This might be too burdensome for smaller gyms, and PEDs might be less of an issue in the minor leagues, but at the UFC level there should be no problem. If a house shows a pattern of trying to game the system they would stand a chance of having their certification pulled, this would provide an incentive for everyone to help everyone else stay kosher.
Well, I was working on a response to this, but got distracted by the MMA Hour coming on. Coincidentally, one of Ariel's guests was Victor Conte (of BALCO infamy), who is now a very vocal advocate of increasing PED testing. He had some really interesting points to make, so rather than throwing out my thoughts half-cocked, I'll wait for MMAFighting.com to publish their summation of his interview & then post that here for y'all.

I doubt that you are, but I'd guess y'all are the slim minority. I'd assume most of the rest of us object to steroids because a) they're illegal, b) they're dangerous, or c) a combination of the two. For me, it's primarily b), because I believe a) to be a cause of b) (i.e. they're illegal because they're dangerous).
