How is it a failure of the system? It's pretty simple to accept that pot and beer fall under different categories. Regardless of the effects or user. They have different social acceptances. It is a lot more than politics. Politics is the overal surface of the subject but there is far more depth to it.
The win was taken from him, some one must have cared enough to change it. In fact I've seen reputable members on this forum discredit him for it, as well as other professional MMA fighters. I agree with you Gomi got beat fair and square, I don't think the pot played any factor at all. But he should have just refrained from smoking for a couple of weeks.
And come on man, the strikeforce incident? That was a big slap in the face for everyone involved.
I probably was being sarcastic in the above post. I think you should flame me for it.
