    The UFC and United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) have made significant revisions to the promotion's anti-doping policy in an effort to address concerns over an alarming rate of cases involving contaminated supplements.

    The two major revisions, which the UFC announced Monday, are the adoption of a "UFC prohibited list," which sets threshold limits on what constitutes a positive drug test for several banned substances, as well as a list of "certified supplements" that offer immunity to athletes in the event they are found to be contaminated.

    "The policy needs to be a living, breathing document that's progressive and allows us to pivot our stance, based on what the science supports," UFC chief business officer Hunter Campbell told ESPN. "Testing measures have gotten so good and the types of contaminants are changing constantly, you're seeing a rise in these types of cases."

    Since the UFC partnered with USADA and launched its year-round drug testing program in 2015, a significant percentage of the cases involving failed drug tests have ultimately been linked to the ingestion of contaminated legal supplements, according to UFC senior vice president of athlete health and performance Jeff Novitzky.

    Essentially, the UFC and USADA have found that as drug testing technology advances -- and is capable of detecting extremely trace amounts of banned substances -- it is resulting in the punishment of athletes who have unknowingly consumed contaminated supplements and received no performance-enhancing benefits from them.

    i was just thinking about you. wondering if you might be losing your online identity a little bit due to the accusations surrounding Conor, all very regrettable. anyway, nice to see your persona is still very much intact as you underline that you are a complete do-nothing muppet.

    If he didn't take them knowingly he wouldn't have taken enough to be pulsing over a year later.

    Since I became a member here he’s not once fallen out of character. No matter how angry others get, no matter what the circumstances, he doesn’t break character. I find it hilarious.

    Ya, I am used to it and the commitment is rock solid...I do laugh at times.

    Still creates copycat trolls, and "shits up the threads" with arguing instead of discussion. Triggering anger gets old for some users of forums, and on the other hand apparently that is exactly what some enjoy.

    To each their own, MMA forums are filled with Shtick posters.


    All I know is that if somebody thinks Jon Jones has failed20+ PED tests and counting then they are gullible, lying, or trolling...Jon Jones is one of the dirtiest fighters in MMA history...The ESPN Jones defense tweet is hilarious and insulting...still haven't found the source for either of his two failed PED tests

    How can you be upset at someone who agrees with the UFC narrative? All he does is push the company line and people get insanely upset by it. the only thing he pushes is what the UFC promotes.

    I am not upset, that is your word...I just call a troll a troll...he fits the definition perfectly...trolls get old to some people, not just me.

    Personally I just don't praise the trolls
