Doubters are trying to be positive but I think that's crazy with the amount of first hand accounts we have now. This statistic would not surprize me at all.

Im with Limba on this one. KS is making claims based upon his own assumptions, he isnt giving any real proof or evidence to support his position. I can say that I think 90 percent of fighters do anything from punching cats to sleeping in trees, it doesnt mean anything without facts or statistics to back it up. Im sure that the use of PED's is pretty wide spread in most pro sports, mma included, but that doesnt mean that some number I pull out of my ass means anything. Maybe he trains at a place where most of the guys use them. Maybe there are some gyms where almost nobody uses. Its impossible to tell how accurate guesses like this are without any actual facts.

I'll say it again, when your career relies on how well you can dominate another man, you're going to go for any kind of advantage you can get unless you're an EXTREMELY moral person or have freakish natural ability. Now obviously there are no statistics to back up KS's words, it is something that needs to be assumed for the most part. He's not a member of this forum, he's a professional fighter who sees these things going on first hand.

Passing a drug test is A LOT easier than you think but of course there is always a small chance of getting caught and there you have the Nate's, Chael's, and Barnett's of MMA.

I remember seeing Big John on Off The Record (panel show on TSN in Canada, for those unfamiliar) and he said something like if you grouped everyone in the sport together, then took away everyone who had used at least something over the course of his career, very few people would be left.

Sad, but true.

Depends. Passing a urin test IS a lot easier than you think, but passing a blood test is nearly impossible (assuming you were on something lately). Unless you have superman's kidneys stuff is going to stay in your system for quite a while.

If you listen to beatdown or junkie you know its true, a lot of other fighters have said the same thing in interviews.

Problem is, most of the testing under the ACs and the UFC's banner is still urine. It's one of the criticisms WADA has leveled at the sport of MMA.

Blood tests are more expensive and take more time so I guess it's understandable.

It would definitely be better if they had blood testing.
