Question by Gemini Twins 69: How is ufc and mma legal sports in the usa if they allow people to do drugs ?
UFC and MMA allow people to do steroids they don’t even do drug tests how is it legal?
FYI they aren’t even blood tested and they can spread their diseases in the ring.
NO they are not tested because they let brock lesnar fight and he’s does steroids. UFC and MMA is disgraceful and anyone who defends it.
Answer by Common
Your question is so inaccurate its not even funny. ALL UFC fighters are randomly tested year round, and almost every fighter in a particular show is drug tested. MMA has the lowest rate of positive drug tests of any professional sports.
Likewise, your claim that they aren’t blood tested is laughable. The fighters (UFC anyway) are required to get routine workups from their doctors prior to their fights. The required tests include blood, neural, and nervous system tests. More than one fighter has been pulled from a card because of a problem that cropped up at their physical (for instance, Thiago Alves was recently pulled from a card when his doctor detected a neural abnormality that he was unaware of. He had surgery and was back in the gym 3 weeks later). Any fighter found to have a transmissible blood borne illness cannot receive a license to fight in any state in the U.S.
In fact, according to the Journal of Sports Medicine and Science: “MMA fighters are given more care and precaution than athletes in any other sports organization in the world. With supervised fights, pre and post?fight MRIs, four ringside doctors and two ambulances in case of emergency at each event and mandatory steroid testing – these organizations reach the highest levels of safety and quality in all aspects of the sport. Safer than boxing, no organization fighter has ever suffered a serious injury or death.”
Next time, do a bit of reading before you start making such uneducated statements.
Edit: Oh really? You got a cite to support that or are you just pulling more crap out of your @ss? Brock Lesnar is one of the most heavily tested professional athletes of all time. Never once – not even back in his high school and college days – has he ever tested positive for steroids or any other illegal drug. I DARE YOU to prove otherwise.
