Watch: Faber Talks Staying In USADA Pool

Even though Urijah Faber fought his last MMA fight in 2016, he has kept himself in the USADA testing pool, just in case he feels that itch to compete again.

As reported by Bloody Elbow, Faber spoke to submission radio following UFC 221 and is open to any opportunities that would come his way.

“It’s not my goal necessarily (to keep actively training), it’s just the habits that I’ve created in my life. I’m always open to entertain any business opportunity or offer, and I love things that I love to do.”

In regard to the random tests and pop-ins by USADA agents, the notoriously clean fighter feels fine with it.

“I still get tested from USADA just because I’ve never taken drugs in my life, so I don’t really care about that,” Faber said. “If there was a big opportunity and someone wanted you to fight, and it sounds like a good idea, I wouldn’t want to wait four months to get cleared when I’m not doing drugs anyways.”

Faber also made it known to Submission Radio that the UFC 196 main event fight against Conor McGregor was offered to him, but eventually went to Nate Diaz.
