    I believe so. I believe the fighters on give pee tests and HGH needs blood tests. I also believe fighters only test for blood once a year during licensing.

    But I guess if you only fight once every 6 months, that's enough time to run a cycle and PCT yourself back to homeostasis in time for drug testing.

    All UFC/Strikeforce signees must undergo pre-contract drug screenings for PEDs


    Zuffa is making it a bit more difficult to become a UFC or Strikeforce fighter.

    Officials today announced that all potential UFC and Strikeforce fighters, including those who compete on "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series, must first pass a mandatory pre-contract screening for performance-enhancing drugs.

    The policy has been put into immediate effect.

    Once signed, fighters will undergo the normal event-related drug testing performed by state athletic commissions (or outside agencies Zuffa hires when no regulatory body is available in a specific region, such as Brazil and the U.K.).

    "We're committed to the health and safety of our athletes, and we take it very seriously," UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta stated "We already work closely with athletic commissions to protect our athletes, and now we're taking it one step further. We're going to test any potential UFC or Strikeforce fighter before finalizing their contract. This shows that we don't want performance-enhancing drugs in our sport."

    The announcement was made the same day that the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced that former Strikeforce champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal failed a Jan. 7 drug test due to an anabolic steroid.

    Currently, nearly 350 fighters are under contract to Zuffa. In 2010, the organization announced customized accident insurance coverage for all competitors.

    "The health and safety of our athletes is our top priority," UFC president Dana White stated. "We've seen the issues performance-enhancing drugs have caused in other sports, and we're going to do everything we can to keep them out of the UFC and Strikeforce. Our athletes are already held to the highest testing standards in all sports by athletic commissions. Our new testing policy for performance-enhancing drugs only further shows how important it is to us to have our athletes competing on a level playing field."

    This is Cyborgs first fight, when she was still a women. She was still an aggressive beast, but her body was that of a female and not a shaved down albino ape.

    Lol, I wonder if Dana didn't send a Zuffa hitman to take out Mike's knees so Chael and Bisping could happen. I say Munoz got Tonya Harding'ed.

    But who's gonna be the UK spokesman once Bisping is deceased? Chael is gonna destroy him. The trash talk should be absolutely epic though. This is almost too good to be true.

    Chael Sonnen: 'I'm a defender of Bisping'


    Anyone hoping middleweight Chael Sonnen will start an epic bout of trash talking with Michael "The Count" Bisping might find themselves let down.

    "I'm a Bisping supporter," Sonnen says. "I'm not on the anti-Bisping bandwagon. I never have been."

    Bisping replaces the injured Mark Munoz as an opponent for Sonnen in the co-main of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Jan. 28 show in Chicago. The winner will face champion Anderson Silva later this year.

    USA TODAY spoke to Sonnen on Tuesday, minutes after UFC announced the change in opponents. Excerpts from the conversation:

    What was your reaction when you first heard that Mark Munoz was injured?

    I don't know if had a reaction. I don't like to hear anybody being hurt, in the ring, outside of the ring. So I wasn't happy about it

    I hope he's ok. I hope it's a matter of "Take a little ice and a couple of Tylenol and you'll be back," but I don't know the extent of it. I'm not a doctor.

    Do you think Bisping has earned the right to fight for a title shot?

    I'm a Bisping supporter. I think he has. I think he's fought a lot of important matches.

    I don't know how tough the guys he fought were, how many ranked guys he had -- I'm not terribly familiar with his record. But at the end of the day, you can say what you want about his opponents, he doesn't pick his opponents. They pick his opponents and he goes in and he wins over and over again.

    I think it's really relevant, especially for the Bisping naysayers, to realize he's fighting main-event fights. He's carrying cards. He's selling out arenas. In this industry, that's huge. He's done his part.

    So I'm not on the anti-Bisping bandwagon. I never have been.

    When you think about the way he generally fights, do you think for you he's a more difficult or easier opponent than Mark Munoz?

    I think there's a couple of guys on the roster who I sit back and look at and think, "Geez, I'd just as soon not have to fight that guy," purely based on style. Purely based where you look at and go, "I'm not just not sure what I would do." Munoz is one of those guys.

