does anyone know if they drug test in ufc, pride, etc

some of the physiques in these competitions look near bodybuilder level. yet they still manage to retain awesome fitness and conditioning. surely this all cant be done naturaly. are they subjected to any tests or is it a free for all?

    To my knowledge they are tested. As I often read articles such as 'so and so has been caught using steriods' or something like that. It is against the ruled to used banned substances, and they seem to find out who are the ones who use them. So they must test somehow.

    Maybe someone more knowlegable can embelish for you....

    first off, PRIDE is dead :( being bought by UFC.

    No, PRIDE didn't test for roids. However, when they had shows in the states (there were a few) they did drug testing.

    and yes, they do test for roids in UFC.

    I wonder if it is random testing or compulsory testing, just out for interest.

    Interestingly Hoyce Gracie has just been caught.

    Phil Baroni has got to have the best physique in the ufc, would love to have his shape
