UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been one of the most tested athletes in the UFC by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
With 14 tests done by USADA, “The Notorious” says that it is a good thing for the sport of mixed martial arts.
“I’m happy to be tested,” said McGregor on Friday during the UFC 202 media call (transcribed by MMA Junkie). “The boy is not far wrong, they (expletive) all are on steroids. So it is (expletive) up. The co-main and the main at 200, that’s messed up to me to be honest. I don’t know. I’m happy to be tested and I know Nate’s being tested. I know Nate’s been throwing accusations at me, but it’s his teammates that have been caught before. I just hope he’s been tested as much as I’ve been tested. I’m happy to be tested. I won’t do an Aldo and throw the piss over my shoulder and ring the police like he done in Brazil. I welcome them in, I do the test and that’s it. It’s a good thing for the sport, that’s all I know so I’m happy to be test [sic].”
USADA recently announced that they have plans to continue to ramp up testing in the UFC.
