Henderson in support of increased drug testing

 

Henderson not only supports White’s new stance, but the UFC champ would also be in favor of stretching testing one step further to include both blood testing and random testing.

"I’d be for increased testing," explained Henderson. "It keeps the playing field even. It makes it so guys have to do a better job of either hiding it, or just not taking it. I think a lot of guys would actually just do a better job of hiding. Like guys in the NFL, some get busted, but the guys who get busted are just the, not very intelligent ones, because it’s not the hardest thing just to time it correctly to where you don’t get caught whenever you get tested.

"That being said, I’d be for more rigorous testing. They want the blood doping testing? We can do that, too. I’m cool with that. Random testing? I’d be for that.

"I’m all for any testing," Henderson finished. "Random, blood testing; whatever you want to do, let’s do it, because for me, I never even considered it."

I suppose everyone is against PEDs until they get older and find out that they can't recover from injuries as fast or as easily as they did in their early 20s.When the paychecks become less and/or you lose fights or win in a boring manner because of lingering injuries, you start to realize that the risk of getting caught compared to the risk of losing out on paydays is a chance worth taking.

Exactly... someone using TRT responsibly nowadays shouldn't have a problem with testing.  It's those that abuse it that should be scared, and then it's not TRT, its Steroid abuse.

  Yeah that's what I mean't too, I thought I also saw Dan make a similar statement where the majority of responses were "But TRT is ok?" same with the Sonnen thread. With so many repeat stories I just assumed this was a follow up or repeat of it.     Lame, why not be specific, it's not like Bendo is a nobody named Henderson, he's the LW champ! Attracting someone to the thread with a slightly bigger name...?

Sonnen is in support of increased testing"Steve Sonnen of Truth and Consequences, New Mexico not only supports White’s new stance, but the UFC fan would also be in favor of stretching testing one step further to include both blood testing and random testing."

  Yeah I guess I'm still confused why a NEWS blog would want to do that. Attract attention yes something like "SEX! Now that I've got you attention..." but to purposely confuse readers on two fighters on an issue like this? One who takes a controversial treatment?

Before I opened the thread I knew it was Benson. Had the topic been anything other than drug testing, the title would have clearly said Benson Henderson but UG Blog knew it would make people think Dan. Anyone else that would have posted this would have let you know it was Benson in the title.

  I fully admit my mistake, it was dumb of me to not make sure it was Dan and even then meh probably shouldn't have typed it.   Exposed another dumb vague thread though
