“We’re committed to the health and safety of our athletes and we take it very seriously,” säger UFCs delägare . “We already work closely with athletic commissions to protect our athletes and now we’re taking it one step further. We’re going to test any potential UFC or Strikeforce fighter before finalizing their contract. This shows that we don’t want performance-enhancing drugs in our sport.”
"The health and safety of our athletes is our top priority," säger UFC presidenten Dana White. "We've seen the issues performance-enhancing drugs have caused in other sports and we're going to do everything we can to keep them out of the UFC and Strikeforce. Our athletes are already held to the highest testing standards in all sports by athletic commissions. Our new testing policy for performance-enhancing drugs only further shows how important it is to us to have our athletes competing on a level playing field."Fighters från både UFC och Strikeforce kommer självklart att i fortsättningen fortfarande att testas både före och efter sina fighter samt slumpvis utvalda tillfällen av respektive idrottskommission.
