Gordon Ryan has recently shared his stance on PED testing in grappling tournaments; claiming that, if they were to be introduced into grappling events individually, they would be destroying those events.
Because of that, there is only one solution:
… That means you have to be competing natural for those specific events where everyone else in the sport can be on PEDs.
If USADA comes into just one organization, it’s gonna pretty much crush that organization and athletes will just not compete in that organization.
I definitely think USADA coming in would have to be across the board rather than just one organization or another.
And, well, if that were to happen – Ryan would love to compete against all of his opponents natural!
Why? Read on:
If USADA did come in and start testing across the board, I would love to actually compete against all of my opponents natural.
Because the only way that they survive for any amount of time is they just juice their way out of things for 10 minutes until they get tired.
If they didn’t have the physicality, the match would be twice as easy.
The only reason they can survive against me, they’re so physically strong I have to tire them out first and then I can submit them.
