Ben Askren, the reigning Bellator MMA welterweight champion, recently sounded off on an article regarding Bellator’s drug testing procedures.
Askren, a former Olympic wrestler who underwent VADA testing on his own before a recent fight, stated that “Just read the article on why Bellator fighters don’t fail drug tests. Hard to fail a test when you don’t take it. Only been tested once!”
He added that he thought the only commission that tested him was Pennsylvania in 2010, saying, “Don’t really care what we aren’t tested (because) cheaters will cheat no matter what! Just thought the articles was really silly.”
The article in question was one written and posted on BJPenn.com concerning why Bellator fighters do no fail tests.
Askren recently talked with MMAFrenzy.com about his decision to enter into the world of MMA.
