Former doping specialist turned anti-doping crusader Victor Conte has a potentially sobering view of mixed martial arts.

During a recent appearance on UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan's popular podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience," Conte said he estimates around half of all current MMA fightersareusing some type of performance-enhancing drug.

"From total of all performance-enhancing drugs, it's in the neighborhood of 50 percent," Conte told Rogan.

Serious allegations, but are they legit or attention-seeking?

Really, all I could see was that moustache. Dude looks like he's trying to sell me a bridge.

Only fifty percent?

All mixed martial artists, or just professional mixed martial artists?

I wouldnt doubt it, I mean the cleanest guy in the game uses legal ped supplements because its a must, and obviously noone in MMA is labeled a cheated for roids.... Type in Fernando Vargas to see the difference between boxing and MMA labels.

Overally it really only makes sense to use them until the commisions actually start trying to bust guys consistently. In nevada at least we know they're not trying to lose the UFC business.

There is literally no way he could know that figure. It's not a figure you can estimate. Ridiculous.

Monorail!

He may be right, but this slimeball couldn't convince me of anything one way or the other.

this guy is just trying to keep his name relevant. Maybe the 2-7 fighters of the world fighting for a Big Mac combo are on PEDs, I highly doubt the number is that large for fighters at or towards the top of the sport
