Diego Sanchez, Yana Kunitskaya question fairness of USADA testing

Diego Sanchez

UFC fighters Diego Sanchez and Yana Kunitskaya recently questioned the fairness of the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s testing protocols.

Kunitskaya was the first to open up on the topic, noting that when she and her boyfriend, UFC light heavyweight Thiago Santos, were in Russia and Brazil, they weren’t tested by USADA at all.

“@TMarretaMMA and I spent 2 months in Russia and then 6 in Brazil.@usantidoping did not test us once! My first week in the US and I’ve already been tested. Makes we wonder if all the athletes training outside of the United States are being tested regularly.” – Yana Kunitskaya on Twitter.

This comment from Kunitskaya prompted a followup remark from Diego Sanchez, who questioned USADA’s whereabouts requirements.

As I watch the sands of time slip through my reality, I watch many men bald & go grey as they wither into the best moments of their pasts. I watch with open eyes and a understanding heart as a human witness. Why am I different? I found what I needed too… my own weird outside the box anti-aging experimentation with very open mindsets. This led me to my own truths, nothing taught or read. mental, spiritual & physical💯 In my pursuit of holding on to my youth for my so called self proclaimed destiny. I found that NATURE was everything! And I became a natural man EARTHMAN… human-earth-relationship… ❤️🤝🌍🤝❤️ from the earth dirt to the earth dirt!!!! The other path would have me looking and feeling older than I do. So happy I chose the natural life. #fuckthefake O yea… @usadaofficial how you think we are supposed to believe testing is fair? It’s all a money thing! You down there testing my past opponent in Brazil like you do with me here in nm a sister state to Colorado where the labs are?! Come on!! Really !!? International Flights in a COVID-19 pandemic? It doesn’t make sense! Not to me anyway! But Yet I can’t go to my girlfriends house have some drinks pass out after a long night of making love all night 😘 miss a call on my dead iPhone and now I have a missed whereabouts and increased pressure to a already pressured lifestyle? This post was for the fans, the keyboard analysts that have this whole thing figured out! There is so much that you don’t know about from Internet researching! Honestly until you get knocked the fuck out on multiple occasions in the octagon, do you really understand! So please hold your opinion at times it will make you a better soul! #ihadtosaythat
