Not long ago, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) implemented a plan that stated fighters employed by the UFC had to make their travel plans known at all times in connection with out-of-competition testing.
The third-party testing agency, which oversees the UFC’s new anti-doping program, reminded athletes via Twitter that 4th quarter whereabout forms are due Wednesday.
Whereabouts forms are filled out on a quarterly basis. If a fighter is unavailable for testing due to inaccurate information provided on the whereabouts form, they receive a whereabouts failure.
Three whereabouts failures can trigger a suspension, so it’s essential that fighters keep up.
But how can fighters be held accountable when the system doesn’t work?
Below are a few of the fighters’ frustrations.
