    If out of competition drugs tests don't get you punished when you test positive, why do they even bother doing out of competition drugs tests?

    Cause it doesn't enhance your performance.

    I don't think by the AC. I don't even think the UFC has done anything either. Most examples people are going to spit out are from post-fight tests

    Marijuana is considered a PED.

    No. Those were post-fight tests.

    Ridiculous. The only things marijuana is a PED for are Halo and playing guitar.

    Sarcasm?

    Cuz in a sport where speed and endurance are king its a bit of a wonder drug. Only thing worse/better/stronger would be adderall or the like. In a fight or in the gym it will make you literally run faster and jump higher.

    So if the commission only suspends people for steroids in out of competition drugs tests, why did they bother even testing for cocaine?

    Don't they do the testing themselves? How do you accidentally test for cocaine?

    So if out of competition testing doesn't really matter that much how come wanderlia silva ran out the back door when they wanted to test him and then he got banned for life for it? He was taking diuretics at the time which would not be performance enhancing out of competition, only during the final pre fight weight cut.

    the test wasn't supposed to screen for cocaine because it is not a PED. the whole scandal should have been a non-event--the NSAC shouldn't have allowed the information out at all.

    I disagree, the public should know if a UFC champion is a coke head.
