Tim Kennedy Believes 60-70 Percent of Fighters Are Using Performance Enhancing Drugs
Posted by Larry Csonka on 07.10.2014



- Tim Kennedy is hoping to be part of the Nevada State Athleic Commision's (NSAC) enhanced, random drug-testing program for his fight with Yoel Romero. Kennedy had offered to pay for his portion of the testing, estimated at about $45,000 per fight. Romero has never failed drug test. Kennedy recently spoke about the drug testing and drug performance enhancing drug issues in MMA, stating the following…

On The Recent Failures of Fighters in His Division: "They randomly test three dudes and all three fail. All in my weight class. All dudes I could potentially be fighting. I went from just being vocal about drug use, to saying to myself, ‘I have to make a stand about this.' "

On UFC Drug Testing and How Many Could Be Using: "I'm really impressed in the change in both the climate and the UFC's perception of it," Kennedy said. "The UFC is forking over money for testing, so it's been top-driven, which makes me proud to be in the UFC. They are really the only organization that is doing it and it's definitely a step in the right direction. "But the first time [the NSAC] randomly tested people, everybody failed. Imagine what that looks like across 450 athletes. Are we talking 60 or 70 percent? I really believe it's somewhere in that range of fighters that are using."
