It's disgusting, but the UFC is pretty clearly protecting Rory MacDonald - Page 4 - MMA Forum - UFC Forums - UFC Results - MMA Videos
UFC The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books. UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.

So, in conclusion, Roflcopter's theory is silly, but there's no need to be mean about it. I give you this as a gesture of good will:



I just needed the excuse, really.

Even though I am not a Rory fan I do not think he is being protected by the UFC in that way. I think that the kid has genuinely filled out and whilst he may have had a favourable match up here or there (I mean I respect Che Mills but really did that fight make any senese?) there is no way he is protected what so ever.

Interesting...very interesting. Not gonna say whether the OP is right or wrong cuz it's something I never really bothered to look into. But there are some coincidences. Maybe more conspiratorial than anything, but who knows...

Then again everybody who's on PEDs/TRT has gotten popped including mega super star Overeem, Chael, Thiago Silva, Marquardt, I mean what's new. Gotta admit though Rory is like a man child. He's got retard strength. For now I'll say genetics and hard work til proven otherwise.

I just found out a buddy who's injecting HGH and it didn't surprise me. Cuz he's JACKED UP. In the end of the day they're going to suffer cuz humans aren't meant to take in that synthetic shit into their system. It screws with them mentally and their physical anatomy. Besides they'll get screened sooner or later.

It puts the company in a extremely vulnerable position.
This demand is so absurd that it all but guarantees that VADA will not be doing the testing.

Secondly, anyone who is on steroids does not deserve to fight in the UFC, and I have no idea why BJ would want to fight, and possibly lose to a juicer.

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.
BJ hasn't exactly had a hand in hand relationship with Dana and the UFC.

Ever read his book?

It seems awfully strange that all of sudden he's so concerned about cancelling a big fight...honestly...if both guys are clean it shouldn't even be a concern.

And guess where they ALL got caught? Vegas and California, two places Rory has never fought despite being the biggest MMA hotbeds in the world.

This kind of makes sense. Don't listen to the flamers here lol, you might be onto something. The dude is huge, and a lot of people think he uses. It would only make sense that the UFC would protect him, sense they do a lot of other things similar to this situation (Giving Cody to Mendes, and other mismatches to make the fighters look great for future title shots).

The other day, I was thinking about where the UFC would be heading to in 15 years. With Dana White, Fertitta Bros, and Joe Silva gone... Who would be more appealing to take their place? The same with the fighters as well, they need guys who will be big draws in around 10 years or so, so it stays popular, and it stays active. Expect this a lot in years to come.

There's a difference between giving someone a favourable fight and protecting him from steroid testing, etc. You honestly expect me to believe that Dana and company are protecting Rory Macdonald, and yet they sat idly by and allowed Overeem, a huge acquisition and potential cash cow, to be thrown to the wolves? Give me a break. I like a good theory as much as the next guy, but this is purely a case of one's having too much time on his hands.

Alistair beat the test the first time in Vegas. Why wouldn't they continue to book him there? It's there biggest venue. It looks absolutely absurd when fighters AREN'T book there for high profile fights.

The only reason he didn't beat the test the second time is because they did a random and the UFC didn't know about it.

Secondly, it's much harder to hide guys like Overeem as he doesn't have a Canada to go to, to take all of his big fights.

Let's not forget how the UFC deliberately hid Chael from California and Vegas up until this last Silva fight.

They are complete hypocrites.
