So bear with me here...
We all saw the Barnett VS Rizzo fight. As a relative new comer to the sport I had heard of Barnett, but never seen him fight.
I have to admit the first thing that sprung into my mind when he came walking to the ring was not "WOW, this dude is jacked! He looks like a beast; he might even be on the 'roids!"
In fact, it was quite the opposite and went something along the lines of "WOW, this dude looks kind of out of shape for a legend; beer gut, man tits, kinda looks like Tim Sylvia’s physique when he was made to stop taking the 'roids...oh well, Fedor looks kinda out of shape and he's an animal, lets give this guy a chance."
To the left is a picture from the weigh-in at Josh's latest fight against Gilbert Yvel. Again, you don't look at this man and think "This is man at his physical peak".
My only point of reference for steroid abusers are Sean Sherk and Tim Sylvia, who when they were caught both looked in tremendous physical condition.
I know what you’re going to say; “He's done it before! He was caught using roids back in the day and kicked out the UFC!” And you are right. But don't you see, that’s why it's the perfect crime!
No one is going to question when someone who tested positive for steroids in the past tests positive again. Why would you??
My challenge to you is this; Go on Google and find a picture of Barnett when he was on the roids and compare it to the Barnett that you saw against Rizzo and see in the picture here...can you hear the alarm bells?
Okay, I see you are starting to bite. You see I have at least some basis, but now you’re screaming at me, “Kieran, I don’t understand, WHO would do such a thing? And WHY?”.
Allow me to divulge....
As Affliction crumbles into the dust, humbly returning to the UFC as a mere sponsor of T-shirts and nothing more. One man becomes open for signing.
One man who is considered by many to be the best MMA heavyweight and pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
His options are slim, his morals high but in his hands lays the potential for the biggest fight EVER in the history of MMA.
And who do you think is going to be cashing in?
Brock VS Fedor will be the biggest fight ever.
This you cannot question.
It will sell the most PPVs in UFC history and will break records on the gate, making millions for the UFC and the "White Administration."
So you do the math, fill in the blanks. Fedor said he had no intention of signing with the UFC and why would he? He had a good spot on Affliction and was making money.
Now, he really doesn't have that many options and although he says money is not the issue here, with the amount that Dana White is about to throw at him I predict a relatively speedy turn around. The signing and the fight will be announced within the next three months.
So let’s look back at this conspiracy...
Could Dana White rig the test? .... YES
Would Dana White rig the test? .... Probably
Did Dana White rig the drug test in order to put on the biggest fight in MMA history, crush a competitor and make millions of dollars....?
