UFC fighter Sean McCorkle, who has always been known for his blunt honesty, has another idea, though. If it were up to him, McCorkle would level the playing field by doing away with drug testing completely.

"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," he said. "It's just something that's banned."

I'm glad an MMA fighter said it, not that he'd be considered an expert on the subject, but it's true. Generally in the form of a prodrug that metabolizes into the known PED so the person using the product really doesn't know even if they check the full list of what's in it.

Should we take advice from a guy that calls himself "big sexy"?

The problem with society's take on PED's in sports is that people REALLY think all PED's are steroids or even that all PED's are illegal by law.

It's unfortunately the majority of people, but this is exactly the huge problem with lack of knowledge on the subject by media, fans, etc.

Caffeine is a PED under some AC's FFS. They're not arresting everyone who walks out of a Starbucks for trying to Chai Tea their way to massive muscles.

PED does not = roid.

although i still think PED's are wrong, i do think he's kinda right. its gotten to that point were so many athletes are abusing these things that its nearly impossible to regulate all of them. in a perfect world all professional athletes would never think to touch steroids but its far from that. i think they should be used for injury recovery but theres no way it would stop there.

Under no circumstance should MMA do away with drug testing. I think it would totally ruin the sport. Does anyone have any integrity anymore?

How is having Bigger faster and stronger athletes going to ruin a sport? Didn't they save baseball? Everyone loved watching Homerun derby everynight. It wasn't until the media and I suppose law enforcment decided to come down on it that the public was in a uproar. Truth be told Roids and PEDs when used correctly are a good thing that helps to keep athletes in the gym longer and helps them preform better. Most important it helps the to recover from injuries. I encourage everyone to watch Bigger Sronger Faster.