    There's other guys, and I've got locked in there with those guys. Paulo Filho was one of those guys. (Yushin) Okami was one of those guys. (Nate) Marquardt was one of those guys. Where I look at them and I go, "I don't know what I'm going to do here." But you accept the challenge all the same, and you go out there and you figure it out.

    Munoz was on that list. So mentally, in my mind, I think Munoz is a real fierce competitor.

    But I don't have a lot of ill will towards Bisping's skills either. I watch him, and like I said, more than anything, I watch him over and over again.

    In some ways, Bisping's about as far from Munoz stylistically as you can get. How concerned are you about being able to adjust your game plan so close to the fight?

    I've never done that. I've never had a game plan. I don't fully know what it means. I hear the term, especially in boxing, I hear guys talk
    about their plan or refer fighting to a game or whatever. I've never done that. I've never been part of that. I don't really know what it means fully.

    So I don't care. I don't care about that at all.

    I'm not ready yet. If you were to call me and say, "Hey, Chael, are you ready to go?" I'd say, "No, I'm not." But the good news is, I don't have to go today. The fight's a little bit down the line and there's still time to prepare and zero in. ... I've got enough time to
    do, but I've got just enough time. It's right around the corner.

    My focus is on me. It's not on whoever they put across from me.

    Given that Bisping tends to keep his fights standing, how likely are we to see a repeat of your approach in the Brian Stann fight?

    You never know. I don't ever plan for those things.

    With the Stann fight, I felt, "Well, if there's an opportunity to take him down, maybe I can score some points from down there." But I didn't
    know if I could take him down. I wasn't confident in it. So you always look at plan B or plan C, what's going to happen next if this doesn't happen.

    That's the way my mind works. I kind of jump around a little bit and I do that in an attempt to be prepared for whatever may
    come at me.

    There becomes a big confusion, like somebody will see me fight and say, "This guy really likes to do these two things." And somebody will watch Mike fight and say, "These are the things that Mike likes to do."

    Well, the reality is, we do them because we can get away with them. But as soon as we can't get away with them, that's when you're going to start to see, "Oh, there's a lot more. There's a lot more in the tank. There's a lot more in the arsenal."

    That's what I meant. If something opens up, great. But if it doesn't, we've got to adapt too. I'm not a one-trick pony out there; I'm the best fighter in the world. And I'm the best fighter in the world because I can fight anywhere.

    What did you think of Bisping's fight with Jason "Mayhem" Miller?

    I didn't get to see it. I feel like I saw it. I feel like I could tell you all about it because I read so much and I saw so much. Some of the guys that represent Mayhem, I also work with. So I feel like I can know a lot about it.

    I think in fairness, even though Bisping went out and did his job, I think maybe Mayhem made it a little bit easier on him. I don't think Mayhem fought top notch that night. That's the reports that I'm hearing.

    But who cares? Again, I get all these naysayers about Bisping, but the bottom line is, he wins. He goes out and he wins his fights. He should
    be credited for that.

    How would you describe Bisping as a fighter? What jumps out about his style?

    I think he's real active. I think if he had a strength, it would be the fact that he'll go hard. He'll fight hard the whole time. He's been in some real donnybrooks that have come down to the last moments of the last round, and he's able to continue fighting. While other guys are fading, he's still pushing. I think he's a very tough guy in that regard.

    I think he's good. I hear a lot of negative things said about him, but I think most of it comes from frustration of maybe his personality or something like that. I think if you're real objective and you look at his skillset and his in-ring ability, you'll know that he's a talented guy.

    You just mentioned his personality -- why do you think so many people dislike him, and on the flip side, why don't you?

    I can only guess. He appears to be a little bit brash. He's definitely ****y and arrogant, which is two qualities that I like in a person. I like a ****y guy and I like an arrogant guy, so he earns points with me in those regards, but I think it turns a lot of people off.

    I don't really know. When you get a guy that's out there demanding title shots and you look at his list of accomplishments, you kind of go on, "Who'd you beat? Why do you think you deserve that shot?" And so it gets a little bit confusing in those regards.

