Default Re: B.J. Penn offers to pay for UFC 152 testing if VADA willing to hold results until

LOS ANGELES UFC president Dana White said he won't stand in the way of B.J. Penn and Rory MacDonald's enrollment with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

Despite the fact that a positive pre-event drug test could cast a cloud over their fight at UFC 152, White said the decision was "their business."

"B.J. wants to go drug test every friggin' two days, good for him," White on Thursday told MMAjunkie.com ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]). "Knock yourself out."

UFC 152 takes place Sept. 22 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto and is headlined by the UFC's first flyweight title fight between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson. MacDonald (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Penn (16-8-2 MMA, 12-7-2 UFC) meet on the evening's pay-per-view main card.

After some uncertainty whether the fighters would sign on, Penn and MacDonald finalized agreements to undergo eight weeks of random, Olympic-style drug testing at the expense of the Las Vegas-based organization, which is headed by former Nevada State Athletic Commission chief ringside physician Margaret Goodman.

White cast more than a sideways glance at the necessity of such a move.

"It's just stupid," he said. "You've got guys like B.J. and (Roy) 'Big Country' (Nelson), and guys like that that are always out there talking smack. The Nevada State Athletic Commission does the drug testing.

"VADA, WADA, badda, nada. Whatever. Nevada does it, or California, or wherever we are."

no point in testing if the results are only released after the fight.

A complete idiot. Its laughable that he seems to think the UFC has the most stringent drug testing in the world of sports.

I did get a little chuckle after 5 minutes of the ''Most tested sport in the blah blah'' spiel

''What about random testing''

''Im too busy''

Most people don't like the TRT that's going on now but if it wasn't for it guys like Hendo and Sonnen wouldn't have been fighting for titles and in main events. It's a catch 22 for Dana. And not to mention Overroid was lucky he didn't get caught for the Lesnar fight becasue we could all assume he was on "stuff" for that fight also.

There is no catch 22. If you want to be a clean sport then you dont allow TRT just because a fighter is geting old or because they have abused there body so much with PED's.

Getting old is not a valid excuse for TRT. A consequence of getting old is you more that likely cant do things which a a guy 10 years younger can do. Thats just life so deal with it. The idea that its somehow fair to get TRT is just absurd.

Exactly there's no catch 22 here in the slightest.
And there's no need to make excuses for that douche. He knows exactly what his doing.
