Meh, he's right it does show mental weakness and honestly I think guys who take shit are easier fighters to beat. Once you survive their initial onslaught, because those guys tend to wear down physically, mentally, and emotionally if they feel they aren't winning. in fact I think the number of fighters who get busted usually lose their fights beforehand. of course there are exceptions....
Steroids allow a man to reach a physical level he cannot possibly reach on his own. Not just strength, but endurance and recovery as well. This is a straight up fact; just look at sports where steroids ran rampant and how good the athletes became. It has nothing to do with mental weakness or anything. This is just something Bendo will tell himself.
I guarantee that if there was no testing or steroids were allowed, every top fighter would be on them.
