It seems that Conor McGregor is finally ready to undergo the mandatory six months of USADA drug-testing he’s required to undergo before he can return to competing in the UFC.
In a post on his Instagram page McGregor claims that he’s now signed the necessary paperwork and handed it in to USADA boss Jeff Novitzky.
“Find my targets. Hit them. F*ck the consequences. You’re going down. This is fighting,” McGregor wrote.
“Sparring day with slick @grozdevnikolay. Always a banger of a spar with the slick fella. Submitted my stuff to Novitzky. Ball rolling ⚽ See you soon you little light work b*tch.”
McGregor had recently indicated that he still intends to fight Michael Chandler upon his return, so it’s likely he who his last comment is aimed at.
And today’s news that McGregor could be eligible to compete again by April of next year appears to tie in nicely with recent comments from Chandler that UFC 300 could be the landing spot for their fight as the event is currently anticipated to take place that month.
“Best I can say, UFC 300 could possibly be what everyone is probably looking at,” Chandler had said on THE MMA Hour show. “So, right around that six-month mark from there would make a lot of sense, but I haven’t set a date. I’m just a foot soldier ready for that phone call, and when that phone call comes in, I go to work.”
