Why is the UFC so obsessed with drug testing whereas Japanese promotions allow so much more freedom to their fighters as to what they want to put in their bodies? For a country that prides itself as being named upon freedom, I can't think of a promotion in any other country that allows their fighters less freedom to choose what supplements they want to take. Is the more tolerant attitude of the Japanese promotions towards allowing fighters to benefit from medical science primarily a manifestation of their cultural values or something else? Time has shown that trying to control people as opposed to allowing them freedom to do what they want with their own bodies never works. Is this just one more sign that our country no longer places the same value on freedom that our founding fathers did?