    But again, I'm a defender of Bisping. ... He doesn't get to pick his opponent. They pick his opponent. He fights them all and at the end of the day, he beats them all.

    I don't have his record in front of me, but I think outside of the (Dan) Henderson loss, I'm not sure he's ever been beat in
    the UFC. I believe they gave Wanderlei (Silva) a win over him, which was possibly the right call, possibly not; I know there was some controversy around it.

    But I've never even seen Bisping in trouble. I've never seen him come out of there cut and scraped and bruised. He seems to go in, take care of business and go home.

    Do you think Bisping could beat Anderson Silva?

    Almost any statement can be true if you include the word "could." I wouldn't pick him to beat him. I think match-up wise, it may not be that favorable of a stylistic match, but I don't know.

    I'll tell you this: If you want to make a lot of money; if you want to quit your day job and really make a lot of money -- you should ask me before every fight who's going to win, and then you should bet heavily on the opposite. I am the single-worst
    fight picker. It drives my mother crazy. My mom says it's like I know nothing about the sport.

    I can give you a perfect example. I took (Anthony) "Rumble" Johnson and I took Chad Mendes just over the weekend. So it shows you what I know.

    I don't like the way Bisping talks. I don't like the way a lot of these guys talk when it comes to Anderson. They all want to talk about their shot, their shot, their shot.

    I don't want a shot. I've never asked Dana White for a shot at the title. I want the title, there's a tremendous difference between my mindset and everybody else's.

    If you want your name in lights and you want that one big paycheck, go out and get your shot. I don't want either. I've got
    plenty of money. I've got plenty of notoriety. What I don't have is a 12-pound gold belt reminding me each day that I'm the baddest man God ever made. So that's what I'm after and that's what sets me apart from everybody else.

    But again -- I'm a supporter of Bisping. I'm a supporter of him getting his shot. I think he's done the right things. I think
    he fought the people they asked him to fight. He did it in main-event status, main-event fashion. He's fought the five-round fights, whether he ended up using all the five rounds or not. He signed the contract and he went out and did it.

    I'm not a naysayer, man. I'm a supporter of Bisping.

    How do you decide which fighters deserve your support and which ones deserve your disdain?

    First off, I never go after anybody unless he's on top.

    When I started on the Nogueira brothers -- and of course, I leave them alone now; I don't take any pleasure in them falling from grace, or certainly the big one having to go through an injury; that brings me no pleasure at all. But when I started on
    them, they were supposedly this untouchable pair, fighters of fighters, men's men. And I'm looking at it going, "No, you're not."

    It's the same thing with Wanderlei Silva. I don't taking any pleasure in kicking Wanderlei now, now that the word's out that he's yesterday's news.

    But at the time when I started picking on him, it's because nobody else would. A guy puts a tattoo on the back of his skull, puts his beady eyes on you and rolls his wrists around, and all of a sudden the whole world thinks that's scary. That doesn't do anything for me. I'll slap you right on your face while you're rolling your wrists around. My point wasn't so much to attack Wanderlei, as it was to let the rest of the world know, "Who cares? Who cares about his tattoo and his beady eyes and his rolly
    little wrists?

    That's really where it started with Anderson too. Anderson became this untouchable guy. I've got to walk around in the back at the UFC and watch fellow fighters ask him for his autograph, and it makes my stomach sick.

    If you're going to be a fighter in the UFC, you need to be fighting for one reason, and that is the championship. If the day comes when I realize that I just can't reach that championship, I'm out. I'm not going to stick around for a paycheck or for the applause of the crowd. I'm not in it for that. I'm in it for the championship, the one and only reason you should be in this sport.

    So my disdain doesn't necessarily go to the fighters. It goes to fighters that refuse to fight the fighters.

    Michael Bisping: “I would have had to be a fool to turn it down.”


    If you’re one of the many MMA fans wondering why Michael Bisping would risk his four-fight winning streak and spot on the contendership ladder by taking on an opponent with Chael Sonnen’s skill-set “The Count” has an answer for you – he had no other choice. No, his hand was not forced by his bosses at the UFC but rather by a sense of self-belief and appreciation for the opportunity he was given.

