Daniel Cormier has a well documented dispute with Jon Jones. Cormier was surprised to learn that USADA has been somewhat biased in who they chose to test.
Over the last several months, the organization has been under heavy criticism. Conor McGregor, who has been sidelined due to a broken leg, was ostensibly allowed to leave the testing pool.
USADA has previously indicated that in order to avoid testing, one must retire or be released.
Additionally, Jiri Prochazka’s treatment by USADA has drawn criticism.
Prochazka has been tested by USADA more than most of the roster including athletes who previously had suspect test results and suspensions including Jon Jones.
Daniel Cormier appears to find this situation very irritating. On his channel, he criticized USADA.
“One of the reasons with Jon Jones was that he was gonna get to come back, but he was gonna be the most tested guy in USADA. They were gonna be on him. They were gonna make sure that he didn’t have picograms or any of that stuff. Where are his damn tests? I mean, why is he not the most tested?”
“Why are you testing Jiri Prochazka more than you’re testing this guy who has a history of having these types of issues? That makes no sense.”
“That’s not fair. That’s not random.”
“They say it’s random all the time, but not 64 times. Look, come on, seriously, he should be tested. Based on history, we’re through the year. Poor Jiri Prochazka is showing his wiener every six days, he’s having to get in front of that USADA guy. And, we have a guy, who has a history… that got tested a third of the months in a year.”
Cormier then concluded:
“That’s not fair, that’s not random. USADA should look at it with Jones based on the history of PEDs or the issues he’s had. To me, that just doesn’t make any sense that he’s been tested so little.”
