In a recent interview with SiriusXM Fight Club, I was asked how I ‘personally’ felt about the use of PED’s in MMA, and I pretty much responded that it doesn’t bother me (as a fan) whatsoever. Personally, I just want to see fights happen. It’s up to the commissions to deem those contests “fair” and the promoters to reprimand fighters who violate their organization’s policies. For all the people who took to Twitter and asked if I was serious, and how I could condone cheating. Relax, because Junior dos Santos doesn’t care either. The dude said so in this interview with Globo. Even if Alistair Overeem had the testosterone level of a sex-starved United States Marine Corps military base, he’d fight any human the UFC puts in front of him.
If the fight happens I will fight with pleasure, but I can tell if it is proved that the use of illegal substances is disrespect to the sport and something unfair to me. The ratio of testosterone in his body that there may be increased by 30% his strength and aggressiveness of it, I was told people who know the subject. Will really be unfair fight, but as a fighter will be ready to face anyone. If the athletic commission and the UFC want I’ll fight him. I am a fighter and will be there to fight, but it is sure to be disrespect to MMA and how serious is this sport. This will also be unfair, it will be unfair to me. I’ve never used these devices to gain strength. I think the right would do blood tests on wrestlers as is done in the Olympics, not the urine, since the blood is easier to detect these illegal substances. We want to know who the best really. No use to be the best liar. Being a world champion making false use of a lot of drugs, that’s not being champion. I can clearly say that I am the champion without ever having the use of any illegal artifice in order to get there. I favor more rigorous tests to assess whether someone is doped. It has to be a clean sport and these tests should occur more surprises. If Overeem is more aggressive and stronger the more he will resist blows and it will be difficult for me. If I lose will be unfair. He will not have fought better than I have fought doped.
In a world where we can’t draw the line between PEDs and tainted horse meat, Junior dos Santos stands alone in a UFC Octagon awaiting an opponent. The dude is totally willing to sign one of those release forms they give you before you go on the nuttiest ride at your local amusement park. He just wants to fight, and you should bow your heads in honor of his rawesomeness.
