UFC middleweight Josh Samman joins the show’s PEDs conversation in a wide-ranging interview, reflects on his UFC 181 knockout of the night performance — which came through the adversity of a hamstring injury — and had some realistic advice for up-and-coming fighters.

“I tore my hamstring off my hip bone and I had to get it reattached,” Samman told Majority Draw Radio of preparing for his knockout win over Eddie Gordon. He took the fight  “even though my leg hadn’t healed completely” and is still rehabbing the injury.

“It’s crazy for me that an injury cannot be healed nine months later, but that’s just the nature of it.”

Samman also had loud, direct words about cleaning up the sport from PEDs.

“I’m all for the lifetime ban,” said the Florida-based fighter. “You can come test my blood 24/7, 365, any day of the year. If there is any PEDs ever in my blood, ban me from the sport for the rest of my life. I think that’s one of the most empathic things you can say.”

    Isn’t Samman that TUF competitor with the 3000 zits on his body. That many zits at his age would be caused by severe hormone imbalances and the overproduction of oils. Any ideas out there on what might cause that?

      If anyone is on the juice its Sammmmmmman. The dude has every known sign of PED usage and he drops out of fights and fights every blue moon which gives him all the time in the world needed to cycle off

      He is 2-0 in the UFC and was a part of one of the most talented seasons of TUF, with that being said…. Who are you? Lol, I always love a nobody trying to rain on a talented persons parade.
