UFC 132 drug tests come back clean

Quote:
All 15 fighters who underwent drug testing at this past weekend's UFC 132 event tested clean for performance-enhancing drugs and recreational/drugs of abuse.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer today e-mailed the drug-testing results to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC 132 took place July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz earned a decision win over former WEC champ Urijah Faber in the evening's main event.

The NSAC tested both of them, as well as Chris Leben, Wanderlei Silva, Tito Ortiz, Ryan Bader, Carlos Condit, Melvin Guillard, Shane Roller, Rafael dos Anjos, Brian Bowles, Aaron Simpson, Anthony Njokuani and Jeff Hougland.

All tested negative for drugs of abuse (such as marijuana and cocaine), as well as anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancers.

The NSAC traditionally tests both main-card fighters, all winning fighters and any competitors who previously failed drug tests. However, some of the testing remains random, and all fighters are subject to it.
To this day I cannot understand why recreational drugs are ILLEGAL to use in sports. If they DO NOT ENHANCE PERFORMANCE, then why on earth are they considered "banned substances"?

I understand that recreational drugs such as those mentioned above are frowned upon by the general public, and sure if all athletes were smoking marijuana and turning up to training/competing baked it wouldn't look good for the sport - I get that. But I HIGHLY doubt a large percentage of athletes would do that, because it will (arguably) decrease your ability to compete.

If anyone could shed some light on this, I'd be grateful. If not, discuss

Cocaine will actually highly increase your performance for a short amount of time. The right dosage raises your alertness, your overall energy level and even your muscle activity.

Why marijuana is on that list, I have no idea.

Politics... Although I can understand why the UFC management might want to know whether someone's fighting all coked up because I don't think that's a good recipe for a long and successful career.

Weed should be prescribed to fighters. If you're looking to move up a weight class it helps so much (or gain muscle). And if you need to relax your body after training or fights it's 100x safer than muscle relaxers etc.

Probably correct but the UFC already has a repuation from people uneducated on the sport as being a "blood sport" so the last thing they need is to he the first professional sport to look the other way with recreational drugs.

Some fighters actually benefit with the usage of cannabis. Nick Diaz claims his jiu jitsu effectiveness is enhanced when he is under the influence. Regardless, this is not why it is banned.

If anything it could be the DEA getting there .02 in to try to further relegate the usage of those recreational drugs.

If that's not the reason, who the hell knows.
