    So let me get this straight: If you get roided-up and beat someones ass, you get the W plus a suspension, but if you smoke a bowl and choke some one out, you get the W taken away and suspended?

    How the hell does that make sense? Is the Franca/Sherk fight going to be changed to a no contest now? Doesn't seem to make any sense to me. I know we've talked about it before, but in light of recent events I thought maybe we should approach the subject again.

    What do you guys think/feel about it? Illegal recreation drug is different than an illegal anabolic enhancer? Should decisions be changed for each occurence to discourage use, or should no decision be overturned?

    Discuss....

    How many times are people going to have to be told that different commisions have different rules

    the Diaz/Gomi fight result is the only one i know of being overturned due to drugs in their system

    fighters are caught all the time with other stuff in their system, and their wins aren't stripped from them. Royce, Thiago Alves, etc. got fined, but their records still show the W. Sylvia got his belt stripped from him when he tested positive for juicing.

    there is no consistency with testing or with the punishments

    thomas & mack center in vegas


    PRIDE probably paid off officials so that this loss doesn't tarnish gomi's record :o
