Admit you’re guilty or never fight for the UFC again

I’m a total sucker for a good steroid excuse so maybe I’m the wrong person to ask, but I thought King Mo Lawal’s excuse was pretty decent. Not only did he find the specific over the counter supplement he was taking that caused the positive test, but he’s also taking the commission punishment on the chin without complaint. Well, his manager has suggested they may go after the supplement company, but that’s a whole other ball of wax.

That may not be good enough to get back into the good graces of UFC prez Dana White, though. We’re not the only ones who have noticed that everyone who pops for steroids denies knowingly taking steroids. It’s enough to make you start thinking that drug testing is a farce, so…

“If you get caught doing something, admit you did it,” White told ESPN.com. “This whole, ‘somebody put something in my system that I didn’t know about.’ … Who here lets somebody put s— in them that you don’t know about?

“I don’t buy that s—. Own up to what you did. Everybody makes mistakes.”

White went on to say that Lawal or any fighter who tests positive for a performance-enhancing drug and fails to admit the error of his ways risks never again fighting in a Zuffa-promoted event.

So what does the future hold for Lawal or former Strikeforce women’s featherweight titleholder Cristaine Santos, who also recently tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug earlier this month?

“I don’t know,” White said. “It depends on how they handle themselves. We will see.”

This all seems to be part of the UFC’s recent plan to appear tough on steroids before a major scandal hits the fan. This is the silver lining in having a troll like the Culinary Union hanging around waiting for something to go awry – it keeps the UFC on their toes and proactively moving forward ahead of potentially damaging stories.

It is kinda creepy though how accused athletes must bow down, kiss the ring, and confess their sins if they want to continue their career in the UFC. Especially if you believe like I do that the real cheats are so far ahead of commission testing that it’s only the innocents slipping up and accidentally injesting bodybuilder crap that are getting caught.

    Prediction for 2012: All UFC fighters mysteriously drop down 1 weight class. Overeem & Carwin drop down to 185. Couture’s body clock catches up & celebrates 80th birthday this year.

    Is this why Sherk never made a comeback?

    So I’ve heard this a few times, this line about “the real cheats are so far ahead of commission testing” etc etc. Is this coming from some personal knowledge or experience that you have or have had, or from someone you know who has told you, or is it coming straight outta your ass, or what? I know next to nothing about steroids, and I need some scientific fact.

    I do know that Chael’s bacne is most certainly caused by roiding. And that “horsemeat” is code for huge amounts of roids. And that if Barnett was roiding he was doing it wrong, cause he doesn’t look at all like that shaven headed meatwad in those force factor ads on the side of the page.

    Okay, Edgar has heart, but to say he has a chin when Maynard, Maynard of all people, dazed him TWICE and came close TWICE to knnokicg Edgar out~I don’t think Edgar has a chin, he has HEART though. That’s what got him through round 1 of each of those fights. Maynard was stupid, very stupid, TWICE, when he tried going for the KO twice instead of using his wrestling after rocking Edgar.Edgar has heart and speed. He knocked out a tired Maynard, but Edgar doesn’t have true KO power. His speed frustrated Sherk and also BJ.Bendo is tough, has great stand up, great ground, good speed, and is a smart fighter. If he rocks Edgar, he won’t err like Maynard did twice. He will finish Edgar quick. Bendo has great Cardio, but does tire towards the end of the 4th round, his only weakness. I got Bendo by submission. Should be a GREAT fight.
