    The part that bugs me is that these guys are taken out of action for so long. Most of these guys are not getting rich doing this and now their ability to make a living is being further crippled with all the time they can't fight. And you also are not allowed to be around guys that have been busted which means many of your training partners and cornermen can't help you get ready for a fight.

    I don't like cheating, and I understand that we can't let guys dope endlessly without regrettable consequences, but I think there needs to be some middle ground or a softer approach.

    because jones is a fucking mess. he can't stop fucking up. it hampered the use to some extent? yes, but you just increased the gap between the rich/connected fighters and the fighters that are poor. you see romero, costa and others who really indicate PED usage even in the USADA era. while others that can't afford, they seem to be flabby as fuck

    high level sports = PEDs. that is just a fact. just let them roid

    One year for the first failed test. Sounds pretty soft to me.

    The simplest way not be crippled and lose earnings is not to cheat, take PEDs and avoid sketchy supplements.

    Eh I don't agree with "it's not perfect so let's just give up" they've made amazing progress already.

    USADA isn’t catching nearly enough. If anything they need to go deeper.

    This also drives me nuts. Hurr durr this is the face of yousarda.
    I remember when he first came on the scene and he was doing a Q&A and he had to convince people that he wasnt there to catch dirty fighters. Cant remember what it was on though.

    Stopped reading when you criticized them for giving a multiple time PED abuser a stiff sentence

    I think they are generally doing a good job, but they do need to make sure guys who are further afield are getting similar amounts of testing than the more local guys.

    but its documented it was a contaminated supp, this is not debatable - they are banning people for getting trace contaminants in shit like creatine, it's stupid and not what this is supposed to address, they're simply ruining careers

    Barboza, DC, cerrone and costa have sure been popular with USADA testers. Yoels been tested 10 times? Thought it was 8.

    I hope the Rashad Evans one is a misprint. 11 times!?!?

    Fighters and for that matter people should be more honest. Stop cheating... a wise man once said "get honest or get nowhere". That man was me!

    Lol at testing retired fighters.
    Even Julianna Pena was tested, she spent most of this year pregnant... Can’t remember exactly but when a woman is pregnant, they have to take certain medications, like vaccines or something (remember my wife took vaccines and some meds) leave the pregnant women alone! Lol
