The UFC’s partnership with the United States Anti-Doping Agency is nearing its eighth year.
In 2022, USADA tested a total of 755 mixed martial artists a combined 4,183 times. While many athletes were randomly tested less than 10 times, some were tested two dozen – and some others, even more. The totals represented 76 fewer tests and 11 more athletes than in 2021.
With testing data available on USADA’s official website, here are the 12 fighters who were tested the most from Jan. 1 to Dec. 29, 2022.
