BJ Penn on MMA Drug Testing: Its an IQ test not a drug test

Posted: Updated:

BJ Penn on MMA Drug Testing: "It's an IQ test not a drug test."  The former two-division champion said the use of performance-enhancing drugs is widespread.  

 "If you say you're going to be drug tested in two months, you just have to be smart enough to get it out of your system," Penn said.

Considered one of the most dominant lightweight champions of all time, Penn explained his reluctance to drop back down to 155.  Saying, "Something is telling me inside, ‘You got to do this, you got to fight at 170.'"

Penn promised to be in great shape for his pending bout against Rory MacDonald and explained how his desire to cement his legacy as one of the greatest fighters ever motivated him back to the cage after a brief retirement.
