UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock admits steroid use, has plan to curtail PED abuse in MMA

Ken Shamrock went on Inside MMA last night and told Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice his concept for eliminating much of the performance enhancing drugs in MMA.

Former UFC super fight champion (the lineal ancestor of today's UFC HW title) Ken Shamrock was on AXS-TV's Inside MMA last night and told hosts Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice about his plan to eliminate, or at least reduce, steroid use in MMA.

Shamrock, who served a suspension after a failed drug test in 2009 but has always previously denied steroid use, admitted that he has used steroids in the past, "but never in the cage" (whatever that means).

Shamrock's plan basically involves writing off the competitors at the top of the sport and instead focusing testing efforts on new guys just starting out. He has no suggestions on how to pay for this proposed dramatic expansion to current testing regimes.
