    Anybody know whether or not the referees or judges are ever subjected to tests for illegal drugs (not PEDs obviously)? I would imagine they are tested when they apply for a license in a specific state not unlike other jobs, but maybe not? Should they be subject to a test the night of a fight just like the fighters?

    Some of the judges should defintely have their mental health evaluated.

    I think most of the judges are drunk during fights

    I doubt they have to meet any standards higher than postal workers. Probably a decent background check and a piss drug test. They're definitely not allowed to conspire to manufacture/distribute drugs, though.

    Most likely just the athletes under contract are subject to strict testing, everybody else working for Zuffa probably gets the yearly random test.....maybe....probably not Buffer though lol.

    Obviously not. They work almost every card and Rosenthal was even a dealer ffs and we've never heard of any of them failing a test.

    OT I remember Copeland reffing a fight in XFC where a chick got kicked right in the cooch and he had no idea what to do. That was a good fight too.

    The refs grow the drugs and the judges smoke the drugs. The circle of life.

    If that was the case mazagatti would have gotten a lifetime ban probably 10 years ago
