Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera (21-8 MMA) recently fought and defeated Pedro Munhoz (20-8 MMA) this past August at UFC 292.

In a video posted to ‘X‘, Vera sat down with Bradley Martyn and discussed how easy it is to get around the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency):

“Pussies that cheat to win tournaments and enhance with drugs; when people cheat, they do drugs to be faster. I’m talking (in) competition. If you wanna be a f**king big guy, be a big guy, cool. But fighting, specific. It’s too f**ked up. I think there’s a lot of people taking it because it’s so easy to beat USADA. You need like 20 grand. Call a good doctor, boom.”

Continuing, Marlon Vera said:

“A good doctor will give you good products. He will tell you how to clean yourself. USADA only comes 6am to 6pm. I would love if USADA knock on your door at 4am, 10pm, 3pm — random, because they have this window. So, I can go to the f*cking mountains in Ecuador and tell them I’m hunting. I’ll be doing EPO and sh*t. By the time I come back there’s nothing in me.”

The 30-year-old has been drug tested 53 times during his UFC tenure and has passed every single time.

Concluding, Marlon Vera stated:

“I’d rather die before I cheat, bro.”

This is not the first time Vera has made accusations concerning fighters being on steroids and getting away with cheating despite USADA testing.
