If another fighter claimed everyone was on steroids would it slide?

    It seems like the Diaz bros get away with this stuff because Dana can say "they're potheads, and not very smart". Even so, Nate's mic got cut off right after he said that. Anyway, if it was someone else what do you think would happen?

    It did look like they cut Nate's mic...which was an odd thing to do considereing someone was going to hand him another live mic

    EDIT: This is probably the most correct thing Nate has ever said.

    Nate wasn't the first person or only person to say this. A lot of fighters said it before. But they are usually retired.

    "Shut him down, shut him down!"

    That shit made McG fly into a roid rage.

    One of the few times in history I've actually seen Nate sitting calmly while the OTHER dude went nuts.

    I don't even think Nate believes what he said, he was just looking for a way to rile Conor up like no one else has in a presser and it worked.

    Just deal with it.

    You cant accuse people now with the new testing. Everyone who has done it is too scared to do it and the ones that do get caught.

    Conor McGregor has been test how many times now? All random testing too.

    Conor should've said and I thought he was going to say, "Does that mean YOU take roids?"

    Instead, he brought up his team mate Giblert and Jake which was good too.

    To quote Nate Diaz, "Your on Steroids"
    In Seriousness I think this is Naive, new testing, new masking techniques, new designer steroids and HGH that is harder to detect, plus the UFC or any organisation dont want to catch everyone, just enough so your average Joe thinks its clean and regulated.

    A ton of people have said the same thing. I've seen like 50 people pointing fingers saying everyone else is on steroids except me lol.

    I said in another thread, that it's funny how they cut off his mic at the mention of steroids, maybe they thought he was going to list names.

    There are a lot of naive people. Years ago I got flamed to hell and I think even dubbed for so much as suggesting some of the fighters were on something. All they did was make sure the fighters who are broke get caught.

    Yes of course other fighters can and have done it. Bisping has been doing it forever, funny enough Rothwell has been doing it, Roy Nelson did and there are more

    This. You can tell by the smirk he gave after the way Conor responded to him. He was trolling in an attempt to get Conor mad.

    Your just assuming that those things exist. New masking agents, hard to detect steroids ect ect. No fighter will risk getting caught. Simple as that.

    I think you can pretty much say anything as long as gay people, black people, or jewish people don't find it offensive. You can't make light of rape either. Other than that, any thing or any one seems to be fair game.

    The really well off guys are on stuff that they don't even have tests for yet.

    Not that many actually. And there are still many many ways to not get popped.

    Exactly. They can't find something that they don't even know exists.
