Very interesting. I'd say give him the benefit of the doubt, or "confusion". I'd like to hear more facts though. Has Wanderlei ever failed a drug test before I don't remember that happening?

I don't think he has failed one but I'm not sure how heavily regulated drug testing was back in PRIDE? Like I heard there was none at all? Please someone correct me if I'm wrong though

Well yeah that is certainly the Pride reputation.

I just don't believe Wanderlei, he's lost a lot of my respect after watching TUF Brazil 3.

There was no drug testing in Pride and he was long suspected to be a user. NSAC can randomly test at any time and he has a gym there, so it wouldn't be surprising if he tried to run out on them like Overeem did awhile back.
