BJ Penn didnt 'Cancel" the Vada testing.

He just asked for the results to be release POST fight instead of PRE fight. Which is a fair thing to ask SINCE that affects the UFC directly. Imagine VADA sponsors a HUGE main event fight and the results come out a week or 2 before the fight. Now the UFC is out of huge money and stuck replacing a huge fight in a weeks time.

It puts the company in a extremely vulnerable position.

This is what I thought.

But if BJ has actually cancelled the testing then I think you guys are giving Roflcopter an unnecessarily hard time. He has raised some decent points.

(I don't even like Roflcopter and I do like Rory Mac)

No. Even if he did cancel the testing, the reasons for that are unknown. I guess we can throw on a tinfoil hat and claim it was Dana's protecting his asset. But then again most people use actual evidence before making claims like that... not ridiculous conjecture. There is a difference.

I can pull up a fighters location of prior fights and claim he was running away from rainbows because he has a fear of leprechauns. That would make as much sense as copter is.

I didn't even know BJ canceled the testing. I don't believe in coincidence when it comes to people doing or not doing something so if this is true then I think Rofl might be onto something.

Personally, I enjoyed the read. Sure, it's a bit of a stretch, but still. At least rolf put forward a reasonable argument. You guys are being too harsh.

Yeah the reasons are unknown, but why can't he state his opinion without being harassed for it? We have forums so we can speculate and discuss things, and honestly his points aren't that unlikely.

What other reason can you think of that BJ would cancel the VADA testing? He was so adamant about doing it 2 weeks ago.

Well the obvious and most logical reason for a fighter wanting to cancel drug testing is probably because that fighter themself has something to hide. I don't think BJ does sterois... but if this was any other fighter everyone would be screaming that the fighter who asked for it to be cancelled was juicing. That makes a lot more sense than saying Dana begged BJ to cancel the testing to protect Rory without a shred of evidence that even occured

Also, Copter has a serious hate for Rory. Not sure where it came from or what it's about. That's what makes this whole theory that much more hilarious.

If you post something colossally stupid you can expect people to call it what it is. And that OP was a doozy.

The reason for BJ not agreeing to VADAs terms are clear - a conflict of interests. Penn is an employee of the UFC, VADA's release policy could potentially cost the UFC a lot of money. For an employee to spring a potentially harmful act on his employer is a bad idea in any business.

I think the chances are higher that BJ cancelled the VADA testing because the UFC told him to than because he was worried that he himself would get popped for something.

your first paragraph doesn't really hold any points because you are making a point about BJ and you say "if it were anyone other than BJ". (are you trying to say that BJ is afraid of getting caught for something other than PEDs?)

I read the OP without knowing that Roflcopter dislikes Rory and agreed with some of his points. Maybe if you read it from a neutral standpoint then it would be different.

(not trying to come off like an arsehole here, sorry if i do)

They said the test results would be released after the fight, so the testing does not affect the current fight at all. The only thing that could be affected is if the winner pops hot then it could be turned to a No Contest. The PPV buys are all the same, nobody has to pull out of a fight and leave the UFC looking for a short notice replacement.

Don't we want the cheaters to get caught and punished?

Ahhh the all knowing logic of the internet teenager!

Here is an idea let's wait to see if he ever does pop positive instead of crucifying the guy on hearsay, coincidence and gut feelings?
