It’s now been a year since the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency began testing UFC fighters. Since then, the MMA community has seen numerous fighters popped for both in competition, and out-of-competition, anti-doping violations.

Earlier this month a list was released of the fighters most tested by USADA in the first year of the program. Tied for first were UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm.

Now, ahead of Holm’s UFC Chicago scrap against Valentina Shevchenko, the former champ has revealed that she is now the most tested fighter after being tested for the 14th time out-of-competition.

She spoke at a media scrum:

“If I needed the help, it would kind of be a mental thing that I didn’t believe in myself, and that’s why I needed to use something. For me it’s never been something that I thought to do. Also, it keeps stress off of me, I don’t have to worry about it when they show up on my doorstep for a drug test at 6 a.m., because Friday was number 14 by the way.”

She added in:

“It’s the most.”
