I think that most certainly there is some manipulation,the obvious being the Brock Lesnar case.
So then that makes USADA not a legit testing business either because they SHOULD not agree to ANY type of cover up,let us run the testing how we need and no interference.Then comes the part that matters >>>$$$$.The UFC fits the bill,the UFC does not want headliner cards ruined,why we also hear the often failed test AFTER the show even though likely known days,weeks in advance.
The this so called legality issue,give the fighters their fair chance to prove not guilty,Well if your samples prove guilty,i am sorry but you are guilty of being doped with illegal chemicals in your body,it doesn't matter how they got there,they are there.
Simple really,levy very large fines to offset costs,never mind these bs holiday's.
Then you have to think about the entire process and how much money is spent by the big schools/teams/trainers to learn how to cheat the testing.How much warning does a fighter get,what if they arrive and the fighter is not there,is he a big name on the card or a meaningless name,i believe it all matters and nothing is 100% legit.
I believed then and still believe that the ONLY reason USADA was brought on board was to convince some places that were banning MMA to come on board ,NY being a biggie and to give them hope of getting MMA into the Olympics because that would really give the sport huge credibility.
Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.
