    Fighters are better off taking steroids than heroin and barbiturates

    Dana should take a page off their contract. Pun intended.

    For comedic reasons, I think fighters should be required to fight on heroin.

    This was during the golden age of MMA. Freedom days. Better rules and judging.

    Would be nice if we were able to see Mirko’s contract with pride.I remember reading from a few sources he was getting anywhere from 250 to 350k per fight, plus whatever sponsors he had. Pretty sure he quoted this himself. And that was way back when huge crazy purses were unheard of. He was one of the few fighters from the early days who made serious bank.

    GOAT organization.

    Also Enson is one of the toughest motherfuckers alive.

    I remember seeing an interview with Don Frye a long time ago, and he said Pride would pay him in straight cash that he would take home to America in a suitcase.

    That's kind of stating the obvious. Heroin or anything from H-plant slows down the respiratory system.

    I didnt read o.p click so I dont know in what reference you meant so sorry if you meant in different way.

    Back then it was a level playing field. Now the UFC picks and chooses who they let roid.

    Enson is The Man, love that guy. Talk about Pride never die, well Enson literally takes that mantra to heart, he lives it.

    I'm sure this was a throw back to Japan's laws and back then(maybe now?) steroids were not illegal.
    Though it reads pretty suss, like any roid monkeys can be juiced to the gills... Smashing machine anyone.

    Yup, but in reality the landscape was pretty similar to the U.S. in terms of amount of fighters using steroids

    Dana should bring out a big ass check after each fight from now on..

    $50k bonus each time a fighter knocks out the other guy.

    LOL yep, all of them. Back in the day 03—05 it was HGH head Chuck and Tito with Wand being the chemists roid monkey.

    Now we have similar examples to back then with people crying you have no proof(same as back thenl. Ie brock when he first appeared. For Pride Bushido look at Kawajiri and ask yourself does he look like a Japanese martial artist who's clean.

    Any way back to your point, you're 100% correct.
