Is it possible for a fighter to use PEDs without their coaches knowing?

    I'm kind of wondering how much this implicates the Greg Jackson camp, and other fighters on that team?

    Yes why not it depends on the relationship of a fighter to his trainer and how much he trusts him and does want to disclose such things.
    Why shouldn't it be possible? i can also imagine that some trainers don't WANT to know

    Uh, of course, if fighter doesn't tell etc. then how the hell should coach know?

    You'd think the 'performance enhancing' part would tip them off, but I don't know.

    I think they take that as a sign that they're doing their job well.

    I imagine most gyms operate an "ask no questions..." policy.

    You might be right.

    And it makes sense in both directions.

    You realize cocaine isn't a PED, right?

    And that you don't do coke at the gym, right?
