    As much as I want to see the fight, I'd hate to see that 'excuse' fly. It's a slap in the face of any testing ,etc. They may as well not do any testing from here on out or something.

    ?





    The problem is, the current system with the regional athletic commissions is essentially flawed to begin with.
    Why does the UFC not use WADA or NADA testing, in the first place?

    Two simple reasons:

    1. The UFC and other fighting orgs live very comfortably with the option to license their fighters wherever the conditions to get the license are the best. For example, how come Nick Diaz is seriously fighting this summer, even if only in a BJJ competition? Ah, I see, California law. I'll remember that next time I go to training drunk.

    2. If there was serious testing, how many MMA fighters would not lose their license pretty much instantly? There was ONE case where the athletic commisions did what they had to, and Dana was not amused.




    That's how people with low testosterone look like, REALLY!

    I actually meant nothing against the Dutch (this time). Just that getting a script from a vaguely reputable doctor in a far away home town is an old trick to try and make it less obvious that what they are now calling TRT was in no way on the up and up.

    To be clear, I wasn't ranting against you. I have to confess, last night I couldn't sleep, and so I listened to a couple of MMA podcasts, to sort of catch up with what had happened lately.

    And the truth is, really, the lies and the double standard displayed by the press there is upsetting, at least in the leading US media, like mmafighting, sherdog, and bloodyelbow.

    Like, first, nobody seems to care to explain what TRT really is. So, the listener, what can he really say about T vs ET levels, and so on? Nothing, of course. And so, it's very easy to be fooled. That is, of course, because an honest discussion about the topic would speel *doom* for the entire industry, at least for the current generation of fighters.

    I tried to be as on the level as possible when I wrote about it.

    I'd note that Nate Quarry has also been about as upfront as anybody on his Spike TV program.

    While the body of evidence suggests that marijuana has an effect on (specifically slowing) the perception of time,
    it seems odd that this is rarely mentioned as a possible performance enhancing trait.

    Well that's just fantastic, Overoids gets a pass and everything gets swept under the rug, and why?? Just so Dana fucking White can make a few more bucks to throw in his fireplace. Wow UFC how low can you slither??

    Interesting article. Obviously a biased viewpoint from Mir's manager, but it still offers some insight into the contractual situation.
