    How come we never seen that in MMA?

    in almost all cases except Brock, a failed drug test makes you ineligible for a scheduled fight... but Canelo/GGG rematch was still on track and was only canceled because of Canelo's decision?

    the steroid he tested for is found in tainted mexican meat, It's a known issue

    there was a mexican ufc fighter who was acquitted for the same issue under usada I believe

    the tainted meet is just as weak as tainted supplement.

    except It is a genuinely known issue in sports for mexican athletes

    Tainted supplements Is also a massive epidemic

    It can be just an excuse but It does genuinely happen

    if canalo knows that than why wouldn't he take better steps to get meet from usa to make sure he clean. Oscar even said he was doing his training camp in cal. so to me it seems like he found a loop hole.

    that also why usada says there no supplement worth risking yout career taking.

    USADA has longer suspensions than AC's.

    if i remember correctly, he didn't fail a test from the NSAC

    it was a third party random drug test, which the NSAC doesn't have jurisdiction over

    BUT he was scheduled to have a hearing, and it seemed like the NSAC were going to suspend him, so they decided to pull the fight. it's better to reapply for a license than actually be suspended and have to go through it again

    All that money in boxing.

    They're all on PEDs. Even the fat guys.

    A level athletes are a myth.

    They're just above average athletes on great PEDs. Some better than others.

    the problem with MMA is that UFC fighters are contractually obligated to the promotion and that involves upholding USADA testing

    but you could see it all the time if other promotions were willing to have these guys fight - Frank Mir, for example, was only USADA suspended but he wasn't suspended by any athletic commission

    “Tainted Mexican Meat” has to be the best excuse I have heard to date. Now that we know about this, will the testing agencies put “Tainted Mexican Meat” on the banned substance lists?

    You said something that never happens in MMA, and then preceded to mention Brock. Cognitive dissonance.

    Brocks positive was returned after the fight, so Im not sure why you are saying "all cases except brock" because it didnt happen in brocks case

    except it didnt happen with brock, so he proves his own point (totally accidentally of course)
