Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will be drug tested by USADA leading into their historic fight. McGregor, Mayweather to be drug tested ‘robustly’ Conor McGregor is now a part of two separate USADA drug-testing pools. The UFC lightweight champion remains under the UFC’s anti-doping policy this summer as he prepares to box Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas and will still be tested as part of that USADA-run program. In addition, McGregor has been placed in USADA’s pool for professional boxers and is subjected to testing there as well, according to a USADA spokesperson. “McGregor is subject to both the UFC Anti-Doping Policy (because he’s still an active UFC athlete) and the anti-doping program agreed to for the Mayweather vs McGregor boxing match,” the spokesperson told MMA Fighting via e-mail. McGregor has yet to be tested under the boxing program, per USADA’s athlete test history on its website, but he has been tested five times in 2017 under the UFC’s anti-doping policy, including twice this month. Mayweather has been tested twice this year, both times this month. It was the first time he’s been tested by USADA, per its website, since 2015. Mayweather has been retired since fighting Andre Berto in September 2015. McGregor was tested 11 times last year and must fill out his whereabouts on a smartphone application to tell USADA where he is daily under the UFC’s anti-doping policy. UFC hired USADA to run its anti-doping program in July 2015. USADA says the Mayweather vs McGregor drug-testing program is “consistent” with the UFC’s policy and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code. Mayweather and Mc- Gregor will be subject to no-advance notice, out-of-competition testing “at any place and anytime”. The “latest screening methods and scientific techniques” will be used, USADA promises, including a biological passport that tracks levels over time and flags samples if there are irregularities. All drug-test samples will be tested for substances like EPO, HGH and peptide hormones, and be subject to carbon-isotope ratio (CIR) screening. UFC president Dana White said during the recent MayMac World Tour that he was impressed that Mayweather contractually agreed to all the drug-testing provisions that the UFC and McGregor wanted. - www.

Elbow injury could sideline Djokovic Former world No 1 Novak Djokovic is in doubt for the US Open due to an elbow injury, Serbian media reported, citing the country’s Davis Cup team doctor. Djokovic retired hurt during the quarterfinals at Wimbledon and said he was considering taking a break from playing to recover from the longstanding injury to his right elbow. Serbia’s Sportski Zurnal reported that the 30-year-old could face up to 12 weeks on the sidelines. “He has a bruised bone due to excessive playing,” it quoted Zdenko Milinkovic as saying. “Novak is in Toronto undergoing some further tests with specialists.” The 12-times grand slam champion won the US Open in 2011 and 2015. This year’s tournament begins on August 28. – Supersport
