VADA Testing Has Already Disrupted Rory MacDonald Once

Rory MacDonald is set to face former UFC champion BJ Penn this December. Upon urging from Penn, MacDonald agreed to conduct VADA testing as a way to clean up MMA from the use of performance enhancing drugs.

Well, as MacDonald explained during Fuel TV special’s Training Day: Inside Tristar Gym Live on Monday, the random tests have already disrupted him once.

“It’s pretty annoying. I don’t like getting woken up in the morning. It threw my routine off. It was a bit annoying that day, but if it only happens a couple times, I can deal with it.”

MacDonald (13-1) said the company can inquire a test at anytime. The bout with Penn (16-8-2) is set for December 8 from Seattle at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz.
