McGregor: ‘PEDs are part of Brazil’s Culture’

“It seems to me like maybe it’s Brazilian culture. The women are on it. The men are on it. I don’t know what to think. So I don’t really have to think. It’s in Vegas. We are in a new age. The sport is being cleaned. The athletes who are dedicated to martial arts and dedicated to health and fitness and purity, they are the athletes who are being rewarded now. I am happy to be part of the new age.”

“It’s brilliant, it’s great for the sport. When all the things came out with Anderson Silva being on the juice, and the other people that got caught, it was not a good time, or a good thing for the sport. Then, when they had the press conference, I called Lorenzo and told him, ‘this should be a celebration. We are changing the game, we are turning the tide.’ Now we are dedicated to the fight against this, purity of martial arts and pure combat. It’s a new age and it should be celebrated. So, I am happy to be a part of that new age.”

During a recent media scrum in Los Angeles, Conor McGregor threw Brazil under the bus, and believes the use of Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) are part of the South American Country’s culture.
