So this would only test for illegal substances right? Anything they have a medication for would not count against them since it is so far away from fighting? I am mostly concerned about some guy getting popped for something stupid like a ex-lax because they are having bm problems.

If so, excellent move by the commission and a great way to show they are taking random drug testing seriously.

I didn't realize the event was two months away. I thought it was next week.

Now I get the feeling someone's going to get caught.

I wish they would do this with guys like Hendo, Chael, and who ever else is on TRT....after reading that article oldfan posted a month or so ago about TRT and how you can cycle the levels down around testing time..It made me upset....

Yeah. Let me know when that happens and I'll agree.

Meanwhile I'll lol at the guy who is obviously arrogantly wrong.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I have a feeling this was made up to catch the Reem (was he even at the press?).

Anyway, Dana must be pissed.
Has this thing ever happened in box?

Knowing what time frame the "random" testing will take place kind of defeats the whole purpose a bit.
