Kazuo Misaki talked to the press about his epic bout against Jorge Santiago, and mentioned something that is pretty bothering. He injured his leg about a month ago, and even had to inject painkillers before the fight:

Dude this is about the most hilarious article I've ever read. Fighters ALWAYS fight with cortisone shots injected into them. In the UFC, in the WEC, in Japan, everywhere. I can't believe they're really trying to make a big deal out of this. If you don't think nearly every single fighter out there doesn't fight with cortisone shots in their system then you're dead wrong. There's not even any "hush, hush" around gyms about cortisone shots.

This is true.

Athletic commissions tend to close the window on injecting/using painkillers as a fight approaches though. If he had a cortisone shot the day of a fight, for instance, that could be an issue since it would give him an unfair advantage.

There are much more offensive things about the lack of a Japanese athletic commission anyway. Kazushi Sakuraba being allowed to fight?
