UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is no stranger to USADA’s stringent drug-testing policies. Being a former Olympic wrestler, “DC” has been subjected to a good number of such tests, and has provided 67 different samples dating back from 2001.
With no record of any PED accusations, let alone drug test failures, Cormier sees no point in USADA’s efforts of constantly trying to track him down.
“Here’s the deal: when it comes to USADA, they can’t come to my house any more at 6AM,” Cormier said on last week’s episode of UFC Tonight (transcript via MMA Mania). “What’s the point? They’ve come to my house 15 times. When it comes to USADA they can’t come to my house any more. You don’t need to. You don’t need to come; I’m not going to fail any tests.”
“I’m not going to make any mistakes. I’m not going to have to sit up there and say ‘I’m serious this time, guys, I promise I really wasn’t trying to cheat.’”
On Thursday, Cormier posted a screenshot of a missed call from the agency, as he once again compelled them via social media to leave him be.
Per USADA’s records (via MMA Weekly), Jones had only been tested once in 2018, as he claims that he never left the testing pool throughout his absence.
