We've been closely following the drama surrounding the drug testing for the upcoming UFC bout between Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin over the past week and now Nelson's manager has reached out to confirm that VADA testing is out.

Mike Kogan sent me a tweet on Twitter last night, explaining the "crafty" way Carwin's team found out of the testing.

Here's the tweet:

@brentbrookhouse this @ShaneCarwin @roynelsonmma VADA thing is been boiling over with too much drama.. Roy wanted additional testing Shane and his management danced around the issue talking about everything but the answer. Today I finally got the answer from Jason that they will not do VADA but will gladly do others. Problem is others aren't offering to sponsor the test and I'm pretty sure Jason not gonna pay. So this was crafty way to get out of blood testing. Either way he getting his ass beat by Roy so it's whatever at this point.

So, VADA is out.

I detect more vacant expressions and horsemeat.

Something about Carwin just rubs me the wrong way. He's ment to be this all American, stand up nice guy but he comes across as fake as Jones. All this dodging blood tests makes him look guilty regardless and saying Nelson is also cheating because of his hair makes him look petty even more.

If it's come down to him bringing hair into the reasons he's not willing to take the tests he's hiding something in my eyes. The UFC should step in and force him to take one.

in my experince anyone not willing to take a drug test (for any reason), knows they will be dirty. if someone's clean they don't care what's going on, they go in and take the test

Yep. Something's not right here.
