Bocek cited rampant PED use in the sport, but also women's MMA:</p>
"The direction of MMA is they're pushing the female-MMA - Ronda (Rousey) technically the pound-for-pound best fighter," Bocek told The MMA Hour. "We'll put experienced, accomplished male MMA fighters on undercards but we'll put females who started training last year in the co-main event. That direction was part of the persuasion that forced me to get out."
"It is difficult for an elite female MMA fighter to get in (the UFC), but if she has some decent skills and some cool bikini shots then she can get in."
