Dana White: UFC Will Be Drug ‘Testing The Whole Card Now’
“As far as testing, what we used to do is we used to roll into town and the title fight always got tested, and there was random testing. We’re testing the whole card now. The whole card is getting tested. Everyone is getting tested.”
“Obviously, doing away with performance-enhancing drugs not only helps us run our business, but it also helps the fighters. If you can make sure you take a hard enough stance and you can keep these young, talented kids off these drugs, their careers are going to last longer. Once all the kids realize there is a level playing field, you have these guys paranoid, ‘I know this guy is using, I know he is, I have to fight this guy and he’s on it, so maybe I should do it too’ once we can eliminate all that it’s going to make the sport a lot better for everybody, them and us.”
The UFC’s stance on PED’s just got a bit more stringent.
During today’s Media luncheon in Los Angeles, Dana White, the UFC President, spilled the beans about the promotion’s new drug testing policy.
Longtime overdue or what?
