I pretty much agree with Rampage's opinion on marijuana -- but I think he's been listening to Joe Rogan a little bit - lol.

I do agree with eyebrow-Eddie that sterioids (PEDs) runs rampant in the sport - probably a lot more rampant than we think. I think it's the same as baseball, basketball, football, etc. Fans of the sport refuse to believe it's in their sport -- but I'm on the other side of the fence. Maybe I'm just a cynic... I dunno.

You're not a cynic it's just a reality of certain sports. Any sport where strength and power are crucial is full of PEDs, including UFC. The good news is that skill beats PEDs. My eyes tell me that Anderson Silva is natural, and look at the list of the Testosterone Brigade that he's beaten:

Bonnar, Sonnen, Marquardt, Henderson, Irvin, Belfort, Griffin...

I'm even suspicious of a lot of fighters that have never been caught.

I remember seeing this older picture of condit;


and this;


now compared to this;


I'm sure he's training 10x as hard as he used to, but that just doesn't look natural to me :/ Huge difference in the neck and arms, just seems crazy.

I'll probably get a ton of neg rep for this one, but whatever

Whenever I hear Eddie Alvarez and Frankie Edgar talk I just instinctively start fist pumping and pounding that ron ron juice.

funny thing is I disagree with them when they say marijuana isn't a performance enhancing drug. I smoke weed all the time and go to the gym and I can workout way harder and way longer when I'm high by a significant factor, it's easier to regulate your bodies rhythms and ignore the voice that tells you to quit when you are high so you can get more energy out.

It's why guys like Nick Diaz can train for triathlons, so I can definitely understand why it's a restricted drug. Put me in a fitness training contest with someone who doesn't smoke and I already have a huge advantage, it doesn't work like that for everyone but for some people it does and it creates an unfair advantage when it helps the person train. Some would say it wrecks your cardio and slows your mind, which isn't true if you are an active person. Weed tends to make some people lazy, but if it doesn't then it's unfair. Sure it wouldn't be best to smoke up before a fight because it can slow your reaction time, but in training it helps a lot.

He has grown into a man plus he is training at a professional camp. Nobody was born looking like a professional athlete

So then what is the difference between some pre-workout or muscle recovery powder and marijuana? It sounds like your saying they do the exact same things. And I don't see how smoking would give you an advantage in a fitness training contest, if the guy is more fit than you then he's going to beat you whether he smokes or not.
