The much-anticipated fight between Daniel Cormier and Brock Lesnar might not be official yet. However, Lesnar’s entry into the USADA testing pool has added fuel to the possibility.
Though it is a positive sign, Cormier thinks that things are far from done. During his recent appearance on the Slip N’ Dip Podcast, Cormier talked about the importance of Lesnar staying clean.
“Well I think he had a USADA exemption or something, I’m not exactly sure, but now he’s having to be tested like every other athlete. He’s got to be tested for six straight months and trust me, they will test you. I’ve been tested 32 times USADA came on board, 32 times, so he’s going to get tested. If he’s clean for six months then obviously he’s not doing steroids so let’s keep our fingers crossed,” he said. (via MMA Nytt)
Cormier also went on to talk about how he deserves to be alongside names like Demetrious Johnson and Georges St. Pierre.
“Demetrious [Johnson], Georges St-Pierre, these guys have none of these bad things tied to their names and these are the guys I should share the conversation with. I’ve never had any negatives and I’ve never had to go in front of any commission and explain why my test came up messed up. That’s why I should be in the conversation because I’ve done things the correct way. I’ve been tested by USADA since 2001 and I’ve never once had anything come up. It’s really not that hard to not test positive. Whether it be tainted supplements or anything else. You just don’t cheat. Don’t cheat and you don’t fail the test. It’s really not that hard,” he said.
