USADA handing out free t-shirts to UFC fighters passing 25 drug tests or more

“Train Clean. Fight Clean.”

United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) is prepared to recognize those mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters competing for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) who are able to pass 25 straight drug tests, or more, with an official 25x t-shirt.

Because nothing says “Sorry for waking you up at 3am” like 100% cotton.

“Participating in a robust anti-doping program requires a year-round commitment to competing clean, both by being available for testing without notice and in being diligent in what you consume,” said Travis T. Tygart, CEO, USADA. “The program can be inconvenient at times, but as we hear from athletes frequently, it’s a lot less inconvenient than being seriously hurt or being robbed of a win. These athletes have hit a high mark for the UFC program and are role models for clean sport competition.”

Here’s the list of fighters being honored, along with how many drug tests they’ve passed:

Holly Holm (35)

Cris Cyborg (33)

Eddie Alvarez (32)
Vitor Belfort (32)

Daniel Cormier (30)
Rafael dos Anjos (30)

Stipe Miocic (28)

Robbie Lawler (27)
T.J. Dillashaw (27)
Conor McGregor (27)
Edson Barboza (27)
Dominick Cruz (27)
Fabricio Werdum (27)
Frankie Edgar (27)

Tecia Torres (26)

Stephen Thompson (25)
Tyron Woodley (25)
Dustin Poirier (25)
Johny Hendricks (25)

While this is all well and good, I’d rather see t-shirts for those fighters who can’t pass a drug test, straight-up Scarlet Letter style.
