They actually call it 'random' as well which is laughable considering the fighters can basically choose when they are tested.
To be fair Lesnar had a reason. His management contacted Nevada immediately and said that he was 300miles from the nearest Lab. They said that they were happy for the commission to meet them where they were and do the test then. The Commission declined. And the four day delay was only because of the weekend (asked on Thursday, took test on Monday).

The Overeem case is a complete farce.

Combat sports more than any other sport relies on guy scompeting on a level playing field. So, in my opinion Overeem must only be granted a license to fight Brock Lesnar if he can prove once and for all that he is on steroids.

Badum....TISH!

I'm here all week. Please, try the veal.

Who cares what reason Brock had. Dudes been on gear since his NCAA/OVW days.

It doesn't matter if someone use to roid, it just matters if they are currently doing it.
Some strange logic. If they're capable of taking it once before they're certainly capable of doing it again. The reality is MMA is a sport riddled with hormone abusers.

Kind of helps when key UFC employees were former employees of NSAC. Lorenzo used to sit ON the commission.

I think they are concerned Overeem might blow up the test apparatus.

Reem and Brock have an incredible face off in the UFC preview. Both, especially Reem, seem to have nice round GH stomachs. Who knows the truth though!

He would be a dummy if he didnt know when to cycle off considering he knows when he will be tested.
