It’s been almost two years since Conor McGregor’s last fight. The Irish fighter broke his leg badly and had to take a forced break. But now he is supposed to be fine and still waiting to enter the USADA testing program. The latter has now issued a statement regarding him.
We have been waiting for Conor McGregor’s return to the cage for a really long time. Fans were ecstatic when the UFC announced his next fight.
The Irishman will be a part of the reality show The Ultimate Fighter, in which he will coach his charges. He will be opposed by Michael Chandler and the two will face each other at the end.
McGregor, however, exited the USADA testing program last year and must be in it for at least six months if he wants to fight again.
That’s also why fans have been constantly asking how the whole situation is going, but now it looks like things are moving in the right direction. The Irishman himself has promised his fans that he will.
And the USADA itself has spoken out, one of its employees to be precise, who announced that the anti-doping agency has been in direct contact with the fighter and is only waiting for his documents to re-enter the testing program.
“Like other athletes returning from retirement, McGregor will be subject to testing for at least six months under the UFC’s anti-doping policy and must provide at least two negative samples before he will be allowed to fight.
The purpose of this rule is to ensure that all athletes who are not subject to a period of testing are adequately tested for a period of time prior to their fights to ensure a level playing field for all fighters,” USADA announced.
The date of McGregor’s return thus remains shrouded in mystery for now. Previously, there was speculation of a fall fight, but it seems he won’t make it, so we could see a fight with Chandler in late 2023.
