What other sports intrude on fighters with drug testing like the UFC?

    Excuse my ignorance, but I have read about people getting tested like 15 times, sometimes two days in a row, by people showing up at their doorstep at 6AM. Dragging them out of bed and making them piss and give blood. Now. Like the fucking police. Even if I am clean, this bothers me. It is intrusive and draconian. I wonder how the Diaz bros react to guys banging on their door at 6AM barking fucking orders. lol.

    I am not defending steroids. I am just a paranoid person like Nick Diaz and when people are banging on my door at 6AM I think it is the fuckin police or something. My home is my castle. Do not bother me there.

    Anyway, in what other sports do athletes have to deal with these home invasions? I find it hard to believe other sports are dragging people out of bed or any time they want.

    UFC is not a sport.

    I think we all know what TS means, no need for the pseudo-intellectual claptrap.

    I agree though TS, granted it's not the UFC who is directly knocking on their doors, but i don't think in any other sports do the athletes get stalked by the USADA like they do in the UFC

    It's not a home invasion if you're knocking on the door, being all polite.

    Jesus Christ, you're a pussy.

    It's a home invasion if you're entering right away with a gun and an erect cock.

    I love threads bashing the UFC for trying to clean up the sport. Keep it up, guys. I'm sure with enough angry threads on Sherdog, USADA will be history in no time!

    What I'm basically trying to say is:

    I'm not violent, I'm petrified and nervous
    I got no mercy for these :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:s tryin' to serve us




    Such a fitting song for Diaz too. "Yo AC, is it cool if a :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: just get fucked up for this one?" Talking about getting high for those who don't know.

    no big sport. they're not stupid to do this shit

    but it seems like england's premier league is partners with USADA. maybe that's why they haven't been relevant in a while in the european scene

    but NFL, NBA, MLB, eu footbal and all that don't care about this crap

    Doesn't the NFL, NHL and NBA also use USADA? I honestly don't know.

    No. They each have their own program.

    He means invasion of privacy most likely; nothing wrong with wanting to get a little peace and quiet. It's hard out there for a pimp...

    Check and check; thus, home invasion.

    I think most of the Olympic sports. I had a former classmate who used to be an athlete at Olympic level and he always had to tell those guys (not USADA, but WADA I guess) his whereabouts on this website. They would randomly visit him at all hours, even on a vacation address to take blood/urine. Even checking if he was really the one peeing in the cup. He said it was a shit, but part of the game...

    I can't believe I have been agreeing with a guy with a Gus avatar so much.

    You're absolutely right. It is so fucking stupid. lol.

    I think this was the logic:

    1. MMA is considered cockfighting still by many.
    2. Dana/Zuffa response is short sighted bravado: we'll implement the strictest testing. We are serious.

    What actually happens:

    It ruins cards and makes the UFC actually look like they have the most juicers. lol. These USADA tests are like MCAT or something. The average UFC fighter is at a 3rd grade reading level. They can't pass these fucking things. It is like my high school having higher standards than Harvard. It is absurd. And most leagues are smart enough to realize this.

    Depends on what they're doing in your house.

    If you're a steroid cheat and you don't want them investigating your house, you're a pussy.

    It's the only way to clean up the sport. Fans and fighters along with media have complained and now action has been taken.

    Basically, the sports that dont use WADA or follow WADA guidelines are the North American Sports Leagues

    The rest of the world, from Aussie rules to the Premier League, from Surfing in South America to Kabbadi in India, follow the wada code or wada guidelines
