherever he took that test.

    So did this recently happen or did this happen in 2012?

    UFC's reaction will be to ignore it until they can't because of the media.

    It looks like that ban was in 2012 so it was some time ago. Also pulled this from the article

    I doubt this will have any effect on his upcoming fight with Johnson.

    So i read the article and it doesn't seem to be a steroid? Also dana is saying that it's not a big deal so the fight is still on.

    at first thought i was thinking "a 125 lbs dude busted for roids?"


    i dont see how this will affect 174 if the incident occurred in 2012

    I doubt it has any sort of impact on UFC 174.

    Yeah if it does they have options, probably just pick Dodson off the fight night card and make the rematch.

    The funny thing is I bet you the UFC had no idea about this.

    No, Dana's aware and more or less said it was no big deal at the media scrum today.

    A hockey player got caught in the olympics for using nasal spray with a banned substance. He's banned from international play but not the NHL, since it's for some reason legal there.

    It almost seems like athletes can't even medicate themselves these days. What the hell is a nasal spray going to do?

    Unless Ali blinds DJ with the nasal spray.

    He will still fight MM. The UFC will be testing him though.

    Me too.

    I'm sure Ravden would be as well, along with a grand total of about six other posters on this website lol.
