If you don’t know Victor Conte, here is an excerpt from his Wikipedia entry:

he entered guilty pleas in July 2005 to one count of conspiracy to distribute steroids and a second count of laundering a portion of a check, he was sentenced in October to spend four months in prison and another four on house arrest.

In December 2004, he participated in an interview with Martin Bashir on ABC’s 20/20 program, where he admitted to running doping programs, which have broken Olympic records, as well as revealing that: “The whole history of the games is just full of corruption, cover-up, performance-enhancing drug use.”

    I had no idea how informed Mr. Conte is about these subjects (he’s not your average drug runner). It would be interesting to talk to some of the chemists/biochemists and physicians he might have worked with as well. Not sure how much Rogan was facilitating discussion – I get the feeling he could have added in a lot more about the tendencies of MMA athletes.
