Henry Cejudo gives his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s lack of USADA testing.

Henry Cejudo is giving his thoughts on the testing or lack thereof for Conor McGregor. McGregor has been out of competition for over a year while he heals up for a leg break that was suffered in his last bout against Dustin Poirier. McGregor has spent the last year and a half healing his leg and plotting his UFC return. However during this time, at least in the year 2022, he has not been tested by the U.S Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). 

All active fighters in the UFC must be enrolled to be tested by USADA. The organization was brought in back in 2015 to randomly administer drug tests to all fighters whether they are in fight camp or not. The only way to leave the program would be to retire from the sport or leave the UFC. McGregor has not officially announced his retirement and has expressed his desire to return in the future.

The fact that McGregor has not been tested this year despite presumably being an active fighter on the roster has brought up some accusations. Some feel that McGregor may have pulled himself out of the program temporarily in order to use banned substances. Although those accusations are not founded and have been responded to by McGregor, his bulked-up physique leads to speculation.

Former UFC champion Cejudo thinks McGregor is taking something but perhaps not what people are thinking.

“He’s on that privilege list, that’s crazy. Those are things to bring up. That’s crazy,” he said on his YouTube channel. “Yeah, but the roids are not going to help Conor. Of course, he’s on that sh-t not only that but that ain’t going to help him. The dude needs to stay away from the coke and booze. That’s what he needs to do.”

If McGregor has been removed from the testing pool, he will need to re-enroll before fighting in the UFC. There could be up to a six-month testing period before he can step foot in the cage. In the meantime, he is busy with other endeavors such as starting his acting career.
