The greatest UFC story never told involves Mike Goldberg  

In 2005, the UFC heavyweight Champion was paid $18,000 to show and $18,00p to win. Chael was paid $2,000. Vince McMahon called Mike Goldberg $100,000 to no-show the event to sabotage the UFC. Here's what happened next.

Who is WADA and why are they making things so difficult?  

Here's the background - – Cyborg receives offer in November for a title fight 8 weeks away at 145lbs. She turns it down saying not enough time to make weight. – Cyborg receives offer to fight in Brooklyn, 11 weeks before the proposed event date and turns that down as well, again citing weight cut reasons. – Cyborg is randomly drug tested by USADA on 12/5 – Cyborg confirms via social media she had turned down fights, and says she told UFC to wait for March and she will fight. – Cyborg is then offered another fight (opponent and date unknown) which she just flat out turned down, no reason cited. – Public is notified on 12/22 that Cyborg has been flagged by USADA for potential doping reason. – Cyborg comes out and says USADA violation is due to Doctor prescribed “spironolactone”, a banned substance.
