    Another reason I believe that if the UFC wants to push USADA on fighters they need to provide a lists of USADA guaranteed supplements. Specific supplements by brands that are tested for quality control by USADA/or similar organization and guaranteed clean.

    The "I didn't know what I was taking" excuse shouldn't be acceptable.

    Wonder if the UFC wanted into the supplement business. Use our stuff and we'll fight that your clean

    My hope would be that he stays clean and out of trouble, because I want someone to come along and beat the very best version of him he could be.

    According to Officer Lou, if you don't ignore (read: exculpate) that Jones is a cheating scum fuck then you are a hater.

    Matt Hammill's the real hero in all of this, lol. Ripped that undefeated shit straight out of the history books before this goof had even fully made it.

    He took those elbows like a champ. He earned that victory.

    Literally and factually did, lol. Blessed the world and history as the real and only world light heavyweight champ.

    Until very, very recently, the NCAA had an absolute zero tolerance for tainted supplements. Their stated expectations indicated athletes could achieve peak performance with a healthy diet, regimented work outs and enough rest. If an athlete tested hot because of a supplement, their response was simply "we don't feel supplements are necessary, and use of a tainted product does not impact our sanctions."

    It wouldn't surprise me if the UFC got interested in the supplement market, but that's really the simplest approach for ACs and USADA to take:

    "You tested hot. This is a second offense, you get 4 years."
    "But I can prove it was a tainted supplement."
    "OK, you get 48 months."

    I honestly wouldn't even waste the time on an investigation that includes tainted product, or dick pills, or whatever. And I absolutely wouldn't give any "pulsing" nonsense the time of day. I'd simply state, you fail a test, for whatever reason, you are suspended X amount of time. And then stick to it. It's not hard to do.
