USADA open website, Confirm Rousey tested the most

Published

on


The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) today opened their doors for the public to check which athletes have been tested in and out of competition, by opening their new website.

The USADA and the UFC for a partnership earlier in the year, for the USADA to conduct tests on any and all athletes associated with the MMA promotion.

The website allows fans to look at which UFC athletes have been tested in and out of competition since the guidelines came in on July 1st 2015.

It also gives a WADA list of all banned substances, which is extensive, and includes everything from PED’s (Performance enhancing drugs) all the way to what WADA call Cannabinoids, which are essentially any and all forms of cannabis.

The list of completed tests can also spring some surprise results.  The list itself compiles all athletes tested, and how many time they have been tested. With a total of 50 athletes tested, with a total of 81 tests conducted.

There are a number of fighters who have been tested on one occasion, which includes recent main eventers in Japan Roy Nelson and Josh Barnett. The list of single tests also includes the likes of Paige Van Zant, Ryan Bader, Rashad Evans and Uriah hall among others.

There are also a few fighters which have been tested on multiple times, including UFC 194 main event combatants Jose Aldo (2 tests) and Conor McGregor (2), Invicta Featherweight champion Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino (2), as well as Light Heavyweight title contender Alexander Gustafsson (2) and UFC Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier who has also been subject to 2 tests.

There are also a few fighters that have been subjected to more than 2 tests, which include Jimi Manuwa and Anthony Johnson, both with 3 tests each. Bethe Correia, Thiago Alves and Antonio Silva have all been subject to 4 tests since the 1st of July.

But the most tested athlete on the UFC roster is UFC Womans Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, who has been tested a total of 5 times.

However as the USADA say themselves, you can view any sanctions the fighters have faced due to failed tests by clicking on the fighters name from the list of tested subjects, but as there are no links to any of the fighters on the list, it would lead you to believe that not one of the listed athletes have failed a test for a banned substance.

Exclusive: Derek Brunson: “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up”

Published

Derek Brunson fought Anderson Silva back in February of this year, at UFC 208. Brunson would go on to lose the fight by controversial unanimous decision. However, the controversies didn’t stop at the questionable decision, Brunson also claims Silva was greasing during the fight. The Wilmington, North Carolina native, posted about it on Twitter a few days ago:

Speaking with MMA Latest, Brunson explained why he believes Silva was greasing during the fight. “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up. Every time I grabbed him he was just slipping out of everything, and his takedown defense was really good that night. I was definitely curious to know why he was very slippery, which I definitely think he had some kind of substance on his body. He knows I’m a wrestler obviously, he’s an old, savvy veteran, so he was definitely trying to play all the rules and be very strategic, and make it harder for a wrestler to grab him.”

Brunson is set to face Lyoto Machida come October 28, when asked about whether he was worried about Machida greasing, considering Gegard Mousasi accused him of doing so in their fight, Brunson admitted he wasn’t too worried.

Well I’m not too worried, but like I said, I put it out there because I know they’re friends and I know, obviously, that’s kind of what the guys do when they know they’re fighting a wrestler. They want to lube their body up really good to make it hard to grab hold, Anderson did a great job defending my takedowns. It’s because he was all greased up so he was able to stop a lot of them. When I grab guys in the clinch, it’s very tough for them to get away and I’m pretty good with my Greco takedown. He was pretty much pulling through my clinch when I had a tight grip on him and if you have some kind of substance on your body it’s easy to pull them.”

Neither Silva nor his management have commented on the greasing allegations. Anderson Silva makes his return against Kelvin Gastelum later this year, in China. While Brunson makes his return to the Octagon on October 28th, in Brazil, where he looks to add Lyoto Machida’s name to his impressive list of victories.

Ovince Saint Preux Steps in to Face Corey Anderson at UFC 217

Published

on

UFC 217 just got even more interesting. Earlier this week, Patrick Cummins pulled out of his light heavyweight matchup with Corey Anderson due to a Staph infection. Corey “Overtime” Anderson was not happy with his opponents decision, even calling out his opponent on Instagram asking how Cummins could, “call it quits so far from fight night”.

The UFC left Anderson on the card, and he found an opponent through the magic of Twitter. Ovince Saint Preux tweeted out directly to Anderson stating:

It didn’t take long for Anderson to respond agreeing to the fight, tagging Mick Maynard and Dana White in his response.

Only a few short hours later, the fight announcement came from the official UFC twitter account.

 

This top 10 Light Heavyweight matchup should add to an already amazing card coming in November at Madison Square Garden. Saint Preux is coming off of back to back wins both due to the very rare von flue choke, he finds himself ranked #7th in the latest edition of the 205-pound rankings. Corey “Overtime” Anderson is 4-2 in his last 6 fights, but is coming off a brutal first round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa in March.

With such a exciting fight added to this card, what do you see happening November 4th?  Will Corey Anderson bounce back and look to jump into the top 5 of the rankings, or will Ovince Saint Preux go for a third straight von flue choke? Let us know.
