The Notorious has been sidelined since July 2021 when he suffered a shock leg break during his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier.

And it seems like USADA has largely stepped away once the Irishman started rehab as they haven’t tested him at all this year.

USADA told Bloody Elbow “that our Athlete Test History is accurate” in regards to their posted online records being up to date and complete.

Inactive fighters or those on a long lay-off are still tested fairly regularly.

Last year, McGregor was regularly tested as he underwent as many as 10 tests in the first half of the year before having one in the third quarter and none since then.

This has created confusion and uncertainty regarding the 34-year-old’s return to the Octagon.

It comes after SunSport understood that USADA had already tested McGregor four times in the first quarter.

The UFC superstar is planning a return soon and his manager believes this will be in the first quarter of 2023.

McGregor has remained very active despite his injury as he recently returned to sparring.

The legendary fighter has also been filming a remake of Road House alongside Jake Gyllenhaal.
