Barnett got screwed

Look at how the UFC treated josh when he got caught using steroids. They didn't really do anything to Tim Sylvia. According to UFC sorces tim gave the title up they didn't even strip him. And gan Mcgee never got a rematch who happened to be the fight that got tim caught. Then look at kimo. Nothing was really said. Barnett was ran out of the UFC like he was a witch in the old days. What is up with that? Maybe it's became less of a big deal. Or maybe someone knows something i don't.

the kimo thing I belive was that the steroids he tested positve on was somthing given from the doctor to help heling a knee joint 4 or 6 months befor the fight after a knee sugery (or weeks, dont remember completly). so thats probably why they are going mild on him.

as for tim/barnet there I can't give you any helpful info

I don't know why. I guess because Josh Barnett was so willing to leave and maybe was planning on leaving UFC soon or something and then UFC caught him and fired him. Or maybe he used a massive load or steroids more than Tim Sylvia and Kimo did but Kimo usually looks pretty ripped and like he uses a lot of steroids. Tim Sylvia is just a bit chubby and doesn't at all look like he uses steroids. Barnett is pretty ripped as well. Plus he beat a legend for the title at the time so maybe thats what really got the UFC upset.
