Dana White | The NBA, NFL & MLB Would Be Toast If They Tested For PED’s As Much As The UFC
“Test them every time they perform. Test them every time they run out onto the field. Randomly test guys every time they run out onto the field. NFL, NBA, Major league baseball, test them. I’d love to see that happen and see, you would have guys getting popped fucking left and right. Let me put it to you this way. We got 375 guys under contract. We are doing a zillion fights a year. Right? We’re traveling all over the world, all these other things were doing. Now, you really think we can crack down and just fucking chase these guys around everywhere they live all over the world and just randomly test these guys all the time? On top of all the other things were doing? You have to really sit back and you have to think and you have to use a little bit of reality and a little bit of, come on. It’s unrealistic for me to chase these fucking guys all over the world and test them for marijuana, cocaine, steroids and this and that. It’s impossible! We do more than any other sports organization on the planet. I want to see fucking baseball and football and all these other guys get tested the way we get tested. There would be no football, baseball or anything else if they got tested the way we get tested.”
In the aftermath of the UFC 146 pre-fight press conference that went down this week UFC president Dana White took to the floor to answer media questions about all items concerning UFC business.
One of the bigger stories coming out this week was the six-UFC heavyweight fighters who got pulled by the NSAC for a random drug screening.
While the testing procedures and frequency leave much to be desired, the UFC boss defends their policies and challenges the fact that they are the best run sports franchise in the world for keeping their athletes honest.
Is it enough?
