    Why are fighters able to fight after they have failed drug tests for PEDs? Anderson Silva for example, is about to fight as if nothing ever happened and people will be cheering for him like any other fight.

    His career means nothing at this point, he's a cheater and should never be allowed to fight again.

    He wasn't allowed to fight for a certain amount of time. That was his penalty. What's wrong with that?

    Also, why did you mysteriously lose so much weight?

    Because it's not really cheating. Two men enter the cage...one man gets his ass whooped. The end. How one prepared himself to be the ass whooper is kind of irrelevant.

    because its high profile names that sell cards, and fan recognition counts for more than moral indignance.

    I actually agree with you, as far as I'm concerned, until he does it all again clean. Everything in his career up until now means nothing.

    That's my problem, these soft penalties. They need to come down A LOT harder on cheaters. He cheated the fans and was worshiped as the GOAT.
    Then we all find out he's a fake. It's like letting Lance Armstrong race again.

    LeBron has never been accused of PEDs bro. He's been a beast since he was 18. It's all genetics.

    Also, he lost weight because of his back problems.

    Mixed martial artists don't earn enough to buy the expensive non-traceable drugs

    Anderson snapped his leg in half, he should've been on steroids.

    Steroids dont make you move the way anderson did the man is one of a kind. TS is a stupid idiot most fighters use some kind of performance enhancing drug at some time.

    Our society is way too forgiving of cheaters in general. It's a joke, we try to peddle this sportsman horse shit to our kids and make the exact opposite their idols. we favor winning over winning the right way. It's not just sports.

    I give him the benefit of the doubt seeing as he's never tested positive before and he was coming off a career-ending injury.
