UFC and USADA make significant changes to anti-doping policy
The UFC and USADA announced changes to their anti-doping policy. The biggest of changes deals with retired, returning, and new fighters. Previously, 'retired' fighters would undergo 4 months of drug testing before competing Now, they have to enter the drug testing pool 6 months prior. However, new fighters and those that are returning due to other circumstances, will be subject to one month of drug testing. The UFC can still waive these rulings depending on the situation.
