I wouldn't call him that never!

That would be like saying Chael won the Championship even though he was completely juiced.

I'd say yes he should be known as such. He defeated the champion in order to become the champion. The fact that he took an illegal advantage to help him do so (which most are doing also they just arent stupid enough to get caught) does not erase the fact that he DID BEAT THE CHAMPION.

Though numerous ***** should be put next to it, he is still a former UFC Champion.

As far as the drug tests go, What I have to say would be considered a conspiracy so I wont say it.

Barnett talked to Jim about it and I talked to Jim, all Im willing to say is there is a lot more going on behind the scenes, I dont have a problem with Barnett because if Jim trusts his explanation I will too, not that I expect anyone here to do the same.

I seem to remember Chael getting the life choked out of him just before he tapped to Silva or are you talking about something even more obscure and unrelated?

Some of those guys were champions and tested positive but Barnett is the only one who tested positive for the fight he won the belt and was immediately stripped of his belt.
