Oh Steroids AND TRT my bad then that's definitely more than 75%

Seriously, just toss in the, what, 3 or 4 current UFC fighters that have been busted for steroids and that's still like 4% of the roster when combined with TRT users. If you want to also count guys that were historically in the UFC like Barnett, Sylvia etc., then the percentage is even lower, counting the total as ALL UFC fighters in history. 75% it is not. Unsubstantiated opinion, maybe.

If I'm to understand you correctly, all you've really said is that Chael is capable of both good and bad. My, God... someone alert the media. Mankind is capable of good AND bad deeds! We've uncovered the secrets of humanity!
Oh wow all humans are capable of good and bad, what a concept!

With such genius, here's another difficult concept ... different humans also do different DEGREES of good and bad, and it's ok, even wise, to recognize that.

I'm sure Hitler had some good qualities too .. good orator, organizer etc. Clearly Diana had some bad qualities (extramarital affairs etc. due to loveless marriage). So are Hitler and Diana the same?? Or was Hitler a bit of a douche, you know, gassing a few million jews here and there, and maybe Diana's flaws are smaller and maybe her whole landmines charity crusade was a teeny bit nicer than gassing the jews.

Chael is OKAY. Not good. He's a douche. A small one, but a douche. Cain is a good guy. Aldo is a nice guy. GSP is a pretty nice guy. Chael, not really. I'm sure Cain and Aldo aren't perfect either, but OVERALL, they're definitely less douchy and more respectable fighters and people. I don't hate chael, but I'm not a fan and never will be as long as he stays the guy he is now.

Beating a man so badly he loses all feeling in his face is just fine, but a corny, off-the-cuff remark about a man's wife is where we draw the line. Got it.
Or a douche. Aside from his PPV with the greatest fighter in all of history, his PPVs are ... meh. And many others have gotten good or even better (Brock) ppvs without sinking to his level.

Yes, it's ok to beat a man till he loses feeling, IF HE SIGNED A CONTRACT FOR THAT IN A SPORT, with a referee for safety. It's called free will. If you do it to some random guy on the streets without provocation, you get tossed in jail.

Anderson's wife didn't sign up for insults though, and neither did every brazilian.
