Wasn't that the same card that Kit Cope tested positive for anobolic substances? I could be wrong but i think it is. The number of failed drug tests is on the rise, its scary.

I would like to see if he does has his license. If he does, I can get his team in contact with a lawyer who will make sure he isn't punished.

If he doesn't have his medical license, he needs to be punished like everyone else who breaks the rules..

I think when anyone who breaks a drug test or rule in the UFC or WEC, they should automatically have to face Cro Cop has a form of punishment. That will drop fail drug test drastically...haha..

Kit took the steroid 13 months ago because he had major sholder surgery so he could heal faster. Its not like he is "juicing" to cheat...Alves took a dieuretic to cut weight the fact that it is a banned substance is ridiculous.

With the sport growing and the number fighters arising, statistically the number of failed drug tests should go up too. But yeah, it is sad that our pure sport is begining down the same paths as all the others. Soon we will have a HW champ crash into another car full of kids while he was all wigged out on coke and booze...

Yeah a lot of fighters are doing roids. I dont think it is due to higher usage. I think it is just Higher testing? Am I wrong? Feel free to correct me but arent there something like 200 substances that are banned that arent/ cannot be tested?

But the fact still remains that Kit Took a Banned substance. Whether it was for performance enhancing or for healing a injury. He took them and they are banned. If he did it to recover from a injury faster isnt that a lot like taking them to train better?
