UFC heavyweight Travis Browne usually doesn’t show much sympathy while he is on the octagon blasting people’s heads off. However, when it comes to the recent news that the Nevada State Athletic Commission could be dishing out year-long bans for fighters who pop positive in their drug tests, he felt the need to speak up.
During a media luncheon, Browne stated, “A year is bad enough, if you want to send a message, I would say a financial message is harder.” He continued, “You still allow the guy to fight, but okay, 30-40 percent, I get it, getting fined 30-40 percent of your purse. But, two years out of the game, you’re not fighting. Think about it. Most of these guys, if you took me out for two years right now, I would be 34 and trying to make a comeback.”
Do you think a year is too long? Did the Nevada State Athletic Commission get the punishment right? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
