Jeff Novitsky Reponds To Conor McGregor's USADA Request

Jeff Novitsky has responded to Conor McGregor's unusual request from USADA.

McGregor had been querying receiving a "50 clean tests completed jacket" but didn't seem to have the best intentions for the jacket should he get one. Novitsky, who is the VP of Athletic Health and Performance, is most known for his role in the Lance Armstrong doping scandal and got dragged into a Twitter beef with "The Notorious" and Nate Diaz. The former lightweight champion was teasing Diaz for his failed USADA test that was since explained as a tainted supplement.
