PRIDE Fighting Championship did not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) or drugs of abuse; however, it was willing to make an exception for any substance derived from steroids, according to longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Enson Inoue.

Inoue was on Joe Rogan's podcast a few weeks ago and he said not only did they not test for steroids, but they actively encouraged fighters (including Inoue himself) to take them.

It was well known at the time that roids were allowed in Pride.

We all knew roids were present in PRIDE, but for a lot of people who still will not believe their mma idols were roiding and winning/losing fights by taking falls (Coleman v Takada) just listen to the Joe Rogan Podcast with Enson. No surprise here, honestly. It was run by the Yakuza, because a major crime org. most definitely runs a 'clean' mma org.
