BELLATOR DRUG TEST FAIL?
It seems like every other day we are hearing from some disgruntled current or former Bellator fighter about something fishy/shady they are doing/have done. Recently Ben Askren dropped a bomb on Twitter regarding Bellator’s Drug Testing, more specifically, their lack of testing.
The discerning MMA fan realizes that many of Bellator’s fights take place on Tribal Lands, the land of no commission’s or oversight in most cases. With no ruling body, it’s up to Bellator if they want to test or not, and, why would you want to test if you don’t have to and nobody has realized it yet.
The Cat’s out of the bag now, will Bellator respond with heavy testin? Probably not, since they haven’t really responded. No surprise.
If you are just getting into the fight game, a promotion that schedules the majority of it’s events on Tribal Lands, with no Athletic Commission oversight and a increasingly bad track record of screwing fighters might not be your best choice. However, if you are a fighter who is drugged to the gills on any given day, then you might want to make a call to Bellator right now, yes, right NOW!
