UFC’s Joe Rogan | Marijuana Is A Performance Enhancing Drug
(bjpenn.com)
“I think it is a performance enhancing drug. A lot of Brazilian guys use marijuana before they train. A lot of American jiu-jitsu guys use it before they train. And they don’t do it because it hurts them; they do it because it helps them.”

Mike Dolce-fueled Thiago Alves looks to further mounting title run at UFC on FX 2
(mmajunkie.com)
Thiago Alves had his chance and blew it. Regardless, there was no shame in losing a unanimous decision at UFC 100 to Georges St-Pierre in his only career title fight. If you've been in the 170-pound fray for as long as "Pitbull" has, chances are you've lost to the Canadian kingpin, too. So with St-Pierre currently idle and interim champion Carlos Condit patiently waiting, the rest are free to jockey for position and string together title runs. Jake Ellenberger and Johny Hendricks may have a 10-mile lead in the marathon, but Alves is at least competing in the race again following his submission win over Papy Abedi at UFC 138. Alves (19-8 MMA, 11-5 UFC) and fellow contender Martin Kampmann (18-5 MMA, 9-4 UFC) will headline UFC on FX 2, which takes place March 3 at Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia. Due to the time difference, the event takes place on Saturday afternoon in Australia, and the main card airs live on FX in North America on Friday, March 2.
