Jake Paul refusal to be drug tested for Tommy Fury fight ‘suspect’ and ‘bizarre’ – claims UFC legend Michael Bisping

, Jake Paul refusal to be drug tested for Tommy Fury fight ‘suspect’ and ‘bizarre’ – claims UFC legend Michael Bisping

UFC legend Michael Bisping says it is ‘bizarre’ and ‘suspect’ that Jake Paul will allegedly refuse to be drug tested ahead of his clash with Tommy Fury.

Fury’s father John was the first to claim that the controversial YouTuber had turned down voluntary testing.

UFC legend Michael Bisping has called the YouTuber’s decision not to be drug tested ‘bizarre’

And he says he is convinced that the American is ‘hiding something’ ahead of the December 18 fight.

Paul defeated ex-UFC man Tyron Woodley in August and took part in drug testing for that fight.

But that was on behalf of the Ohio Athletic Commission – which is not the recognised Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

Woodley accused Paul of taking steroids ahead of their bout and claimed he had not been drug tested, despite producing a negative test.

Now Bisping has hit out at Paul’s strange decision to allegedly turn down VADA testing – something the 24-year-old has yet to confirm.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, he said: “Recently we have seen the rise of Jake Paul.

“Jake Paul is doing great things in combat sports and he’s young in his career.

“But I just saw, a moment ago an MMA Junkie article said that he hasn’t allowed drug testing to happen, for his latest against Tommy Fury, which is bizarre.

“He’s put in all kinds of stipulations about ‘you got to change your name to Tommy Fumbles’ and this and that.

“There’s all kinds of things in there, all kinds of stipulations, lots of rules, lots of work for the lawyers to put in, but he refused or said he didn’t want to have VADA testing in there.

“Which is, I don’t know, that’s a little suspect, I don’t know, I mean if you’ve got nothing to hide.”

After being accused of using PEDS during the build-up to Woodley, Paul said: “Yeah so I woke up a couple of mornings ago and my manager sent me that headline and said, ‘Hey hope you see this’.

“So I first swiped up on my phone and typed in ‘what are PEDs’.

“This is honestly hilarious, how many excuses are they gonna make?

“People were saying ‘Ben Askren is going to beat Jake Paul’, ‘Nate Robinson is the betting favourite, he is just a YouTuber’.

“They just know now that I am coming for their five-time UFC champion, I am gonna knock him out and they are trying to make up any excuse they possibly can.

“It’s a real professional fight with commissions and drug testing, so how are these people coming up with that?

“I am looking at it as a compliment as I am making light work of these people, and they are running out of excuses.”
