Just because Conor McGregor claims to be retired doesn’t mean that USADA will stop drug testing him even on his yacht.
So the former UFC lightweight and featherweight says he’s done, in order to be truly retired from the sport he needs to pull out of the drug testing pool of USADA. If he does that then he would need to re-enter the pool and wait six months before fighting again. Clearly, he didn’t do that.
Conor McGregor Was Surprised By USADA Drug Test On Yacht
He told the story in this post on his Twitter account:
“What’s going on here @ufc? USADA have just arrived to my yacht this morning for testing?I’ve retired guys! But go on then, I’ll allow them test me. It’s all natural here baby! Forever and always, God Bless Folded hands 180km across the Mediterranean Sea tomorrow! LET’S GO!!”
Dana White has already confirmed that McGregor won’t fight until 2020. However, he wouldn’t rule out a possible return in 2021.
