Congressman: Steroids still plague pro wrestling
I confess--I was shocked, shocked by this news.
Do they test for steroids in the UFC and MMA in general?
As far as I know its up to the athletic commision of the state to set the guidelines.
on a side note, ever wonder what they make for fighting?

Those are actually higher payouts than I expected.
I thought they did test MMAers for steroids, in a defensive measure to avoid getting the grief that the pro wrestlers etc. are getting?
