UFC, Do you know where your fighters are? USADA app falls short

Frustration vred bærbar gal irriteret

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.

  1. well Kennedy is trying to use the app to file his wherabouts. You cant use the app to file initial wherabouts, have to use the web version. App is only for filing changes.
