    Which fighter got the most and least backlash when they've been caught using PEDs? A fighter who was caught but still manage to have their good reputation? A fighter who went downhill career wise when they've gotten caught?

    Good rep? Romero, Belfort, Lyoto, Chael, Anderson, Wandy

    Bad Rep? Nick Diaz, Jon Jones, Lesnar

    I think Nick has taken the most backlash
    Lesnar let off the easiest

    To me using is cheating, no matter who does it.

    There was a time when Josh Barnett was thought never to fight in the UFC ever again do to a failed drug test that cancelled an old mma org.

    Also i think he popped like 3x's in his career.

    I can't stand chael, his voice and general attitude annoys me but even without that i have no respect for anyone who pops, it's a professional sport at the highest level, no excuses are justified, fight clean or do something else for a living.

    lol wtf are you talking about? No one ever talks shit about Nick for being a pot head, well very rarely anyway

    Barnett never gets any hate on here (he is a cool guy so I kinda get it) despite the fact he's a prolific steroid cheat, and one could argue him getting popped destroyed an entire organisation.

    Lyoto doesn't deserve hate as he was using DHEA which had only been banned a few months before and is a supplement you can buy at your local shop.

    I meant career backlash.. but Nick is under appreciated/rated due to his pot smoking

    Nate the great didn't seem to get a lot of hate and he popped serval times if I'm correct .
    Vitor i think has copt a lot of flack and rightfully so i guess the guy was a killer and now looks very sub par since being off TRT .

    I would politely disagree, Nick's a great fighter but he hasn't won a fight in just over 5 years, that's probably why he's under appreciated.

    Frank Mir and it's not even close.

    He basically gets a pass since most people figure his career is over anyway, and his "kangaroo meat" excuse was worth a few chuckles. (and also 'Murica)
