UFC fighter Sean McCorkle recently remarked the MMA community should level the playing field by doing away with testing for drugs.
This remark from McCorkle, known for his blunt honesty, came after Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal tested positive for steroids and a screening policy was announced by the UFC.
“What you end up with is a situation of where the guys who are beating the test, where the guys who can afford to get a doctor to prescribe whatever they want, where the guys who have access to stuff, they have an unfair advantage already,” he said on Tuesday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I think we’d be pretty naive to think that every person who’s ever taken anything was caught. So I think, to me, in all professional sports, I say, let guys do whatever they want to do and be done with it. I don’t think anybody’s going to make or break their career based on steroids unless you’re talking about longevity, because to my understanding, the majority of them are used for recovery from injury.”
“There’s stuff at [nutrition store] GNC that will make you pee hot for a PED, and it’s not necessarily something that’s going to enhance your performance at all,” McCorkle said. “It’s just something that’s banned.”
