UFC, Dehydration and Yellow Eyes!
In the past few weeks I have learned one amazing thing: podcasts are incredible! I don't know what took me so long to realize this but I have been listening to some great interviews lately. The most recent one involved Joe Rogan and Jeff Novitzky. Rogan is the outspoken stand-up comic/UFC commentator and Novitzky was just recently hired by the UFC to help clean up the sport. Novitzky has made a career of this and his most notable work includes the BALCO scandal (Barry Bonds and others) and the 2010 investigation of Lance Armstrong. Ridding the UFC of performance enhancers is a daunting task but they hired the right man to do the job!
Notes from the interview:
I do not envy Mr. Novitzky's job with the UFC. He will rid the sport of the most prevalent users and substances. This will help with improving the health of their fighters. It will also show the gaming commissions that the UFC is taking the necessary steps to clean up their sport. On the flip side, they could potentially lose big name fighters to this new legislation. These guys may go on to other promotions or other countries to fight with less stringent testing procedures. I am curious to see how this thing plays out. Kudos to the UFC for taking the unprecedented and being proactive of ridding their sport of all this crap!
