FLOYD MAYWEATHER and Conor McGregor have both been tested for banned substances the same amount of times in the lead up to their August 26 clash, according to the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

UFC star McGregor will make his professional boxing debut against Mayweather in Las Vegas, and after the fight was confirmed, USADA announced in July that both men would undergo ‘robust’ testing.

USADA also confirmed that there would be no limit to the amount of times each fighter could be tested, and that these tests would be no-advance notice and round the clock. So far, both men have been tested 12 times since July.
