McGregor went off at USADA in a series of deleted tweets about his current situation. He wrote, “This is my issue. I’ve not lied once. Nor have I tested positive. Ever. I have over 70 clean tests under this program, yet they are constantly coming out after I speak in a manner that makes it seem I am lying. It’s ridiculous. F**k used. You are in The Bin.” 

With the USADA issue unresolved, McGregor’s return is yet to have a concrete date and confirmation.
