"I think everybody is doing whatever they can to get an edge on their opponent, no matter what, be it taking anything whether it's illegal or legal. Is it working? I don't really know. I don't think so. I wouldn't know (a percentage of fighters using PEDs) and even if I did I wouldn't say even if I did. ... I'm a big proponent of 'What happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.' I'm no snitch. But I fought when there wasn't regulatory bodies, and I fought guys who were way jacked to the gills (on steroids). I never cared – I just fought them anyways. I don't care what pill you take or what shot or what new supplement or what diet you do. There's only so much of anything that can really ever help you, and the rest of it is whether you've got it or you don't."
Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight Josh Barnett, recently named as one of the eight participants in the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, doesn't like to air his (or anyone else's) dirty laundry in public. "The Babyface Assassin" insists he's never taken steroids despite failing a test for performance enhancing drugs (PED's) on three separate occasions. Can he convince the court of public opinion that his talent, not his pharmacist, is the driving force behind his mixed martial arts success? Or will he find himself in over his head against the punching power of Brett "The Grim" Rogers in the opening round of the Strikeforce tournament?
