    Has there been any word on any IOC decision to reinstate Joe Warren to competition?

    I heard somewhere he was done with wrestling because of the suspension and moving into MMA. Not sure if that's correct though.

    I read the same thing. It is a shame for US wrestling because I think he was the only we had that could have been classified as a Gold Medal Favorite.

    Joe was in NYC a few weeks ago trying to work on reducing the 2 year ban (not sure if he was successful though). He said he has been training with Team Quest in MMA, so I wish him the greatest of success until he can return to the wrestling mat.

    I understand a rule is a rule but IMO testing should be done on performance "enhancers"
    A year, two year or three year ban is a bit harsh seeing how in a court of law you would only be subjected to a $100.00 fine. Warren is a beast and it's too bad poor decision making will keep him out of the Olympics

    Do you think he will give up the grass in MMA after "having learned his lesson"?

    Well, the one USAW handed down was 1 year.. I also heard the MMA rumor.

    I don't believe they even test for MJ so he should be fine. Regardless, pot or not, he was a stud at greco.

    Big, Your Russian wrestlers partake in some drug usage so I wouldn't pick on the one American pot head.
