    Comes off pretty shady, but with USADA coming in, we lost guys like Ubereem, Trtor....and the list is long....

    I mean it doesn't really look like very consistent if at all, but losses are too great.

    Usually not a fan of your threads, but agreed on this.

    With USADA in effect, these fighters look very human. I remember the days of Ubereem, Vitrtor, Pride Fedor (if you know what i mean), Roided Wanderlei. Those guys looked like superheroes.

    Worst being the 27 months they stole from Jon Jones' prime.

    I don't mind it. Either fight clean or get better at cheating. The latter option works well for Jon.

    I'm on the fence with USADA.

    I appreciate what the original goal was to clean up the sport.

    But they have fucked up so many times. They come off as extremely shady.

    Their intentions were good... but as a fan I'd rather watch Alisteroid Testostereem knee people's intestines into Bolivia

    It's actually made the playing field more unfair. It was an amazing business move but I wish now that its objective was accomplished they would quietly scuttle it over time. We get less fights and more injuries with no upside.

    I really think usada is actually making it unhealthy for the fighters.

    Peds help with absorbing strikes and recovery.

    Now you see fighters gas, and then getting mauled

    Imagine Cormier and Ngannou with rocket fuel...

    Too bad Ubereem only showed up once in UFC, and he even made Brawk looks NATTY

    Whenever Brawk jumps I saw this...
