Aldo claims McGregor isn't being drug-tested but the records show he's wrong
“He’s not being tested In Ireland.”

ACCORDING TO JOSE Aldo, Conor McGregor hasn’t been undergoing drug tests in the build-up to their bout at UFC 194.

However, the US Anti-Doping Agency’s (USADA) database of UFC athletes suggests otherwise.

Aldo and McGregor will square off in Las Vegas on 12 December, with the winner being crowned the undisputed UFC featherweight champion.

The pair were originally due to meet at UFC 189 back in July, but Aldo was forced to withdraw due to a rib injury. Beforehand, the Brazilian encountered controversy after a Drug Free Sport tester ran into some difficulty when trying to collect a urine sample at Aldo’s gym in Rio de Janeiro.

In an interview with Brazilian media outlet Combate, which was published yesterday, Aldo claimed that McGregor isn’t being drug-tested ahead of next month’s bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“He’s not being tested In Ireland,” said Aldo “I don’t even know if there’s a commission there. This commission had to be from Vegas or anywhere. We said that, like he said it a lot, we wanted to be tested every week at the same time, me and him, but it didn’t happen. I’m being tested a lot, they come here to the gym.”

Although Ireland, unlike Brazil, doesn’t have a commission to act as a governing body for the sport of mixed martial arts, USADA now implements drug-testing procedures for UFC athletes worldwide.

That’s backed up by records on their website, which show that McGregor and Aldo have both been tested four times in recent months — twice each in the third and fourth quarters of the year.

Aldo took to Instagram yesterday to inform his followers of his latest test: “Another test in the account.”
