If Aldo, or any fighter, fought abroad would they be able to rehydrate via IV?
all rules are the same everywhere.
The UFC usually enforce the rules when they are abroad.
"To rehydrate" haha
That's #2 on the list of why IVs are awesome.
I do not like the IV ban. It will lead to more boring fights and an increase in injury. Plus head injuries are more common when you are dehydrated. I know blood doping is a problem but can they not just test for that? How many fighters will have to change weight class?
No one makes them cut so much, they can simply start dropping weight sooner, so they don't have to cut so much
The test for it is the IV thing they test for.
Are they supposed to test for blood in your body....?
edit: wrong thread.
IV ban sucks still.
I thought the governing body set the rules in their state? Do you know more about that? Because the rules aren't the same in Japan, right?
I would think it would be risky to buy IV equipment outside your home country. As far as Aldo, dont sweat it, he wont be fighting in Brasil again, atleast not in the UFC.
Those are the new UFC rules. The USADA has to enforce athletic commission rules AND rules of UFC as well.
Technically that is true but the idea behind athletic commissions is cooperation in upholding a set of unified rules. Basically the rule will be adopted by all states because the states will be required to enforce bans fighters have received in Nevada for using IV's. They could ignore the rule but unless that state is in serious competition with vegas for hosting fights it's unlikely that not enforcing the rule would have any benefit and would probably only draw criticism of the legitimacy of competitions that took place in that state and that is the last thing an athletic commission wants.
