    Why should I or anyone take suggestions for drug test failure punishment from a heroin addict?

    Brown is overrated and a big mouth. UFC hasn't cut him because he is a just bleeder. Otherwise he'd be expendable. I don't care about a former druggie's opinion on banned substances either lol.

    Agreed. Cheaters should be banned completely otherwise there is always incentive to juice. Lifetime ban means no one will risk it.

    Idiotic statement. The way these tests are someone can fail for something taken off the shelf in Walmart and he thinks you should get banned for life? Ok then

    That would be unfair. Because failing a drug test does not necessarily mean that you were using PED's. Imagine if BJ Penn was banned forever for using IV's.

    edit: Would be funny now if he popped for something. I wonder what he'd say then.

    yeah, they would actually clean up the sport, it would have no one left to fight no more

    Yes, that would hold up when this idea gets taken to court.

    :-/ Then that would be the case now since everyone would be suspended for 6 month to 2 years, right?

    Comparing Jaywalking to PEDS is asinine.

    It is about draconian punishments. Derp. Both are draconian.

    A lifetime ban for a first offense is also asinine.
