This is an article from MMA WEEKLY - Your #1 Source for Daily MMA News, Interviews, Multimedia, and More

One specific fighter who you might think would be competing on Pride's U.S. debut show is Josh Barnett, but he will not be allowed to fight on the show unless he takes and passes a drug test.

After Barnett won the UFC Heavyweight Title in March 2002, he failed his NSAC post-fight drug test when banned anabolic steroids were found in his system.

The normal procedure for such a situation is that the fighter gets suspended for a certain number months, then they have to take a drug test and pass it, and then their license to fight in Nevada is reinstated when they prove that they're clean. That's the process that Tim Sylvia and Nathan Marquardt went through after they failed drug tests in 2003 and 2005, respectively.

However, that's not what happened in Josh Barnett's case. In Barnett's case, he failed a drug test, got suspended, went to Japan, and never fought in the United States again. He has never been re-issued a license by the NSAC because he has never taken a follow-up NSAC drug test

So shut up dumb shit, I am right about this. There is nothing you can say. You are the one who was speculating

The UFC may have some guys that proved to be shitty after fighting in the UFC, but they all had to have proven records before getting there, not true for Pride, you said it yourself with you "side show" explanation.
How do you know they still juice when they go to Pride?

By side show I mean fighters who aren't MMA fighters like Tyson, Butterbean, and Akebono.

look, pride is sending half of thier fighters on a show in holland next month, if josh still took roids, dont u think pride would put him on that card rather than the USA card. Josh isnt stupid, he knows he's getting tested.

Thats my point, Pride doesnt care, so anybody could be on roids over there.

Tyson has not done anything yet.
ButterBean fights MMA guys, so he is an MMA fighter.
And dont know about the other guy
