Actually, this is all pretty run of the mill when you consider Dana's half-hearted borderline annoyed stance he takes whenever he's asked about drug testing.

And of course, we know the UFC refuses to random test.

I don't deny that BJ asking that the testing be postponed isn't fishy. That could mean, however, that Penn has something to hide. If Rory had made that request, would you be casting dispersions on Penn? No. You'd be attacking the man who made the request.

You have a longstanding dislike of Rory, which makes anything you say about him difficult to take seriously. That and your 'he should have fought in Vegas by now, so he's obviously on steroids' line of thinking is absolutely ridiculous. As I said, GSP fights in Canada almost exclusively. I can't imagine what theories you must have aboot him.

Roflcopter and I have a love-hate relationship. He loves me. I hate him.

You can have whatever kind of relationship you like - just keep it off this board.

Keep this thread civil - first and final warning

Exactly right, which makes me wonder why you singled out MacDonald?

The UFC does have a laughable drug testing policy, any policy that doesn't involve random out of competition testing is virtually useless. But there is no reason to think MacDonald is using more than any other guy. He might be, but I bet I could list dozens of UFC fighters who have never fought in Vegas or California. If I cared enough to look. Which I don't.

And BJ acting weird isn't exactly news either, he has always been a little off kilter, thats not exactly a big red flag for me either.

The UFC had nothing to do with the VADA testing. According to them they didnt even know about it.
Roflcopter said he thought the testing got called off because Dana convinced BJ to get rid of it.

I'm saying BJ always had this stipulation that's against VADA guidelines.

If BJ came up with this request to get rid of VADA testing at the behest of the UFC, why did he bring it up when he first mentioned it? If he wanted to get rid of it, it would have been easier just to never tweet about the VADA offer in the first place and not give it publicity.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
