Was just reading over the Tito vs Kevin poll and some believe (myself included) that Kevin has used steroids.

So, what are your thoughts about fights, ufc in particular about steroid use?
Should fighters be tested?
Should fighters be fined, or suspended?


Ill chime in after i see some replies. :)

It would be interesting to see testing but it wont happen, Randoms yes but again so much moneys involved and fighters getting surgerys etc there will always be an excuse.

They should be tested and suspended! Anyone who uses steroids are cheaters and don't deserve to be a fighter!

I know that they were being tested, because Josh Barnett was caught and had his title stripped.

As for now, I think Tim should be tested.

Steriods don't make you big automatically. If you don't lift weights they won't really have any muscle building effects. So maybe Tim doesn't lift that much. Just a thought.

I say test them

Steriods are the lamest way to get big, it takes time and determination. Especially since all these fighters are using Xyience stuff that's supposed to be so goddamned advanced scientifically. :dunno:

Nevada State Athletic Commision?

All steriods are banned as UFC is regulated by NSAC and as such Tim Sylvia has been banned from 1 of his fights and got a temporary suspention testing positive a while ago , and more recently Tiki also got caught using them!!

I know. They allow your muscles to recover faster so you can work out more and get bigger.

Its an unfair advantage, physically and mentally for a fighter. They need to test fighters, fine them, and suspend them. UFC seems to still be in its infant stages, so maybe we will see drug testing being mandatory in the future.

Now imagine they did drug testing in the WWE :laugh:

The WWE only looks for certain problems of addiction when it comes to wrestlers like alcohol, weed, cocane, or painkillers. I know Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon were busted with steroids, and I think Macho Man Randy Savage.

They should test all fighters in the UFC and then suspend them if they are using. Using steroids creates and unfair advantage for some fighters.

bwhahaahahahah thats a goood one :thumbsup:

its probably already beeen answered in this thread , the UFC does test for steroids, infact Tim Sylvia was stripped of his title for using them , Josh Barnett as welll ( after beating Couture ) Kimo also tested positive at UFC 48 Payback vs Ken Shamrock !

Of course steroids should be tested in any sport , but ESPECIALLY in this sport where it is 1 on 1 combat i know i wouldnt want to fight a roid freak...... Like Bas Rutten says "STEROIDS ARE FOR PUSSSIES" BAS BEING STRAIGHT UP AS ALWAYS :thumbsup:

someone said Tim Sylvia doesnt lok like a steroid user, well thats because he doesnt use them anymore, but if you loook back at his fights with GAN Mcgeee and RICCO rODRIGUEZ Sylvia was MUCh biggger much more intimidating loooking back then ... now he loooks kinda lanky and goofy looking :laugh:

WAR BIG TIM!!!!!
