See now, this is interesting and something I was talking to my good friend about who is also very knowledgeable about MMA. You say those fighters are douche bags (keep in mind I'm not defending them for getting caught) but if you probably want the honest truth, there are tons of fighters who are juicing...I guarantee it but they just don't get caught. There are ways around the tests and there are tons of fighters that exploit it I bet. The pressure to compete at that level is so high that they are almost forced to in some cases.
We were talking and he was telling me he was talking to one of his clients (he's a personal trainer) who is a natural bodybuilder and his client was explaining how it was about time to cycle off the roids before competition. I'm not saying this is going to be completely true in MMA, but honestly I'd keep an open mind about it.
You could also compare it to baseball, there are the few scapegoats that are called out and caught and thrown into trial or whatever when in actuality TONS of the players have used in their career I'd be willing to bet.
