😏Hmmmm...somebody tests positive for steroids BEFORE fighting for a UFC World Championship, but is still allowed to fight, and it takes almost 3 years before the public finds out?

Open your eyes!

I am clean, and am willing to prove it with a year of Olympic Testing before any fight, I wonder if the current UFC champion at 135 is willing to agree to the same?

what do you mean? some are crucified and others are not even mentioned!

Open your eyes!

I'm clean, and I'm willing to try doing a year of Olympic tests before any fight, I wonder will be that the current champion of UFC 135 is willing to agree with the same?

How so? Some are crucified and others aren't even quoted!

Frankie Edgar--White said I'm in if Aldo or McGregor get injured, 'you can print that in bold'

“If someone gets hurt I’m the guy stepping in,” Edgar said in an interview posted on UFC.ca. “And that’s from (UFC President) Dana White. You can print that in bold letters!”

Edgar says that he knows that McGregor is the fight that will have the biggest positive effect on his bank account, but his focus is the title.

“I want that title,” Edgar said. “That, to me, is the most important thing. Conor may be the money fight, but when you win a title that stays with you forever. Money comes and goes. You’re a champ for the rest of your life. I did it at 155 and I want to do it at 145.”

Holly Holm: I'm not being rushed into title fight with UFC champ Ronda Rousey

“First off, there was no hesitation because I feel like that’s not a mental strength,” Holm told MMAjunkie. “You have to be mentally strong to get in there. When they called, it was like, ‘This is what’s next. Awesome.’ If I would have felt like I should have said no, then when the next fight comes it would be, ‘Was I doubting myself before? Am I doubting myself now?’ That’s just a not mentality I have in me, and I don’t choose to feel that way at all.”

Holm said she knew the Rousey fight would eventually materialize. She didn’t know it would be this soon, but at 33 and with nearly 14 years of pro combat sports experience to her credit, there might be no better time for Holm to compete for the UFC’s grandest prize.

“Did it come sooner than we would think? That’s not a lie to say yeah, it came soon, but I’m really excited for it,” Holm said. “There’s so many girls in the division, but guess what: Even before I signed with the UFC it was like, ‘Hey, when are you going to fight Ronda Rousey?’ Now we’ve got it scheduled and can really focus on it.

“There’s been all these questions about it, but I’ve had all these other fighters in front of me. But I didn’t want to focus on anything but the fight that’s right in front of me. Now I can really focus and dive into this training camp, and I’m really excited for it.”

Conor McGregor did this interview, Donald Cerrone responded

“Rafael has nothing; Donald has nothing,” McGregor said. “Rafael will be lucky to make six figures this fight – and rightfully so. He shouldn’t even make six figures because he doesn’t even bring in six figures. Donald will probably scrape six figures because he shows up and fights every couple weeks, and he earns that six figures. But he don’t earn much more than that.”
That’s why, McGregor said, they should be happy with his planned move up to 155 pounds.
“Make no mistake: They want it as well,” he said. “They don’t give a f-ck about each other. If either of them had the opportunity to scrap that fight and come fight me, I can change their life. I can make them rich. I have the numbers.”

Just focus on your task at hand @TheNotoriousMMA you do realize you have to see me face to face in 2 days
