UFC drug testing press conference LIVE video stream

***UPDATE:

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold a special media press conference today (Weds., Feb. 18, 2015) inside the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The live video stream beings promptly at 1 p.m. ET in the embedded player above (click here for the text updates and live blog).

On hand will be UFC President Dana White, along with UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, who are expected to address the recent rash of failed drug tests under the ZUFFA banner. Those include light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones (cocaine), former middleweight champion Anderson Silva (steroids), and welterweight attraction Nick Diaz (marijuana), among others.

The world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion implemented its own out-of-competition drug testing just last year; however, they "fucked it up" and blamed the legal team (seriously) in the wake of the Cung Le fiasco. Since then, the problem got worse, instead of better.

Now it's time to find out what they plan to do about it.
