BJ Penn Requests Drug Tests in MacDonald Fight

Penn Requests Voluntary Drug-Tests from his Next Opponent, Rory MacDonald

BJ Penn has recently come out on Twitter, asking his next opponent Rory MacDonald to submit to a voluntary drug-testing program. This was somewhat suprising news, as MacDonald has never been accused of PED use.

. @rory_macdonald VADA anti-doping has offered to sponsor our coming fight. I’ve accepted and invite you to help me clean up the sport

. @rory_macdonald VADA results will be released after the fight to ensure the fight happens. Lets get started asap

Rory quickly responded to his opponent’s request, trying to cast away all doubt.

@bjpenndotcom already worried BJ? honestly I think its a great idea 2, and im ready to do the testing for our fight aswell @danawhite

We’ll see how this progesses.
