Fertitta would not even specify what he meant by "all of these guys." Will the promotion seek to have just the participants in every championship fight randomly tested? Or will the enhanced program extend even beyond that to, say, the main eventers on every card? "Sometimes these things take a little time to actually get put in place where you can effectively manage it," he said. "Sometimes the media just wants everything to happen yesterday. We're doing it. It's all starting to happen now."
