USADA might be interested in this photo of Conor McGregor standing next to a giant tub of weed

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor is on location in Amsterdam, because he made a zillion dollars boxing Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has no compelling reason to return to mixed martial arts (MMA).

Sure, the 155-pound weight class is being held hostage by his “Notorious” demands, which led to the creation of some other title that defies labels, but the “C” in UFC stands for Conor (according to this guy), so he can do whatever the hell he pleases.

Like hang out in coffees shops that sell marijuana in the same way that Costco sells mayonnaise.

Naturally, there is no evidence that McGregor purchased or consumed weed (unlike this guy), but I’m mildly amused by the idea of a red phone ringing in a dimly-lit office somewhere in the bowels of USADA headquarters.

Followed by a team of urine cops chasing McGregor across Amsterdam, always one vial step behind.

If and when the free-spirited Irishman returns to UFC remains to be seen, but according to promotion president Dana White, the show must go on, with or without him.
