For the first time in UFC history two fighters have agreed to voluntary, random drug screening which will be performed during the 8-week lead up to their fight.
BJ Penn and Rory MacDonald have both enlisted into the VADA program.
VADA released news of Rory’s enrollment today:
This letter is to advise the Mixed Martial Arts LLC that Rory MacDonald is a participant in the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) program. He is subject to randomly-selected testing for performance enhancing drugs and methods through September 22, 2012.
We will keep the MMA LLC apprised of test results. Do not hesitate to contact me or VADA’s Chief Legal Counsel, Ryan Connolly, if you have questions or concerns.
