    Every three months fighters have to detail their schedule for the coming quarter, noting where they are overnight, and where they are during the day (gym, job, school, etc). Any changes can be made readily using a mobile app. The process is so that fighters can be subjected to random, comprehensive, out-of-competition drug testing.

    The first time a fighter fails to identify where he or she is merits a call from Novitzky. Second strike Novitzky flies to where the fighter is, and "tails" them for several days, to make sure they are filling the app in correctly. Third time the fighter faces suspension.

    Dude could get himself arrested for stalking.

    No, you just have to save it and submit a sample for testing

    Well people has been making a huge fuzz about drug testing, honestly I always thought ignorance is blizz and fight night testing for everyone and with random drug testing for championship fights was enough. But the UFC is taking this shit seriously

    He better be ready for counter-surveillance from Brazilian special forces when he tries to go down and test Aldo

    Lol. Tell us where you are, 365 days a year. Every three months, fill out this form saying exactly what you will do every day. Oh and by the way, here is $2,500 for your total sponsorship money.

    Yep, I think its clear now just how bad the problem was if it ever was even in doubt.
    I am pretty sure the sport as a spectacle is going to suffer and secondly a hell of a lot more cancelled fights and guys getting injured.

    Novitzky kinda looks like an alien.

    Imagine him tailing GSP.

    Seems he doesn't have a very busy job if he has the time to tail a fighter...
