According to USADA officials, precautions will be in place for UFC 249 and the rest of the UFC schedule, which also includes shows on May 13 and May 16, but the fighters will be tested like usual.

“As we’ve stated, testing at UFC events is an essential part of a fair fight,” USADA officials said in a statement to MMA Fighting on Friday. “We will have doping control officers at UFC 249, and will do everything in our power to conduct testing at future events, of course taking appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of everyone involved.”
