Maybe they should anounce who would get the *OFN bonus after the fights, but only pay out, if the test come back clean. So a *OTN-fighter on PED will directly see and feel that he just missed $70k, because he couldn't resist the temptation. That way psychologically it's not like "he doesn't get money", but "he has to pay the money", because the days prior to the test results he theoretically already "had" the money.

And I hope, more fighters publicly challenge their opponents to VADA testing.
