UFC president Dana White recently gave the latest updates regarding the long-going story about Conor McGregor and the USADA.
“He submitted the paperwork. Probably by Monday, he’ll be submitted. Again, don’t hold me to that. But the paperwork is submitted next week sometime,” White said.
“I literally have nothing planned with Conor McGregor right now.”
Conor McGregor “beat the system”
MMA journalist Luke Thomas recently argued that McGregor has already beaten USADA by never retiring but getting out of the test pool.
“He got to take whatever drugs, via medical intervention or however it went down, that he wanted,” Thomas said. “Whatever methods he used to fuse the bone that weren’t USADA approved and who knows what else may have happened beyond that. That he’s going to be able to get back in without penalty — even if he has to wait the six months — he already won. He already won.”
After the horrible injury McGregor suffered facing Dustin Poirier for the third time in July 2021, the superstar has been out of action.
“He had a devastating injury, he was able to take time off, not retire, was still able to be ranked, take all the drugs he wanted for whatever purpose, and come right back,” Thomas claimed. “We will see how many times he gets tested, and that will tell us ultimately what the proof in the pudding is. But no matter what, the guy already beat USADA just to get to this point.”
