The UFC will drug test all it’s new fighters from now on

King Mo testing positive for steroids makes him the second Strikeforce champ to pop positive in 2012 (remember, he held the belt for 10 seconds). The UFC is currently under siege by bad publicity from evil mainstream media and their mortal enemies in the culinary union, so rather than follow the potential scandal they’ve decided to get out in front of it:

Continuing a commitment to the health and safety of its athletes, the Ultimate Fighting Championship® announced today that all potential UFC® and STRIKEFORCE® signees will be subject to a mandatory pre-contract screening for performance-enhancing drugs. Beginning Jan. 1, 2012, all incoming athletes will be tested prior to finalizing a contract with the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization.

UFC and STRIKEFORCE already work closely with the most prestigious regulators and athletic commissions to ensure the healthy and safety of athletes prior to competition. This includes contestants on The Ultimate Fighter®, all of whom are pre-screened for performance-enhancing drugs prior to participating on the longest-running sports reality show on television.

All current UFC and STRIKEFORCE athletes will continue to be screened for performance-enhancing drugs, both prior to competition and at random, in accordance with athletic commission rules and regulations.

The big question here is what kind of screening? The standard urine testing that goes on across the sport is pretty much useless for catching steroid cheats. If that’s what the UFC is doing this really is just all for show.

    I’m so glad the UFC is finally rooting out PED abuse by adding one more test with plenty of forewarning at a pre-determined time.

    How’d Mo get caught? Something is working or Mo is just dumb. Probably both.

  • agentsmith

    Everyone keeps saying piss-testing is pretty much useless, yet it keeps catching dudes.  And trannies.  So do they just suck at cheating?

  • Blackula Jonez

    If Strikeforce keeps this up ( losing main card/notable fighters) at the rate of one fighter per card.

    By 2013, SF could be left with either nobodies or washed up talent.

    Bottom line the more popular fighters SF loses the less reason for it to stick around, much less promote.

    Also nice pic of Barnett up there remember when he was irrelevant and on the fringes of the sport during his suspension and now is 2 fights away from being a top 10 heavyweight again.

    This sure is one crazy sport.

  • CAP

    Maybe he popped positive just from sitting next to Barnett.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    He’s claiming he had a non-anabolic steroid injection in his knee, but that’s it.

  • Blackula Jonez

    Was it the knee that he spent most of 2011 recovering from surgery.

    If he reported it than it shouldn’t be a problem…right?