    Bisping addressed the situation in a blog for FoxSports on Tuesday evening where he acknowledged the significant challenge in front of him with less than two weeks’ notice to prepare but also explained it’s a test he’s more than willing to take given the stakes.

    Dana (White) hadn’t even finished saying Munoz was out before I was planning how to beat Sonnen in my head,” wrote the 32-year old Brit. “I’ve accepted fights on short notice for the UFC throughout my career, but this one is a massive, massive chance for me, and I am very grateful to Dana, (matchmaker) Joe Silva, and the UFC. I was already hugely grateful to be asked to fight on FOX, but to fight Chael on FOX … well, there are hundreds of fighters who would kill for this opportunity, and I would have had to be a fool to turn it down.”

    The 22-3 Bisping made it clear he has no illusions about Sonnen’s talent in terms of takedowns and top control but has little concern for the 26-11-1 grappler’s abilities beyond those aspects of his game.

    “Next week, I’m ready to go all guns blazing. A fight is a fight, and at this level anything can happen, but all things being equal, Chael Sonnen cannot knock me out. He can’t submit me, either,” Bisping began before bottom-lining the situation by adding, “The worst that is going to happen is that he will outpoint me and, if I don’t beat him, I didn’t deserve a title-shot against Anderson Silva anyway.”

    Fans can catch Bisping-Sonnen scrap next weekend at UFC on FOX 2 at an event headlined by Rashad Evans meeting Phil Davis with a future date against 205-pound champion Jon Jones up for grabs. Bisping’s original opponent, Demian Maia, will now face unbeaten All-American wrestler Chris Weidman in his place.

    Jose Aldo would move to lightweight if offered title-shot


    After his win over Kenny Florian this past October, UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo was asked about the possibility of a fight against lightweight title-holder Frankie Edgar. His response involved a willingness to face Edgar but only if “The Answer” came down in weight, deferring to his head trainer at Nova Uniao, Andre Pederneiras, as having final say on if/when he’ll move up to 155 pounds. While Pederneiras was adamantly opposed to his star pupil changing divisions at the time it now appears his stance has softened some, leaving the door open for a legitimate super-fight at some point in 2012.
    “If it depends on me, it won’t happen. Unless he leaves the team to train somewhere else and someone agrees with that, because I will not,” said Pederneiras in a conversation with Sherdog before adding a caveat, saying, “It won’t happen for now, unless he goes straight for a title shot. Not, ‘Oh no, he left the featherweight belt, moved up to lightweight and started from the beginning.’ No way.”

    While Edgar will defend his title against Ben Henderson at UFC 144 no clear-cut contender has emerged for the winner the face. UFC President Dana White has also expressed his openness to the idea of Aldo heading up to lightweight if he wants to though he’s stopped short of guaranteeing an immediate title-shot.

    Aldo holds an overall record of 21-1 and is on the cusp of eliminating all legitimate opposition at 145 pounds after knocking out previously unbeaten Chad Mendes in the first round of their headlining bout at UFC 142. Other notable opponents he’s taken out in dominant fashion include Florian, Mark Hominick, Mike Brown, and Urijah Faber.

    Choosing between Gina and Brittney would a hard pick, but Logan Stanton would still be my tops.

    GSP pulling for Nick Diaz to beat Carlos Condit, Targets November 2012 Return


    On Sat., Feb. 4, 2012, Stockton slugger Nick Diaz will take on Carlos Condit at UFC 143 in Las Vegas, Nevada, to determine who will hold the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim welterweight title belt. Whoever emerges victorious will not only own a new shiny accessory for their waist, but will also have a ticket to be the first to fight Georges St. Pierre when he returns from his ACL injury.

    "GSP" is currently on the shelf for an indefinite amount of time because of surgery on his right knee, which will take significant time and grueling rehabilitation to fully recover.

    Regardless of who wins the interim title bout at UFC 143, it makes for an interesting match up. St. Pierre was supposed to fight both men on separate occasions, all within the span of a few days. However, because of some missed press conferences by Diaz, and then an injury suffered by St. Pierre, neither fight ended up going down.

