    It’s now clear why Neil Magny won’t be fighting Vicente Luque this weekend at UFC Fight Night: Dos Anjos vs. Lee in Rochester.

    Magny, a longtime UFC welterweight, revealed in an Instagram post on Tuesday that he failed a USADA drug test ahead of a scheduled bout against Luque, which was expected to co-headline Saturday’s card.

    Magny wrote on social media that he was informed May 11 that he had tested positive for the anabolic agent Di-Hydroxy-LGD-4033 in a May 5 out-of-competition drug test administered by the UFC’s anti-doping partner.

    In his statement, Magny denied any wrongdoing and stated that he is “fully…

    This is becoming ludicrous at this point? What is % of top 20 talent who has failed a test in the last 5 years?

    And how many champs?

    It feels MUCH higher than other sports...

    This is one of those can’t miss contaminated supplement situations. Magny has been a good soldier all along the way and he isn’t looking to hide or explain away anything. This will disappear.

    Or he has knowingly used PED's and will play the same tainted supplement card as the others.

    Maybe, but do your research on Neil and get back to me. Dude has gone above and beyond to support USADA’s efforts including submitting his samples for additional levels or testing, for their research purposes. You may be right, but I’m not just withholding judgement; I’m expecting exoneration. All IMHO.

    He seems like a good dude. I am just very skeptical of all fighters nowadays. There isn't one person on the roster that I would bet money is 100% clean.

    Unpopular opinion: regular strict testing is good, because it reduces what people can get away with, preventing a free-for-all situation like we've seen in pro-wrestling that led to dudes having heart attacks at the age of 30, and also and forces athletes to be very careful if they want to get around it, which again means they'll probably end up being more careful with their health in general. And even if the cheating is still there, if it's less drastic then it levels the playing field a bit.

    However, USADA is fucking idiotic for the following reasons:
    1) Arbitrary ban lengths that have ruined careers.
    2) Arbitarily banning specific supplements with no clear criteria, like meldonium or fucking 7-keto. Part of this is because they follow the WADA list, but no one is pointing a gun to their head saying they can't decide what is and is not real cheating. Frankly, if you can buy something off the counter in CVS it probably shouldn't be on the list.
    3) Not putting everything banned on their website in different languages. They don't even have Portuguese fully covered for fuck's sake.
    4) Long bans for admitting to supplements on paper work, even really minor ones. I know ignorance is not an excuse for not following policy, and HGH is pretty serious, but come the fuck on, two years to Cro Cop for something prescribed by a doctor when the only reason you caught him is he admitted it? Cro Cop shouldn't have gotten more than a year. And Machida's case was just batshit. 2 years for something he admitted to on paperwork that wasn't on the fucking Portuguese website and was silly to put on the list in the first place, and a first offense on top of that.
    5) Forcing fighters to have GPS trackers on their cell phone 24/7. At the very least they should be financially compensated a tiny bit for that, as in a monthly or quarterly stipend or something.

    and the stupidest thing of all:
    6) Jon Jones getting free turinabol for life on the thinnest veil of plausible deniability when they've regularly fucked over other fighters "out of an abundance of caution." And then they made it even worse by lying to Gustafsson about the extent of the situation and then asking him to decide on the spot if wants to stay on the card while recording him. Even without that it'd still be the worst.

    TL;DR: Drug testing is good, even when it's not full proof, but USADA are still total asshats.

    I feel the anti - anti doping crusaders arguments about about what should and shoudnt be banned are approaching the same level as the amount of englishman that could manage Englands footy team when they are losing...

    Tosh. Education on this topic takes more than a few hours on Wikipedia.

    Yeah mate. USADA and its testing protocals proved to be totally perfect with the Jon Jones situation and guys like Tom Lawlor were treated totally fairly.

    Those of us who were saying what a shitshow USADA was for years beforehand sure did end up looking silly.

    I think the testing is especially nowadays much better than in most professional sports

    Unless you're considering CBD/THC/Marijuana as a PED, I'd bet my last dollar on Nate Diaz and Kron Gracie

    The UFC is indifferent about what happens to their fighters.

    I dobt that seriously. It has resulted in MULTIPLE big fights being canceled over the past few years. They don't want that.
