Dong Hyun Kim – “90% of UFC fighters are on PED’s”
Dong Hyun Kim spoke to Korean media outlet Mfight about the use of performance enhancing drugs in the UFC:
“While a lot of people believe doping tests work, just like a breathalyzer test you can get away with it by just controlling timing. Most of the steroids user just cycle and get by the tests. It’s almost like other athletes look down on you as an idiot if you don’t do steroids. It’s like non-users are bicyclists while steroid users are racing with motorcycles. But I am one of those “idiots” that don’t use performance enhancers. I would say 90% of UFC fighters use performance enhancers.”
That’s a pretty large percentage! In the past there has been people come out and suggest that there may be up to 50% of fighters cycling drugs. It’s something we will never be able to put a number to, but this is an interesting statistic coming from someone who is currently fighting for the UFC.
