    Why do you list your combat sports resume as if it has any bearing on your ability as a journalist?

    Did you have any pro fights?

    Do you think people who have been hit in the head a lot would be reasonably calculated to be better or worse writers than people who have not?

    Which, if any, Pulitzer Prize winning authors of the past have a history in combat sports?

    Why does this post talk about you a lot but not talk about combat sports or the different material you've covered, other than a data dump at the end?

    How do I get the mods to allow me to pimp my side hustles on Sherdog?

    There, I'm giving you your desired free advertising.

    Why do you think Jeff Novitzky and Dana White commented that the amount of metabolite of tbol found in Jon Jones's piss is 'a very, very small amount' and 'doesn't affect his performance' when it was pretty much the same amount found in a failed test in 2017?

    Why do you think WADA states the turinabol metabolite detection window is up to several months. yet USADA (and the UFC) claim they can detect it after more than a year?

    If your avatar is an example of one of your ''side hustles'' the mods have very good reason not to allow it..

    As much as we appreciate the questions, this is an article series specifically based on discussion and interaction with the forum itself. The Trenches was also created as an avenue between the main page and the forum.

    What the most dangerous weapon in MMA today? Do you see it working on nearly every fighter if all fighters in the UFC weighed the same?

    Is this the biggest scandal in MMA history?

    Never thought I'd say that so soon after the Khabib-Conor debacle

    Our poll question of the week is up, so feel free to vote and also jump in on the conversation. If you ask a combat sports question, it may make it on the broadcast tonight.

    Read thread title a little too quick and thought it said turinabol instead of trenches poll.

    Jones of course is the first at fault, because if he didn't keep testing positive, we'd have nothing to even discuss regarding this issue. UFC are his co-enablers though, and they have 100% shafted both the fighters and the fans to skirt around Jons dirty tests.

    Jon Jones should've been banned for life from this "sport" two years ago. The UFC deserves this humiliation.

    NSAC is responsible for the “debacle”, UFC and CSAC are trying to fix it. Not fair to lump the two commissions together in the poll.

    Hello Ant i appreciate you answering our questions
    First of all what do you think about Tyron Woodley constantly declining to fight Colby Covington ?
    Do you think Dana alongside Jon and his team should refund fans in some way ?
