Default Why Steriods should be legal in MMA

Look at all the recent fighters who have have tested positive for steroids...

Stephan Bonner --> lost to Forrest Griffin

Vitor Belfort --> lost to Dan Henderson

Pawel Nastula --> lost to Josh Barrnett

Kit Cope --> lost to Rob McCullough

Phil Baroni --> Lost to Frank Shamrock

Kevin Randleman (provided fake urine so may have been using steriods) --> lost to Mauricio Rua

Jorge Ortiz --> lost to Jesse Taylor

Johnny Morton --> lost to Bernard Ackah

The only person to win on Steroids has been Royce Gracie and Shawn Sherk but his opponent was using too.

Looks like Steroids aren't a performance enhancer, but instead a performance de-enhancer.

The only ones to get caught using..recently.

May I remind you of.........lot's of "juicy" former champs.....

Mark Kerr, Mark Coleman, Josh Barnett, Wanderlei Silva, Fujita, Arona, and the coup de grace, Cro Cop's miraculous weight gain after leaving K1,

Vovchanchyn, Fedor and Sakuraba seem clean but only one out three has a spotless record.

Perhaps people on steroids don't focus enough on technique figuring that strength will overcome. Or perhaps it shows that technique is far more important than strength.
