Conor McGregor FINALLY drug tested by USADA as UFC superstar compares himself to Leo DiCaprio as testers board his yacht | The Sun

CONOR MCGREGOR claims to have submitted his first drug tests after re-entering the USADA testing pool.

The Notorious put the wheels in motion for his eagerly-anticipated comeback fight by officially re-enrolling in the United States Anti-Doping Agency's testing pool earlier this month.

And, according to the UFC's poster boy, it didn't take long for USADA testers to request blood and urine samples from him – which they took while he was cruising on his multi-million-pound yacht.

He tweeted on Wednesday: "I was tested two separate times yesterday and within an hour of each other: blood and urine.

"3 samples of each were requested and given in both instances. They came aboard my yacht. I welcomed them."

McGregor, 35, even claims to have offered the sample collectors some of his Forged Stout and Proper 12 Whiskey.

He continued: "Gave them a can of @ForgedStout and a @ProperWhiskey. Life is good."

Former two-division champion McGregor likened USADA's trips to his yacht to the FBI's visit to Jordan Belfort's luxury vessel in the Hollywood blockbuster 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

The Dubliner shared a snap of the exchange – in which Leonardo DiCaprio laughs at the copper – to his X page moments after sharing the clip.

The drama over McGregor's re-enrolling in the USADA testing pool, which he left in the wake of the horrific leg break he suffered in 2021, prompted the UFC to part ways with the anti-doping agency.

USADA announced last week that their contract with mixed martial arts' premier promotion will not be renewed – despite both parties having a "positive and productive meeting" about doing so back in May.

They claimed their relationship became "untenable" over the UFC's stance on McGregor's return.

USADA suggested the UFC planned to waive the minimum six-month testing pool requirement for returning athletes in order to have Mystic Mac return by year's end.

That notion has been refuted by the UFC's Chief Business Officer and Chief Executive Officer Hunter Campbell and Dana White, the latter of whom launched a scathing attack on the organisation.

The UFC's president and newly-minted CEO told Pat McAfee: "It was a dirty move.

"That was straight-up scumbag-ism.

"So that will all be addressed today, not by me.

"I'll let [Jeff] Novitzky and our lawyer Hunter Campbell handle that.

"The you know what is about to hit the fan.”

Drug Free Sport will now oversee the UFC's anti-doping programme.

Prior to the announcement of the partnership with Drug Free Sport, White said: "We would pay an independent company [to oversee their testing].

'It's the best way to do it. We have a standard that we set here, but a lot of people are upset with USADA.

"And we're working on going in another direction."

The Irishman is set to be welcomed back to the octagon next year by former two-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler, although a date for their showdown has not yet been announced.
