UFC Offered Free VADA Testing by the number of suspensions handed to fighters who use illegal substances, likes PEDs, testing fighters has become common practice. To help clean up the sport, Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) has offered some free testing.

“I believe the UFC would save money, improve public confidence that fighters are competing clean, injuries would be less with fighters competing less on PEDs, and overall safety would improve,” wrote Dr. Margaret Goodman in a letter to Bloody Elbow.

The proposal was sent to the honchoes at the UFC and said at least one year of testing would be free. It would allow random testing of the blood and urine. Also, education courses would be included for fighters.

VADA no longer tests for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, but would include it in the UFC package at the promotion’s request.

The UFC has not responded to the offer.
