UFC color commentator has speculated that given the recent physique change of former two-weight champion, Conor McGregor, that should he submit a urine test sample to anti-doping agency, USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency), he would likely melt the administer’s testing cup. 

McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion under the UFC banner, has been sidelined since July of last year, headlining UFC 264.

Matching with former interim lightweight titleholder, Dustin Poirier in a trilogy rubber match, McGregor suffered a first round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to the Louisana native, fracturing his left tibia and fibula in the opening frame.

In the time since, however, the Crumlin native has yet to be subject to testing by USADA, with his most recent test sample administered back in the third quarter of last year.

Recently, former UFC light heavyweight title chaser, Anthony Smith has questioned if McGregor has been utilizing performance-enhancing drugs during his time away from the Octagon, in order to recovery from his leg injury – given his mass increase during his period on the sidelines.

Joe Rogan shares his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s speculated use of PEDs

Interviewing YouTuber, More Plates More Dates on his podcast recently, UFC commentator, Rogan claimed if McGregor submitted a urine test sample to USADA, he would likely melt through their cup.

“He’s taking his shirt off and posing constantly and he looks like his piss would melt that USADA cup,” Joe Rogan said of Conor McGregor on The Joe Rogan Experience. “Like it would just burn a hole right through the bottom of that USADA cup.”

According to the aforenoted, More Plates More Dates host, Derek, he doubts McGregor passes the “eye test” in many people’s judgements.

“I did a whole deep dive video on what I think he (Conor McGregor) could be doing,” Derek said. “And I think for any individual that doesn’t pass the eye test, he’d definitely be one of those individuals. But I wouldn’t boil it down to that, he could be a hyper-outlier individual for sure. And I would never want to make a definitive statement. I think it’s highly probable that he’s done certain things for sure.” (Transcribed by MMA Mania)

Rafael Dos Anjos Conor McGregor UFC Orlando

With photos of Conor McGregor‘s shredded physique circulating the internet, Rafael Dos Anjos took the time to give his opinion on them and may have implied that ‘The Notorious’ could be on PEDs.

Rafael Dos Anjos returned to the winner’s circle after his fantastic performance at UFC Orlando. He faced wild brawler Bryan Barberena and ensured he would not be baited into the wild slugfests that Barberena is widely known for.

RDA secured a submission victory over Barberena in round two via rear naked choke. After the fight, the legend hopped on the microphone and called out none other than Conor McGregor. The two were supposed to fight way back in March of 2016, but a tragic injury forced RDA out of the scrap and was why Nate Diaz took his place to face ‘The Notorious’.

Rafael Dos Anjos speaks on Conor McGregor’s questionable new physique

During the post-fight press conference, RDA shared his thoughts about desiring a fight with McGregor, questioned his new physique, and objected to him being out of the USADA testing pool.

“Look at my resume; I’ve fought everybody. I think I’ve earned this fight. I will not ask UFC for extra crazy paydays, I just wanna have that fight. July works perfect for me, we’ll see what happens.” Dos Anjos said, (h/t via BJ PENN.com).

“He’s out of USADA. Why is he out of the pool?” RDA continued. “It looks like, his body looks so different. I’ve given him some time to get clear.”

RDA confirmed that if the two did fight, it would surely be at welterweight. While everybody would relish a fight with ‘The Notorious’, you could make a very compelling case as to why Dos Anjos deserves it. He’s fought every and anybody that the UFC saw fit to put in his path. He’s faced them fearlessly and never complained about his strength in the competition he’s been pitted against.

Should Rafael Dos Anjos face Conor McGregor for his comeback fight?

MJF, Conor McGregor, AEW

Professional wrestler MJF wore a Conor McGregor inspired suit on AEW Dynamite. It was a lettered pinstripe outfit that had MJF’s catchphrase “Better Than You” all over it. 

It was a nod to McGregor, who wore a “f**k you” suit during his press tour against Floyd Mayweather in 2017. 

The two stars are no stranger to one another. They were recently involved in a Twitter exchange that also involved UFC star Paddy Pimblett

The AEW world champion dubbed Pimblett a “dollar store” version of the Irishman. He also invited the 27-year-old to show up on a 2023 episode of AEW Dynamite in London to settle the beef. 

“The Notorious One” responded to MJF’s comments by supporting his fellow UFC star. 

A dollar store Conor is still worth millions,” McGregor said. “Let’s go young Paddy Pimb! Don’t know who this other clown is.”

MJF Didn’t Take Too Kindly to Conor McGregor’s Tweet

MJF responded by accusing the former UFC champion of taking steroids and calling him a “leprechaun”. He is referring to the recent speculation that McGregor is on performance-enhancing drugs. His increased physique and absence in the USADA testing pool have increased rumors. He has denied any wrongdoing. 

I’ll f**k the Conor clone up. Then I’ll wipe my a** with the original. Stay in your lane you roided up leprechaun. You can’t hang with the @AEW World Champion. #Betterthanyou

This isn’t the first altercation that McGregor has had with a professional wrestler. In 2014, he had a Twitter exchange with WWE star Sheamus. Two years later, he was asked if he’d be interested in a cross-promotional event with WWE. He wasn’t interested and even called the wrestlers “p***ies” and “dweebs”. It led to an online beef with several members of the WWE roster.

I didn’t mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans. What I meant to say was that I’d slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sunday’s,” McGregor tweeted in 2016.

Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey, Paige VanZant, and Matt Riddle have all spent time in both the octagon and the wrestling ring. It will be interesting to see if McGregor follows suit.

Streaking UFC lightweight prospect, Paddy Pimblett has claimed a potential future fight against former two-weight champion, Conor McGregor as likely the biggest pay-per-view event the organization could ever field – surpassing the Dubliner’s 2018 clash with Khabib Nurmagomedov

Returning to the Octagon for his fourth appearance under the Dana White-led banner later this month, Pimblett co-headlines UFC 282 in his pay-per-view debut, drawing Jared Gordon at the lightweight limit.

The Liverpool native debuted in the organization in September of last year, securing a first round knockout win over Luigi Vendramini, before collecting back-to-back submission wins over Kazula Vargas, and then Jordan Leavitt this year in London. 

As for McGregor, the 34-year-old has yet to return to active competition since headlining UFC 264 in July of last year, fracturing his left tibia and fibula in a doctor’s stoppage TKO loss against Dustin Poirier

Paddy Pimblett weighs up future fight with Conor McGregor

Discussing a potential fight with McGregor in the future, Pimblett claimed the duo would turn in the biggest pay-per-view event in promotional antiquity.

“It would be the biggest pay-per-view that the UFC has ever seen, like put it that way, goes without saying,” Paddy Pimblett told ESPN MMA

Defending McGregor to boot, Pimblett believes the Crumlin native’s days at the lightweight limit are over, however.

“I think when Conor comes back, he’ll be fighting at 170,” Paddy Pimblett explained. “He’ll struggle to make 155 now to be honest. He’s looking big. But I respect Conor, you know what I mean? What he’s done for this sport, he’s done a lot more than most of the people that have done this sport, and I think he gets a bad rep, like he doesn’t get the respect he deserves.”

“Get that paper, you know that,” Pimblett said. “No brainer, you know what I mean? Anybody that says no to fight Conor is an idiot, simple as that, I bet you [Rafael dos Anjos] regrets pulling out of that fight years ago. Bet you that’s the biggest regret of his life.” (Transcribed by MMA Junkie

At the time of publication, the current highest-selling pay-per-view event in UFC history came in October 2018, with the aforenoted, McGregor and Khabib grossing a reported 2,400,000 purchases.
