Mayweather-McGregor USADA Testing Update

With the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor being five days away, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has announced the amount of times both fighters have been tested leading upto this Saturday.

USADA confirmed that there would be no limit to the amount of times each fighter could be tested, and that these tests would be no-advance notice and round the clock. So far, both fighters as stated by USADA would be tested the same amount of times, and as of now it has been 12 times since July.

McGregor due to being both a licensed boxer and MMA fighter is a part of two separate USADA testing groups. Prior to this, Mcgregor was tested three times in the MMA group in 2017.

On the opposite side of the ring, Mayweather is being tested for the first time since he last fought in 2015.  In that same year when he fought Manny Pacquiao and Andre Berto, he was tested a total of 34 times.
