Ben Askren offers up a very simple explanation for that. Bellator hardly ever drug tests.

“Just read the article on why Bellator fighters don’t fail drug tests,” Askren tweeted Sunday. “Hard to fail a test when you don’t take it. Only been tested once!

“Don’t really care that we aren’t tested bc cheaters will cheat no matter what! Just thought the articles was really silly.”

read entire article...

Askren definitely didn't pull any punches on that, goddamn. I've never been a fan of the guy, but props to him for telling it like it is here.

^I agree. Bellator slowly seems to be having fighters come out as not really happy with Bellator. It'll be interesting to see how Askrens comments play out.

Pitbull3744 - I can see someone is looking to start shit with Bellator so they get fired and kiss Dana's ass at the same time by shit talking Bellator. Smart move Askren not as dumb as u looks. Phone Post 3.0

I don't fully agree with that. Askren has always been anti-P.E.D's and to the best of my knowledge is the only Mixed Martial Artist to have signed up for VADA testing. I commend his stance and the fact that he is not afraid to speak out in public.

But their 170 champ has only been tested once. Thats hardly in line with suggesting organizations outside the UFC should test every week.

We are watching the first MMA promotion collapse under the weight of it's own bad decisions and the accelerant of social media.

For the record, Askren has fought for Bellator 8 times, 4 times as Champion, and has been tested once by a commission, probably the Pennsylvania one.

I didn't look at it that way but you make a great point! More than one way to skin a cat?

No one constantly tests their fighters, but most commissions at least test championship fights and main events. For a long-time champion like Askren to have only been tested once speaks volumes about how much Bellator & Viacom care about drug testing.

Well played Mr Askren, well played.

1. Piss of boss

2. Make Dana laugh

 

Could end up getting him out so he can be in the UFC, or it could backfire and Bellator could work very very hard to never let him leave haha.
