UFC’s Tom Aspinall claims PED testing is the reason for why Brazilian guys are no longer dominating UFC

Over the history of the UFC there has been a number of dominant Champions. Among them are Alex Pereira, Deiveson Figueiredo, Charles Oliveira, Fabrício Werdum, Maurício Rua, Glover Teixeira, Murilo Bustamante, Anderson Silva, Rafael dos Anjos, José Aldo, Renan Barão, Cris Cyborg, Amanda Nunes and Jessica Andrade.

Along with US and Russia, Brazil is a major powerhouse when it comes to mixed martial arts. But this is also a result of the fact that martial arts are deeply ingrained in the culture.

Brazilian domination is no longer as strong as it once was in leading MMA promotions. Brazil used to have champions in every category in the UFC.

Tom Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett recently explored what caused the Brazilian UFC athlete’s demise on a podcast.

Paddy Pimblett recently defeated Jared Gordon in a controversial match at UFC 282. Furthermore, he is getting a lot of flak from viewers all around the world because of the way he won. However, it hasn’t stopped him from carrying on with his customary schedule of producing content for his followers.

UFC heavyweight Tom Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett recently had a talk about the UFC and the use of PEDs in MMA.

Aspinall discussed how it is becoming more and harder for Brazilians to get into the UFC and succeed there. He believed that the UFC’s stringent testing procedures are what is holding them back.

Pimblett said, “Or they either get to the UFC and start gassing in three rounds and they don’t perform.”

Aspinall then adds: “There used to be a lot of Brazilian Champions before they brought this USADA stuff in properly…“

Along with talking about Brazilian athletes failing USADA tests, they also mention TJ Dillashaw’s most recent match. The two referred to him as another “Juice Head.”

Aljamain Sterling and Dillashaw’s match created great controversy. Pimblett said, “I do. I give him his due … TJ Dillashaw probably went into that fight thinking. I’ll never get another title shot again, I need to do this fight. So I say hat’s off to him.”
