Kamaru Usman Lashes Out At USADA After Suprise Visit
Kamaru Usman was not happy after a surprise visit from the US Anti-doping Agency (USADA) on Thursday.
As UFC has the ambition of keeping the sport clean, it has allowed USADA to randomly test fighters inside and outside the competition. It means that they can even go to the fighter’s home at inappropriate times. When they visited his house recently, it resulted in a severe backlash from the 35-year-old on social media.
Dear @usantidoping there’s a reason u make us fill out our whereabouts. So U know where we are at all times. Disrupting our sleep at 5am is just plain stupid. Next time I’ll make you guys follow me around all day 😒🤬

“Dear @usantidoping, there’s a reason you make us fill out our whereabouts. So U know where we are at all times. Disrupting our sleep at 5 am is just plain stupid. Next time I’ll make you guys follow me around all day,” Usman wrote.
This is not the same Usman as last year when he was overcome with joy after being gifted a jacket for 50 successful tests by the USADA.
The occurrence of this scenario is not surprising. Many fighters already knew that this could happen. Every fighter is told to fill out the “whereabouts” form so that USADA can know where their residence is or where they are located. However, it looks like some fighters are having problems with it.
