UFC Removes Weed from List of Banned Substances

However, a fighter can be penalized if the UFC is able to prove he used weed as a “performance-enhancing drug,” the USADA reveals.

Would it be more entertaining to watch two fighters go toe-to-toe when they’re high? Would you say weed enhances your performance?
