LAS VEGAS — A retired athlete will now have an increased barrier of entry back into the UFC, but those returning after being released will gain some leniency.

A fighter who has retired or left the UFC under his or her own accord will not be able to compete again for the promotion until he or she is entered into the USADA drug-testing pool for six months, per changes to the UFC anti-doping policy made available to MMA Fighting on Thursday. Previously, the rule had been a four-month period in the testing pool before an athlete could return to the Octagon.

Oh for fuck's sake people...GET IT RIGHT!
These people are so fucking dumb: The amount of time is not the problem, randomly throwing out the rule based on a provision within the rule is the problem. If your dumb asses hadn't let Brock Lesner's obviously juiced up ass fight without properly testing him first there wouldn't be any reason to rewrite a rule that was fine to begin with. I swear to god the people in charge are clueless. I really feel like they are making decisions based on the jump to conclusions mat from Office Space.
