Ovince St. Preux has no problem undergoing random drug tests leading up to his light heavyweight bout against Patrick Cummins at UFC on Fox 15 “Rockhold vs. Machida.”
In a report from MMAFighting.com on Tuesday, Cummins suggested the two fighters submit to random tests as a result of the recent spate of failed tests.
“These failed drug tests are getting out of control,” Cummins said. “OSP, let’s do the right thing with random [World Anti-Doping Agency] testing like I did my entire wrestling career and let the fans see the results.”
Speaking with Sherdog.com on Tuesday, St. Preux said he had no problem with the idea.
“I’ll do the test. It’s no problem for me,” St. Preux told Sherdog.com. “He said that he has been getting tested his whole wrestling career. Well, I’ve been getting tested for my entire football career. I'll take a test every day.”
Prior to taking up mixed martial arts, “OSP” played defensive end and linebacker for the Tennessee Volunteers from 2001 to 2004. College football is regulated by the NCAA, which utilizes WADA standards.
The UFC is slated to address the recent slew of failed drug test during a press conference on Wednesday.
