    They need to have a real system in place not something like we will get the results within a few months probably

    It really makes the whole thing seem a little fishy, especially since it was originally rumored there was a failed test for 189 then all went completely silent

    How much does that USADA job pay? How much more can you make off kickbacks from Zuffa?

    I'd imagine its a 65-70k job with travel benefits. Nothing major. The job description doesn't leave me to believe its a heavy public relations job, which would make it closer to a 100k position.

    Melendez failed drug test results were released a month after 188.

    You need a degree and written communication skills. That eliminates 90% of sherdog. The rest don't pass the oral communication retirement.

    Government job. So 30% more than the private sector equivalent, 50% less work.

    So, we haven't heard the Boston card results or the 189 results... Something smells. And it smells like fish.

    But it would put me in a position to affect the outcome of fights right? Like I could alter tests and stir the pot with false positives or by leaking information to the media?

    I wonder if I would have to live in Nevada for this job, cause that'd be a deal breaker.

    I doubt it. Federal regulations might call for a Scientist or Chemical engineer to walk that puppy under brief case and chain. I have no clue about how the fight game works though.
