Drysdale entered the UFC with a reputation as one of the finest grapplers out there, transitioning his success from the tournament scene into a 6-0 run as a Mixed Martial Artist. He may exit it with a very different tag attached to his name. The 32-year old was popped by the Nevada Athletic Commission for an elevated testosterone level when applying for a license to compete (a ridiculous 19:1 ratio). While Drysdale was returning from an injury and may have attempted to rush the process, coming in dirty for your debut with a number that would even make Chael Sonnen scoff is definitely not conducive to a long stint in the Octagon.
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from a few fighters looking to change divisions to fallout from recent events to a couple of clashes booked for the coming weeks/months.
