Conor McGregor gets steroid allegations
McGregor was entailed in a controversy after reports emerged that he hasn’t been tested by USADA this year. After some fans pointed it out a few weeks ago, MMA journalist Aaron Bronsteter reported in detail on the matter. USADA provided a somewhat unclear statement addressing the matter that said “the UFC may grant an exemption” to the rule that compels athletes to remain active in the testing pool for six months before competing.

McGregor has caught the attention of fans for putting on size since his injury and even has flaunted it, which Smith finds dodgy:
“It bothers the f*ck out of me – like that he pulled himself out of the USADA pool,” Smith said on Michael Bisping’s “Believe You Me” podcast. “There’s only one reason you would do that. He’s looking jacked as sh*t. You keep seeing videos of him flexing in front of mirrors and screaming and he’s huge. He healed really fast. Like, really fast.
“(Chris) Weidman still hasn’t (from his broken leg). I talked to Weidman today. He’s still having struggles. He’s still struggling to get back. Anderson (Silva) took a long time. Corey Hill took a long time. Anybody who’s broken their leg has taken a long time. He’s seemingly pretty healed up. It just bugs me that he gets to jump out of the pool, juice up on whatever he’s juiced on, and then just jump back in the pool and no one’s going to say sh*t about it? I don’t know. It’s weird. It bothers me.”
