Default Ontario Athletic Commission doesn't even know which PEDs are illegal for UFC 165



From MiddleEasy.com (by Zues):

It's wildly known that drug tests are virtually non-existent in Canada, which led Nick Diaz to claim Georges St. Pierre consistently fights there because he's on 'plenty steroids.' Well he was right in the sense that the Ontario Athletic Commission doesn't test fighters since there's no law in the Ontario Athletics Control Act Regulation that requires the commission to perform mandatory drug tests. The other stuff Diaz said, egh we're not so sure about.

British Columbia lawyer @erikmagraken wrote a recent article regarding the lack of drug testing that will be administered for UFC 165. Today he received correspondence from the OAC stating that although they will not be testing for performance enhancing drugs at UFC 165, they will rely on UFC to give them samples -- however they don't even know what they're testing for.
Quote:
Ontario’s Office of the Athletics Commissioner advises me that “UFC’s contract with fighters provides for random drug testing at events. At UFC 165, an OAC physician will oversee the collection of samples for the tests.” I have asked the AC’s office for a copy of the contractual clause triggering the commission’s right to test but they are not prepared to release this.

Perhaps more interestingly, I asked which drugs will be against the rules for UFC 165 to which the OAC responds “The OAC does not require drug testing of fighters, and does not have a list of prohibited drugs. Information regarding the drugs that the UFC is testing for would have to be obtained from the promoter.
So let's recap here. Fighters at UFC 165 may or may not be drug tested depending on a clause that may or may not exist between the OAC and UFC, and the drugs that fighters may or may not be tested for isn't even understood by the actual testers. Unfortunately we can't provide life jackets to save you from drowning in this nonsense. You're on your own.

Funny thing is, Steroids aren't even illegal in most countries. You can buy them without a prescription. I'm not sure about Canada but Mexico and most other countries sell them over the counter. That might be part of why testing is so slack in the other countries. They don't see steroids as a big deal.
