I can't see xanax masking anything other than ones ability to function, think clearly, or remember the night before

Illegal drugs are one thing but prescribed medication ****s you up on a whole other level. One of the few times I took pills, I spit in someones beer while they were watching, hit another guy in the testes with a pool cue, accused a homosexual of looking like my ex gf, and tackled a fat girl into a wall furnace. Didn't remember a thing.

Pills are not to be effed with.

Well you'd think that but it came out a few months ago Tyson Griffin failed a drug test at UFC 123 and that was in 2010.

I'm not sure how the state of Michigan handles their shit compared to Pennsylvania but this isn't the first time this has happened.

Incompetently. Which is why it's a popular spot for fighters like Rory.

So incompetent they are now in the process of being blacklisted by the ABC until they get their shit together.

The UFC wouldn't have had the option to make a failed drug test public. The PSAC would've issued a suspension had they found anything.
This. I've heard this "dont take ludes before a fight man" nonsense before, when nterviewed about the anderson fight.

He probably took it a night or two before the fight, and is subconciously looking for some way to justify his destruction. It must be hard swallowing being on the receiving end of the most one sided beatdown in ufc history.

If he still had any of it in his system though, the psac would have flagged it publicly like it always does. Needless to say he didn't.
