Video: Rampage Jackson and other MMA stars react to UFC 153 drug test failures

Dave Herman and Stephan Bonnar tested positive for banned substances after they competed at UFC 153 last month in Rio. Here's what some of their peers are saying (via FightHub.tv) about the unfortunate situation.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flunked two of its UFC 153: "Silva vs. Bonnar" main card fighters following their performances back on Oct. 13, 2012 in Brazil, after Dave Herman and Stephan Bonnar tested positive for banned substances.

Blame it on Rio.

"Pee Wee" was popped for marijuana not long after he was popped and dropped by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. "The American Psycho" pissed hot for Drostanolone, which did little to prevent him from getting pounded out by hometown hero Anderson Silva.

See the promotion's official statement here.

UFC heavyweight Travis Browne was not surprised. Neither was former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson, though both fighters took a softer stance on Herman than they did Bonnar. Former Bellator lightweight kingpin Eddie Alvarez?

He's not going to judge.

Ed Soares didn't have much to say about the "unfortunate" situation, but I know mixed martial arts (MMA) fans will. So, let's hear it, Maniacs. Is it time to start ramping up penalties for fighters who abuse drugs? Or should we just take Phil Baroni's advice and let them enhance in any way they can?
