    White was later asked if he thought the drug testing in the sport, which is handled by individual commissions, and not the UFC is sufficient. To that, White was quick to answer to the affirmative, "I think we have the best system in all of sports. Wanderlei Silva just got caught (and) he didn't even fight yet. They're chasing guys around. They're pre-testing. They're random testing. If you do anything in this sport, you will get caught."

    Of course he'd say that. He has to; it's his job. Yet in truth I'm sure these guys have been getting away with it until now.

    I'd wager a large sum of money that a lot of guys don't get caught.

    That might be the most asinine thing that I've ever heard.

    Its his job, there are people that use that know specifically how to pass the tests and those athletes pay someone to ensure that they pass any and all tests. If the ufc did random tests year round they would catch alot more users. For the most part the tests are at a set time, which is why Wand did not take his test, he most likely knew he was not in a part of his cycle where he was masking whatever he *may* have been using.

    If the UFC did olympic style testing alot more of the cards would invoke the subject to change as many users would be caught.

    This is probably hyperbole, and if it is true it honestly doesn't mean much, drug testing in professional sports as a whole is pitiful

    Olympic sports, the US Olympic Comitee will even test their athletes independently to make sure they don't get caught by the IOC
