On the latest episode of Inside MMA, host Bas Rutten chaired a discussion of the situation with guests Joe Rogan, Michael Schiavello, and Josh Barnett.

    I don't mean to sound disrespectful toward Bas, he is almost a deity of our sport and is a tremendous athlete. However, Bas himself did test positive for a banned substance the last time he fought whereas Alistair did not. He just tested positive for elevated testosterone levels. I really don't believe Bas has any right to disrespect any fighter to come up with an abnormal drug test especially when he got caught USING SYNTHETIC HEROIN and it was proven against him.

    pain killers also can affect the result of a fight, can`t they?

    I have huge respect for all pro athletes,
    but I feel like Bas Rutten is talking not quiet sincerely.
    In fact, looks like he feels jealous to Alistair`s success
    (of course, there are _also_ questions about AO, but it isn`t really the time for big words yet)...
