Johnson: Talent beats drugs everytime


News broke yesterday that former flyweight title challenger Ali Baugitinov tested positive for a banned substance was suspended by the UFC for a full year.

The Russian fighter tested positive after his decision loss to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, who commented on the situation yesterday:

"I'm disappointed to hear that Bagautinov tested positive for EPO," Johnson told after hearing of the failed test.

"That's very unfortunate news. But the moral of this story is that I proved on June 14 that you don't need to cheat, you don't need PEDs to be a champion. I am proud to be a clean champion and I believe that talent will beat drugs every time out, just like it did last month in Vancouver."