    Tonight
    (Jan. 16, 2012), St. Pierre appeared on HDNet's "Inside MMA" to discuss his injury, as well as his feelings about "Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit." According to "Rush," he'd like to see Diaz come out on top:
    Quote:
    "I do actually care. There are two guys that are fighting, Nick Diaz
    and Carlos Condit -- Carlos Condit is a very nice guy. I never trained with him
    but I have trained in Albuquerque along with some of his teammates, and he's a
    very nice guy. I like him a lot. But, the reason why I wish Nick Diaz to win
    this fight is that I want to fight Nick Diaz. I don't wanna fight Carlos Condit.
    I wanna fight Nick Diaz. But, in another way, I just hope the best man will win.
    But if the best man is Nick Diaz, I will appreciate it more, because it will be
    a better build up for a fight."

    Regarding his injury, St. Pierre said that he feels like it was his own fault for possibly not listening to his body when he suffered a less painful injury to his left knee, sometime last year:

    Quote:
    "One of the reasons why I got that injury is that I didn't do that
    (take enough time rehabbing). I didn't listen to myself. I had a first injury to
    my left knee. I tried to come back too fast and I was compensating with my other
    leg. That's how I hurt myself."

    No champion wants to have his belt tossed around or his legacy tarnished by someone else walking around with the "interim" tag. For "GSP," the belt is irrelevant. It's just about winning the next fight:
    Quote:
    "For me, I try to not think about the belt. When I'm going into a
    fight, when I fight the winner of that fight, I'm not thinking 'I'm the
    champion.' I'm thinking I'm gonna fight for the title. Because, if you lose,
    you're gonna lose the title, even if you had it before or not. That won't
    matter."

    St. Pierre also spent a few minutes discussing some of the criticism he's taken during his career. Criticism that has gone so far as to label him as a "boring" or "safe" fighter. He acknowledges the naysayers and had a bit to say about what it's been like to be a champion under the magnifying glass:

    Quote:
    "The thing is, when you defend the title and do it a few times, there
    is a routine that comes with it and people expect you to win. And they not only
    expect you to win, they expect you to do great. Sometimes, it can play on your
    mind. That's a little bit of what happened to me. I felt like I lost a little
    bit of motivation. That's the danger that can happen with champions sometimes."

    At the end of the segment, St. Pierre reiterated just how much he is hoping for a Nick Diaz win at UFC 143. He likes Carlos Condit. He thinks he's a nice guy. But Diaz is, by far, the fight he desires:Quote:
    "That's really the fight that I wanted to have and the fight was
    going to happen in the beginning. And it didn't happen, because he (Diaz) didn't
    show up for the promotion. Then after I got hurt and this whole thing happened
    and -- that's really the fight that I wanted to have happen. Even though I like
    Carlos Condit better as a person, I would rather fight Nick Diaz."

    What do you think, Maniacs? Will "GSP" get his wish? Or will he find himself face-to-face with "The Natural Born Killer" next time he enters the Octagon?

    Cain Velasquez vs. Bigfoot Silva Not Happening.


    A heavily rumored matchup between former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez (9-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) and Antonio Silva (16-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is not happening, a source today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

    The bout was reportedly targeted for April, when the UFC is scheduled to return to Atlanta for UFC 146.

    While Silva is still targeted to make his octagon debut on that month, his opponent is undetermined.

    "Bigfoot" most recently appeared in Strikeforce, where he was eliminated in the semifinals of the promotion's heavyweight grand prix when Daniel Cormier knocked him out at an event this past June. The loss snapped a three-fight win streak capped off by a stunning upset over Fedor Emelianenko in the tournament's quarterfinals.

    Velasquez lost his belt this past November when Junior Dos Santos knocked him out at UFC on FOX to take the title. It was the first loss of his professional career in 10 fights.

    This honestly would have been more one sided than the upcoming Chael Bisping fight Bigfoot should fight a gatekeeper like Kongo.

    Yeah, debuting against Cain seems a bit too much.
