Statement from USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart on
UFC Anti-Doping Program
June 3, 2015
“Today is a huge win for the athletes in the UFC as they set a new standard for all professional sport in protecting the rights and health of clean athletes and the integrity of competition.
The UFC has taken a bold and courageous leap forward for the good of its athletes in developing a comprehensive and cutting edge anti-doping policy expressly modeled on the key elements of the WADA Anti-Doping Program and by having it run by an independent and transparent National Anti-Doping Organization. USADA looks forward to supporting clean athletes in this sport, as in all sport, to achieve success on the playing field fairly and safely.”
Beginning on July 1, 2015, USADA will conduct the year-round independent anti-doping program for all UFC athletes. USADA is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental agency whose sole mission is to preserve the integrity of competition, inspire true sport, and protect the rights of athletes. The anti-doping program run by USADA for UFC athletes will include education, science and research, testing, and results management.
The policies below include the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, as well as the specific Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE), Whereabouts, and Arbitration policies. These policies are designed to best protect the rights of all the clean athletes competing in the UFC.
