Why would you do it independently? Wouldn't be better to get the athletic commission involved in this process. They are known to reject data from independent sources when fighters are trying to prove they are clean. I think the best case was involving Phil Baroni when he tested positive for steroids. He had a second testing done in a clinic not recommended by the commission and they dismissed the results.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

What a cheater! I don't like people who increase their strength and performance with drugs so they have an unfair advantage. GSP is a wonderful body and look, no drugs!

I think he just set a new record in patronizing fans. How stupid does he think people are?

This is most likely just a way for Reem to test how he can use trt and pass tests at the same time, its just practice for him.

It doesn't matter where he gets tested, the fact that he's determining the schedule invalidates the entire purpose.

Lol, right? The best way to cheat at something is to get familiar with the process.

Just a few points here:
1. Overeem is not suspended, he just doesn't have a licence. Semantics, I know, but its the truth.
2. What does TRT have to do with this at all? He was caught juicing, the only time TRT has ever come up is fans speculating.
3. Testing clean after you have tested dirty does not prove anything. All it says is that a person was caught, and stopped juicing for the time being. Does not prove one to be a clean and moral fighter!
