    What would you do differently?

    We all know horse meat is a common issue in every major sport today, but when it comes to UFC, how, when, where, etc. Would you do different then already is being done?

    I'd pump them full of drugs, as I was supposedly draining blood

    I'd drug test Yoel Romero multiple times a day, every day

    I would just test for major drugs except marijuana. All anabolic steroids and hgh. Test for diurectics and pct. Estrogen blockers. I would allow supplements from gnc and other stores.

    Every fighter would be blood tested at random twice leading up to a fight, the last blood-test wouldn't happen after the two-week-to-fight mark, but they would be forced to give urine tests once a week at random, even when they don't have a fight scheduled. If they test positive, they're banned for life. That's how I'd do it.

    Start testing everyone equally. For a brief moment Holly Holm was one of the most tested fighters, hmmm, wonder what that was about. Then when that info was released they said it was her being sponsored by a supplement company. I would not be surprised if they are dirty also to some extent.

    Make sure fighter was randomly tested in and out of camp. Take a closer look at the banned substance list and what is considered performance enhancing.

    I'd get rid of it altogether. Waste of money, that.

    I keep thinking to myself clearly a high percentage of fighters are taking something, it doesn't take a genius to know if a lot of people are doing it you have to in order to stay at that level of competition.

    I dont quite understand how the cycles work though in order to properly test them where they currently are lacking.

    I would however fully allow legal supplements such as OTR test boosters, creatine, and supplements that arent imo doing anything wrong and can be bought at any gnc
