Edgar's PED stance: Take them, I’ll beat you anyway
(mmafighting.com)
If you're starting to feel like 2015 is the year of the drug test in MMA, you're not alone. Bad news has seemingly been the sport's most plentiful commodity throughout the first six weeks of the new year, with Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz, Hector Lombard, and Jon Fitch all testing positive for something or other within the condensed calendar.

Frankie Edgar, Urijah Faber were both offered title fights against UFC champ T.J. Dillashaw
(mmafighting.com)
It's no secret that there are a current shortage of compelling contenders to challenge for T.J. Dillashaw's UFC bantamweight title. Injuries have sidelined the two most obvious choices, Dominick Cruz, the former champion, and Raphael Assuncao, the last man to beat Dillashaw. Their absences ultimately paved the way for another rematch against Renan Barao to booked for April 25 at UFC 186, but before that contract was inked, UFC officials tried their hand at a little creative matchmaking.

Schaub: Given penalties, PED use makes sense
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Schaub compellingly made the case that given the current penalties for PED use, it makes sense to use them. "Listen, I would love to hear an argument for why I shouldn't do steroids," he said. "Give me one. Let's say I take steroids and test positive. Say I'm a young kid [getting to the UFC] and I ask my dad, 'Dad, why shouldn't I take steroids?' Can I say, 'Well, you'll never be world champ.' That's not true. Anderson Silva's world champ. 'Well, you'll never fight for a title.' That's not true.

"It screwed me up for a few days,” White told MMAjunkie following Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 60 event in Broomfield, Colo. “I was messed up for a few days after that.

White jokes Rousey will have to start fighting men with win
(mmafighting.com)
"She's gonna have to start fighting men if she walks through Cat Zingano," White said after UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch. Rousey is an undefeated 10-0, all by finish. Only one woman, Miesha Tate, has been out of the first round with the UFC women's bantamweight champion. "Rowdy" is coming off a 16-second knockout of Alexis Davis at UFC 175 last July. "If Ronda Rousey walks through Cat Zingano the way she has walked through every body else, I don't know what to do with her," White said.

No Rory for Benson Henderson, White says: MacDonald already has fight booked
(mmajunkie.com)
After beating tough welterweight Brandon Thatch in style, ex-UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson floated the idea of fighting top contender Rory MacDonald for his second appearance in the division, even though he admitted he’d “be in for a handful” in facing such a tough opponent so early in his experiment at 170 pounds. There’s just one problem: MacDonald (18-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) is already booked, according to UFC President Dana White, who declined to name the Canadian’s next opponent. “He has a fight lined up already, but is hasn’t been announced yet,” White said at the post-event news conference for UFC Fight Night 60 at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo.
