Introducing UFC Nostradamus (100 SCR Contest)
Yesterday I got all excited when I saw Scorum team's question about what sports community would like to see next on ScorumBet. I got all tingly when the idea that we could see MMA on ScorumBet passed my mind. There are so many good fights lined up in the near future and I can't wait until I will have a chance to wager my SCRs on them! Source So while we are waiting for that exciting day I decided to create a contest for MMA fans! UFC Nostradamus This will be a long term contest with 5 big UFC events from which you will have a chance to pick your winners. Contest's rules:Every participant has a 10 000 u.

The only requirement is to place at least 5 bets on 5 different fights with at least 1000 u. to be eligible to win the contest.The participant with the biggest bankroll at the end of the contest will win the contest and 100 SCR (I will be participating too, so you will have to beat me if you want to take my dinero :)) Event #1 - UFC Fight Night <Cejudo vs Dillashaw> Bellow are the fights you can choose from today's UFC card.

MMA Drug Testing- The policy Change Question.
With the recent Jon Jones drug testing controversy, many are looking to the drug testing methods and policies in MMA. The concern in the returned test was "pulsing" of drugs, and it makes sense to look at the MMA drug testing requirements for clarity. In September of 2018, the USADA changed its policy regarding how a fighter can participate in fighting after a positive test result. The USADA will provisionally suspend a fighter who fails a test, but will keep the details and failed result private until it is absolutely validated. Fighters like Junior Dos Santos who received a fake positive suffered when their results were called out. This new policy maintains the "innocent until proven guilty" policy that enforces fairness. In my opinion, the September 2018 policy revision is very fair. The results must be kept private until they can be validated. Lab results can be sent to another lab for validation. What is your take? Is drug use a problem in MMA?
