UFC Quick Quote: Fighters who want stricter drug testing should wear an apron and stay on the couch with the women

But no word on what the women should do if they, in fact, demand stricter drug testing.

Ethan Miller

"It's a fight goddamn it. If you're gonna fight, fight. Who cares what the guy's taking, you know? It doesn't matter. Get in there and fight. Look, if you're gonna demand testing, you're not a fighter. That's all there is to it. You know, if you're gonna demand testing, you're gonna demand the goddamn government to take care of your opponent for you, you know, that's (expletive). You're not a fighter. Stay on the couch with the women. Put on an apron and make some cookies, goddamn it. If you're a fighter, you don't care."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre took a leave of absence from mixed martial arts (MMA), partly due to inadequate drug testing. So too, did former UFC middleweight Brian Stann, who was concerned about his health when facing guys he suspected of being on performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). As it turns out, they're not "real" fighters and did the right thing by walking away, and now "Rush" and the "All American" can complete their transformation by putting on an apron and sitting on the couch with the women. That's according to retired UFC and PRIDE veteran Don Frye (via Submission Radio), who doesn't understand why today's generation is so hung up on trivial matters like drug testing, echoing the sentiment from Phil Baroni that fighters should be allowed to do whatever the hell they want, even shoot themselves full of steroids. Any toughies out there in the peanut gallery buying what "The Predator" is selling?
