Just wondering. Probably a stupid question, but it might take the edge off.

Lol if you have anything in the locker room other than water, they’ll give you the boot real quick.

Why the fuck would you want a shot before the most physical test of your life?

Calming effect on nerves for some.

I was corner man at a fight in Missouri and saw a fighter snort something I thought might have been cocaine.
I can see that you could get away with it, if you got caught though your not only going to get booted your probably going to get suspended by the AC.

No clue why you would want to, do they test for it? I don’t think so. 

However when I cornered on a ufc card (rda vs Usman) there’s no way between the athletic commission and the ufc handlers that your doing anything like that without pulling some underhanded stuff. They supply your water in their own containers and pretty much have someone watching you from the time you show up until the doctor sees you after the fight.

Nick Diaz fought Silva while getting high before in the MGM bathroom. A guy like Cowboy though, he drinks like everyday but still has decipline to not fight even with one beer. When it comes to training camp, lots of dudes get high.

The video was removed so not sure if there is a source still; but legendary dan Quinn snorted a bunch of stevia and took a bunch of hits off a marijuana pipe as he walked out to the fight all in film.  He won the fight and started yelling I smoke pot and eat like a fucking pig everyday and i still won or something crazy.

I fought amateur in Missouri and one of my opponents was doing coke in the locker room before one of my fights. One of my buddies was in his locker room and let me know after the fight. It didn't really bother me, but it was ironic that his nose wouldn't stop bleeding after the fight lol.

I was working a fight in so cal and one of the fighters showed up for doc inspection day of the fight, clearly, with a few in his system. Needless to say, his fight was pulled right quick.
