Black House MMA Head Says Positive Drug Tests Aren't a Reflection On Them
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 08.22.2014



Black House MMA head Ed Soares spoke with MMAjunkie about the positive drug tests by his fighters Kevin Casey and Brian Ortega, both of whom tested positive for the steroid drostanolone in recent fights (UFC 175 and UFC on FOX 12, respectively). Check out the highlights:

On people suggesting a link through Black House: "It's not fair, because let's put how many other people were from that situation that fought clean. It's not what it looks like."

On Casey and Ortega: "They did it, and they have to deal with it."

On Ortega's issue: "I think Brian was supposed to fight in Brazil, and they canceled a week before the fight, and he was super bummed and gained weight, and (the UFC) issued him a fight four or five weeks before, and he maybe was overweight and tried to figure something out. I don't know what these things do, but he figured out something to cut weight. I didn't get in to an in-depth talk; I was more or less comforting him because he was just so down."

On the gym's record: "Out of all the times of managing guys, I think we've only had this happen three times, and it just happened to be two in a one month period."

On if he'll expel the two fighters: "People make mistakes, and one thing I told him was that I'm bummed that he did it, but I'm not going to turn my back on him. Hopefully he learned from this process."
