It appears Conor was predicting the future , as he has re-entered the US Anti Doping Agency drug testing pool however USADA CEO Travis Tygart announced that the USADA program will only be in partnership with the UFC until Jan. 1 of 2024 after which it will no longer oversee the UFC anti doping program.

The announcement was made after a very publid-back-and-forth between the UFC and Conor McGregor in regards to his possible return following a broken leg which he suffered in July 0f 2021 during a bout with Dustin Porier.

Releasing details to the media, Tygart said, “We have been clear and firm with the UFC that there should be no exception given by the UFC for McGregor to fight until he has returned two negative tests and been in the pool for at least six months.  Tygart went on to say that he does not know if the UFC will actually honor the six month requirement because as of Jan. 1st the USADA program will no longer oversee the UFC anti doping programs which has overseen it’s athletes since 2015.

Fans familiar with the PFL will be interested to know they most recently signed a partnership with USADA to oversee their testing program. Cyborg who is the current Bellator MMA Champion said her most recent fight was overseen by Mike Mazulli of the Mohegan Sun boxing commission which oversees all Bellator MMA fighters both in and out of competition. Having previously been enrolled in the USADA program, Cyborg went on to say “there are parts of the program that need to be improved for the athlete. I think all fighters should have an opportunity to participate in the formation of any anti doping regulations for the promotion they are fighting with, ultimately the responsiblity is not with the promotion but with the commission.
