    I'm betting Rumble is gone after his second fight back due to a dirty test

    It's still early, but this will be a strong argument for dumbest comment of the year.

    Wow Rumble, just wow.

    It's amazing, no astonishing, that so many fighters think the UFC could start signing guys for 10, 15 or 20 mil per year. The reason the major sports pay more seems to be completely irrelevant to their rants or maybe they really don't understand the economic principles behind the ridiculous "show me the money" rant.

    Additionally, Rumble's ignorance or lack of honor seems to take him down a path contrary to the core beliefs and values of MMA. If you can't fight 25 minutes against elite competition you're not elite. The idea is I bring my style, conditioning and training and you bring yours. We see who wins today and we offer respect to our opponent regardless of outcome. The fact that athletes can talk so openly today about using ped's today is sickening and saddening.

    Not to mention that Johnson was in talks for a return to the Octagon.

    Not every hot fighter knows there hot. The commission can't list every leagal sup, and sponsers, coaches, trainers & managers want there fighter to win, and some are willing to cheat at the fighters expense. Whats the old saying for compition "If your winning and not cheating means you haven't got caught yet. More money just means more reasons to cheat.

    Come on, what do you expect to hear from AJ. How about you fight as often as MLB players play then you can get paid equally, I hate when people compare MMA guys to other sports, other sports are much more active, and popular, just so many reasons why fighters get paid less.

Obviously fighter safety is paramount but I fail to see how the perfect ped cycle for a fighter , whatever that may be, would pose little if any threat to the opponent facing the juiced fighter. No steroid that I am familiar with is going to do anything to combat your opponent just flat out being better than you. See Vitor v A.Silva. , Bonnar v A.Silva , and the like . The biggest difference I see it making is in recovery and staying healthy in camps which is a win for me as a fan/consumer and im pretty sure a win for the fighter who is staying healthy and making $$.

    I'm sure the athletic commission can provide a list of acceptable supplements. If you can prove in the review that it was an unintentional failed test then a 1-2 yr ban is fine with me.
