They wouldn't need false positives anyways as there are enough fighters who are stupid enough to get caught with the current joke system. So it won't take long until a big name thinking to be smarter than them gets caught by them.

Yeah, the current testing system employed by the UFC isn't exactly hard to beat.


Roid your tits off until you have sufficient time left to cycle it out of your system. Test clean on fight night, rinse repeat.

Hendricks and his manager is obviously looking for ways to get out of this by now. Im just starting to wonder how long he's been doped up.

A company that test superstars lik Floyd, Manny and countless others are obviously in "cahoots" with GSP to take out Johny Hendricks... lol.

This fight just has a sour taste now.

So Hendricks won't do VADA testing because GSP is in cahoots with them, so Hendricks offered to do it with WADA, GSP turned it down because he wants to know when the tests are coming and now everyone is saying what Hendricks is doing is suspect?

Am I missing something?

Surely GSP not wanting to do WADA because he doesn't know when the tests are coming is more suspect.

It is suspect if true. However, it's worth remembering that this is according to Ehrhardt. We have no idea what questions GSP put forward to WADA.

GSP asking for the times of the tests to be defined is not so dodgy. We have no idea to what extent. Does he want 2 weeks advanced warning or just a day? GSP is a fecking busy bloke, so I can kind of understand is he doesnt want somebody turning up when he's knee deep in some promotional shit. He may just want assurances that the tests will happen during his training hours as opposed to an exact day. Difficult to know without the facts.

Asking questions regards what's tested for, however, is more suspect. But im going to give GSP the benefit of the doubt till we hear more from some neutral people.

All in all, this nonsense is putting a bit of a dampener on the fight.

VADA is testing at random times as well so that's not the point. GSP never said he wouldn't do it either. GSP's lawyer is asking questions on WADA's procedures and Hendricks' camp thinks (for some reason that I don't get) that this is a red flag. To me it looks like Hendricks' camp is being paranoid which makes them look like they have something to hide.

Why? Maybe they just wanna make sure WADA are testing properly and not like the NSAC.

My brain immediately thought it was about what they we're testing GSP for. But you are right. It may be the opposite; GSP wants Hendricks to be tested for specific things.

The truth, im sure, is nothing remotely close to our speculations!

If anyone is still wondering why Hendricks and his camp are making wild allegations which are really excuses so he can stall and back out from taking the proper doping tests that Hendricks said he would take in the first place read the post quoted above over and over again.

I hate speculating on anything. But Hendricks is a huge WW, I wouldn't be surprised if he has been taking that drug that helps him cut water weight. This might also explain his lousy cardio.

I'm just speculating here....

I was under the impression that the UFC didn't regulate their drug testing, the state comissions did.
