    at this point it seems like 50% of champs are testing positive at some point.

    the UFC should bring back the Pride intellectual property and run an ex-USA in Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, South America, Middle East etc without athletic commissions.

    the UFC is the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Make the testing even more extreme so we can watch the best clean fighters in the world fight. a true zero tolerance policy with even more testing as the number of fighters would be vastly decreased.

    obviously fighters could not shuttle back and forth. Pride has a history as a great fight league. Of course this will never happen, but the number of popular name fighters testing positive is ridiculous.

    Newer mma fans would lose their shit if PED testing was removed. They want to believe someone can be a GOAT fighter while fighting 100% clean.

    This.

    If history has shown us 1 thing, it's that it's impossible to be a clean athlete, and be a sporting GOAT.
    Other than Fedor.

    i love fedor but he was not clean. Russians love steroids and always have. they also are one of the few countries with their own large pharmaceutical industry. russians have a lot of drugs the west has never heard of.
