Much like his countryman Lyoto Machida, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo doesn't seem to have much of an issue fighting PED users. Speaking with Combate, Aldo explains that while he recognizes the downside of performance enhancing drugs in fighting, he can certainly see where exceptions could be made. "From a sportive standpoint, we try to look it with good eyes," said Aldo. "I don't see any problems.

Fresh off his stoppage win over Antonio Silva Feb. 22 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is looking for a pair of trilogy fights. Mir mentioned a potential bout with fellow former champion Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira at the event's post-fight press conference, but it sounds like a rubber match with Brock Lesnar is much higher up on his wish list. "I think I would crush [Lesnar] standing up now," Mir told The Fight Corner. "I think that on the ground and stuff, I've w read news >>

Professional fighters sure do seem to draw an inordinate amount of online abuse. Yet, somehow, each morning, we don't all of a sudden awake to an avalanche of videos of pro fighters using their skills to hurt people. Former UFC and Bellator veteran Josh Neer decided to buck that trend Monday when he posted a video of himself "sparring" a now former gym member at Iowa's RoundKick Gym. In the video, which can be seen here, Neer can be seen slamming his elbow into a crumpled figure not once, not tw read news >>

"I know for a fact I've fought guys on PEDs," Ellenberger told Rick Lee. "I've had guys tell me that after the fight. I won't say any names but you can tell. You can tell when you clinch up with somebody. Probably the biggest test is by the way the read news >>

Having already found himself on the business end of Vitor Belfort's spinning head kick, you can hardly blame UFC middleweight contender Luke Rockhold for scrutinizing his future opponents. Rockhold has been one of the UFC's most outspoken proponents for stepping up its initiative to crack down on performance enhancing drugs, something the promotion took major steps into implementing Wednesday. Due to face Lyoto Machida Apr. 18 in the main event at UFC on FOX 15 in Newark, New Jersey, Rockhold ci read news >>

A former patient of the since-banned testosterone replacement therapy [TRT], Mir now believes the treatment only served as a stop gap helping to push through his larger issues. "TRT was patchwork - it was putting a Band-Aid on the problem," Mir told MMA Junkie. "I went to a medical doctor, but I wasn't searching out TRT.
