Damned if they don't, damned if they do. That's the feeling I had at the conclusion of Wednesday's Ultimate Fighting Championship news conference on performance-enhancing drugs. For years, observers of mixed martial arts have scoffed at the UFC's seemingly lackadaisical efforts to control PEDs. Rightly so. While it was never an official stance, it felt like the promotion didn't care so much about PEDs in mixed martial arts unless it affected their bottom line.

Mixed martial arts is a chaotic sport where anything can and usually does happen. The leadup to the UFC's return to Denver for Fight Night 60 was a prime example of how hectic things can get at the highest level of the sport, as injury and circumstance battered the event's lineup as fight night approached. The card's original main event tilt between Matt Brown and Tarec Saffiedine was scrapped when the Belgian striker fell out with injury, and rather than find "The Immortal" a replacement bout, read news >>

The Bellator MMA president said he had a discussion with California State Athletic Commission executive director Andy Foster on Friday before Bellator 133 here at SaveMart Center on the campus of Fresno State University. And afterward, he was left unsure if there was truly an epidemic in the sport as many have speculated. "There's hundreds read news >>
