Conor McGregor probably took PEDs, Conor McGregor seems to say

Well, this is a new one. After months of speculation on exactly what he was up to when the UFC apparently let him opt out of the USADA testing pool while recovering from the horrible leg injury he suffered at UFC 264, Conor McGregor appeared to admit in a flurry of tweets last week that he took a bunch of PEDs. He also appeared to say “how dare you” to anybody who questioned him about it. Frankly, we’re not sure if this is stupid or genius, but it certainly gives us a lot to talk about.

Plus, Larissa Pacheco forces game four against Kayla Harrison and the UFC is back with a pretty OK looking TV card this Saturday.
