    It seems the Warmaster fall in love with roids (again).

    Caught by USADA and probably get suspended for a year.

    I'll say Barnett should go to RIZIN.

    Rizin could be successful if they can pick up "popped" fighters who are not willing to wait to fight.

    I hope so. He fits in perfect with RIZIN for various reasons and he always comes off better fighting in the ring.

    If Rizin starts to get a little bigger I could definitely see a lot of these older guys making the jump over once their UFC contracts run out. Those USADA fines are going to drive a lot of guys away.

    I believe Filthy Tom Lawlor got popped recently as well too, he would definitely fit in over at Rizin.

    Josh Barnett will be in the corner of Alyssa Garcia.

    He never fell out of love. I'm good with Rizin taking him in though as they took in CC, Wand, etc who had drug problems.

    Lawlor would probably be game with being in the next OW tournament if they do another. I don't know how well he'd do but I think he's better that a few guys who were in this one.

    Agreed. I mean I don't who Jon Jones is for the most part, but the fact that he got hit for taking some off-brand Viagra has to be met with some opposition. I mean being a prize fighter doesn't make you any less Human, and they aren't able to dictate to you what happens in your own bedroom.

    I mean Mark Hunt said it best, they don't give a fuck about others roiding if they have a huge freakshow pay out, they'll toss you under the bus even if it puts their fighters in mortal danger=, to them its just a 'cost of doing business.'

    Fuck them, take the roids, Ubereem and come back to Japan!

    I'd gladly pay to watch him and Verhooven go at it in mixed rules bout. At least in Japan they respect them enough to not treat them like children, payment(s), however...

    Pretty sure he'll be in RENA's corner on NYE too.

    Roy Nelson would also be a big draw for RIZIN, but instead of giving him roids they can just feed him more ramen and yakiniku.

    Remember these guys getting popped are still under UFC contract. So unless they let them go they aren't going anywhere. Josh though I can see them cutting him lose at this point of his career.

    It's also kind of sad some fans want an org to grow on the backs of proving cheaters.


    P.S.: These fighters need to grow up some. I agree some of this shit they get busted for is ticky tacky shit. But all you have to do is fill out the damn form of what the hell your taking. Not leave shit off of it. Check what you can and can't take under a prescription or with out one. I'm assuming every fighter has some number to contact USDA if need be to check in before taking something. Just take 10 mins out of your day and do your homework when need be.
