    A report from Terez Owens suggests that Goldberg was removed from the announce table while he seeks rehabilitation for an addiction to drugs, specifically Adderall, a stimulant typically used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.

    The UFC refused to comment, but our sources are telling us the reason behind Goldberg's no show is he's stuck in Rehab for a pill addiction. Our source tells us Goldberg has an addiction to adderall.

    Adderall, really??

    I was suspecting he has been doing Coke for a long time and there's rumors that he's an alcoholic as well

    Hope he gets better. But if I were him I would sue the makers of aderall because he seemed to be paying attention to other fights sometimes while announcing.

    from what I've read, it just makes you really focused on what you are doing.

    The adderall train is a whacked ride. Hope the best for Goldie. Maybe he'll make more sense when he comes back.

    it's a great time.

    but the downfall can be kind of shitty. though with the amount that i assume goldberg was taking, the downfall must feel like hell.

    it's like a combination of focus and euphoria.

    you just have to watch yourself with it.

    If this is true then I wish goldberg luck.
    Pills are a dangerous addiction, one that can completly blur the lines between life and death.
    I hope that he comes back stronger and more intune with the fights. Take as long as he needs inorder to get his life in order. More power to him
