So there’s been a lot of talk about UFC fighters and their involvement with drugs lately. Steroids has been a huge problem for the modern MMA game, as a number of very high profile names fell from the grace in the last two years.
Likely the most well known of those caught red handed was ex-UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The Brazilian legend was caught with anabolic steroids in his system after a 2015 encounter with Nick Diaz.
So where does UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor come in to this debate? Well, a rather controversial photo was doing the rounds this week, claiming he was at a house party doing cocaine.
Of course this would have to be taken with a pinch of salt, but check out the following video that has emerged.
The text underneath the images are the photographers comments about Conor McGregr on a well known mixed martial arts forum, we’ve enhanced the image so you can read what’s said:
Perhaps the ost well known fighter to get caught with recreational drugs in his system was former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones. While the young Greg Jackson’s product was still ruling the 205-pound division, he was busted with cocaine in his system
That was in 2015 too, although the actual test on Jones dated back to 2014. But what are we looking at above? All we know so far is that the person who uploaded the photographs to the MMA forums may not be the same one that filmed or even took the original pictures.
Perhaps it’s someone with a vendetta against McGregor? Or maybe they are authentic and he was partying hard that day. The truth is we’ll never know for sure either way unless ‘The Notorious’ pops for any kind of illegal substance.
Stay on point for updates.
