“I fight clean. It’s crazy because USADA is here for everybody. Everybody is tested. Derek Brunson talks a lot of sh*t about me but he (won’t fight) because he has fear, he’s scared. He don’t want to fight against me, so he creates excuses. ‘Ah, you don’t fight clean,’ but I have my tests with USADA. I called UFC Brazil to send me all my tests and put on my social media. I have more than 15 tests.”
