Joe Rogan is the latest MMA personality to suggest, without any evidence, that Conor McGregor might be using performance-enhancing drugs.
Notorious hasn’t fought since fracturing his tibia and fibula at UFC 264 last July. However, he is now fully recovered and is currently preparing for his highly anticipated comeback.
The 34-year-old has announced his intention to return to welterweight and has spent much of 2022 building muscle to compete with champions like Leon Edwards, Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal.
McGregor looks huge right now. So huge in fact that her body transformation is questioned by UFC fighters who suspect she’s unnatural.
UFC light-heavyweight contender Anthony Smith, former interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje and his last opponent Dustin Poirier have all publicly suggested that McGregor used steroids during his injury layoff.
That’s partly down to his growing physique, but also the fact that the former two-weight UFC champion left the UFC’s drug testing program and hasn’t been at all. tested in 2022.
McGregor says he quit US Anti-Doping [USADA] test pool to focus on rehabilitation and will re-enter there in February before taking two drug tests and booking his next opponent.
However, USADA generally requires fighters returning to the test pool to undergo six months of drug testing before competing, which means McGregor’s return could be delayed.

Rogan, who has worked for the UFC since 1997, recently commented on McGregor’s body transformation and his absence from the USADA program.
“He takes his shirt off and poses constantly, and it looks like his piss would melt that USADA cup. Like, it would be like burning a hole in the bottom of that USADA cup,” Rogan joked on his podcast.
But McGregor wasn’t the only person Rogan sued, and he called Dwayne Johnson “The Rock” for also taking performance-enhancing drugs.
The UFC commentator added that he believes McGregor found a loophole that allowed him to use illegal drugs without breaking the rules.
“What’s weird is there’s a loophole in USADA that lets you get out of the test group. You can get out of the testing pool and just recharge,” Rogan added.
McGregor has since responded to Rogan whom he recently mocked for pointing out that he landed an illegal knee on Khabib Nurmagomedov during their infamous fight at UFC 229 in October 2018.
He tweeted. alongside two photos of Rogan: “Joe looks like his piss is melting his panties, in the company that’s long and never fought hahaha UFC oh tae kwon do competition call the cops hahahahaah”
