- UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has been outspoken on PED users in the past, as well as her admiration of former champion Anderson Silva. However, after Silva's multiple drug test failures, it appears the uber-popular Rousey doesn't feel the same way these days.
"It's so ingrained in my psyche. I don't think I could ever look at anyone the same ever again after they do that," Rousey said to MMA Junkie this week.
Rousey was randomly drug tested last week ahead of her UFC 184 main event with undefeated Cat Zingano, which she passed. Wrestling Inc will have full live coverage of UFC 184 next Saturday.
- The UFC Fight Night 61 weigh ins are complete, and all 24 fighters made their mark. The only hiccup was the fact that Anthony Waldburger's fight with Wendell Oliveira was cancelled after Waldburger fainted while cutting weight. A similar incident happened with Renan Barao ahead of UFC 177.
