Dana White On Drug Testing | "Yes, we're going to do our own testing,we're sorting it out now." | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
UFC President Dana White comments to the Los Angeles Times.

White comments on the UFC implementing its own drug testing procedures following the recent situation with Alistair Overeem.

“The steroid, [performance-enhancing drug] thing affects the whole sport. The key is to make sure these guys never get on it, because once they do, they change. The problem with Overeem is that I want to sit in a room with him man to man and believe him. He told me before he ever fought for us, ‘Don’t worry, I’m the most tested athlete in sports.’ But I think we have about 42 fights a year … you have a guy or two popping [positive tests] here and there, that’s a pretty good ratio…. Yes, we’re going to do our own testing, order these guys into [a lab]; we’re sorting it out now. You have to do this to save the sport. You can’t have these guys fighting on this stuff.”

    Overeem gets 9 months for ducking drug test and then test 14 times over the normal range, whilst Diaz gets 12 months for weed. What a joke

    I guess Ben Askren called it like it is and and was right after all….. :)

  3. Big Show says:

    Sonnen got caught for using ilegal TRT to try to beat Anderson, and now those stupid people from the NSAC allow him to use it… is this a joke or what? TRT is another way for dopping even if you are 35… Anderson Silva is older and he doesn´t use these cain of stuff.. in the other hand you have the Nick Diaz case, and it´s a joke what the NSAC are doing, those are the ones who are high, stupid people ruling the fearness of the sports like always

    • He didn’t “get caught”, it was basically a paperwork issue: he never bothered to file it or some shit. He’s on it legitimately (sort of. Obviously he shrank his balls before), which is why he can use it to get back to NORMAL levels.

  5. People are inherently stupid says:

    People talk like TRT or roids turns you into the Hulk. Its a small edge. Usually in recovery. Some of you talk like its the only reason someone has won a fight. Athletes use enhancers all the time. Some get caught, most dont.

  6. STFU Your all bitch ass nigglets!

  7. MeMo818 says:

    People always look for excuses why they lost..or why they won’t fight…Overeem hasn’t lost a fight since 2007…someone at the top of the chain who doesn’t favor him…will look for a way to slow down the REEM!!

  10. truth says:

    It’s funny how first he says that it’s impossible for UFC to test all fighters, but yet they have time to monitor what their fighters are tweeting
