He said, “You know people taking drugs that stems from insecurity and fears. Fear that they won’t make weight, fear that they won’t be in shape, fear that they don’t hit hard enough, or whatever it may be. But I trust and believe in the system we have in place and I’m sure it’ll be a level playing field come fight night.”
