I don’t think many people know how invasive USADA is when it comes to where fighters are, or what they have going on in their lives when it comes to drug testing. I remember being tested prior to a fight and being awakened at 6am so this dude could watch me pee in a cup, sans morning wood.
Tim Kennedy recently welcomed a USADA agent to his home ahead of his UFC 205 fight with Rashad Evans for testing. I’ll just let you read what Tim had to say.
“Last time I got tested, like a week ago, this guy came into my house and I’d just came back from a workout,” Kennedy said. “He was like, ‘We can’t take blood for an hour,’ and I was like, ‘Well, I just got done with a workout. Can I take a shower?’ He said he had to visually keep his eyes on me the whole time so I was like, ‘Well, I’m taking a shower,’ I walked into my bathroom, took my clothes off and he walked into the bathroom with me and watched me shower.
“He was like, ‘Are you serious?’ So I said, ‘Shall I rinse again? Shall I use more soap? Are my balls clean?’ He 100 percent watched me. I’m not going to sit there dirty after practice.”
