Certain sections of the MMA community are apparently furious that Conor McGregor will not be tested by USADA in 2022.

As TSN Sports’ Aaron Bronsteter reported, McGregor is the only active fighter on the UFC roster — aside from fighters signed after Aug. 1 — who has yet to be tested by USADA this year.

Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is recovering from the horrific leg injury he suffered in his last fight in July 2021. He is reportedly aiming for a return to the octagon, potentially by weight lightweight or welterweight, in February/March 2023.

Addressing Bronsteter’s report, USADA suggested that McGregor and other athletes in USADA’s testing pool sometimes be granted testing waivers on a case-by-case basis.

After cross-referencing the entire active UFC roster with USADA’s Athlete Testing History Database, I found that Conor McGregor was the only active fighter (besides some athletes who signed after August 1) not to be tested by USADA.

Speaking of which, some fans are now accusing UFC President Dana White and USADA of knowingly letting Conor McGregor use banned PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs). Some of the tweets from the enraged fans were posted below:

“McGregor is living proof of that, Dana White controls Usada. He gave her an exemption. Conor has been doing GH and oral anabolics for a while now, as well as blood doping. It’s hilarious actually.”

“Seems fishy”

“You can buy yourself just about anything for a very long time”

Some fans claimed that “The Notorious” was simply reaping the benefits of being the biggest draw in the UFC. A fan has speculated that McGregor has probably retired which is why he is untested, but the UFC will not announce this publicly as his departure could have a negative effect on the course of the action of the organization. Others have accused McGregor of using HGH (human growth hormone) and other DEPs:

“He would blast hgh to help fix the broken bone”

“conor needs to be emptied of his boy spirit”

@aaronbronsteter Wild Take: What if he’s retired and they don’t announce it because it will disrupt their stock price?

Some fans have also asked if former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman – who suffered a similar leg injury to McGregor – has been tested this year. Bronsteter responded by revealing that Weidman was indeed tested four times in 2022:

“Has Chris Weidman been tested? I wonder because he came out with the same type of injury.”

“Yes, four samples in 2022”

@aaronbronsteter Has Chris Weidman been tested? I wonder because he came out with the same type of injury.

Conor McGregor’s stylish response to an MMA fan’s PED allegations

Similar to several other MMA fans, kickboxing and fitness influencer Matt Marenic recently hinted that UFC megastar Conor McGregor was on steroids. While the Irishman is known for his fiery responses on social media, he responded to Marenic’s tweet in a smooth and elegant manner.

Conor McGregor pointed out that he was simply using the Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey brand he represents, alongside his ‘Forged Irish Stout’, beef and TIDL salvage products.

“Proper Twelve and Forged Irish Stout. Served with my own organic Irish beef, served on a hot stone. Tidl pain spray.”
