...and the person they would look to as the one who had successfully managed to become dominant by sheer work is Matt Hughes...proof that it CAN be done without help
It's very simple to explain.
People see one of the biggest names in the sport and the guy who is supposedly one of the top P4P fighters in the world, and then it comes out that he's nothing but a roid cheat. That reflects poorly on the entire sport, and I know you understand that concept.
You are trying to act as if people would just jump up and down and say "YAY everybody, see how awesome Matt Hughes is?".... When in reality they would be saying, "See, I wouldn't doubt if they are all on drugs". It really offers no positive other than to see the downfall of a person that a lot of us just don't like for one reason or another.
As much crap as Sonnen talked that got under my skin as a fan, I still wasn't cheering for him to end up looking like an even bigger jack-ass and tarnish what was clearly the fight of the year in 2010, but sadly he did just that.
