Krzysztof Soszynski, an UFC fighter, claims that at least 85% of fighters use banned substances. To make the matter worse, his number for top fighters is at 95%-96%.
Here are some of his quotes:
I would definitely say somewhere in the percentage of 85 percent of guys are definitely using, especially the guys who can afford it are definitely using. I would even go as high as 95 to 96 percent of the top level athletes that are definitely using it. You can clearly see it. I even had someone talk to me about stem cell injections. You're looking at stuff like EPO, and at least five or six different counterfeit drugs out there that people are using and they're not even detectable in the body. It's just amazing to me how far athletes are willing to go to make their mark in this sportWhile I think his number is sky high and there is no way at this moment to confirm whether his numbers are accurate, but it wouldn't surprise me if his numbers are true that the vast majority of the MMA fighters use some banned substances in some way. Personally, I think fighters should be upright and fight with their true ability instead of using illegal substances. I hate cheaters.If there's a substance you can take out there that's going to make you bigger, stronger, more explosive, going to help you train harder, going to help you train longer, and it's going to help with your recovery as well, and you know if you take it the right way and follow the right instructions, you'll never get caught for it, wouldn't you take it
