“I just can’t see him consenting to cheating. I don’t think that’s something he would do. I mean, when you’re at that high of a level, people want to see you back, there’s money to be made if he fights again, so somebody had to be in his ear or somebody had to be giving him stuff that he didn’t know what it was. I hope he had no idea what it was.”
“I mean, that’s a guy, you can’t take away what he’s done for the sport for one mistake that maybe he didn’t even make. The casual fans (are doing that), you know? Like, ‘oh, he’s been cheating his whole career.’ They have no idea, watching him in the UFC when it was just his first fight, they don’t know what it takes to get where he’s at. So people are so quick and easy to judge, and nobody knows what’s going on.”
