Could’ve been a great Ozymandias moment there. “When will testing begin?”–“it already has”–cut to dudes peeing in cups around the world. — Coach (@CMPunk) June 3, 2015
Fuck the cheaters I hope they all get caught #UFC

I know some are playing the lack of union/independent contractor angle, but I’m all for this new drug testing. Bravo. — Cody Gibson (@TheRenegade559) June 3, 2015
