This kind of thing is often done in other industries. The commissions don’t need one of their people at the gym every time, they can train a local technician to monitor the sampling and then conduct regular audits to make sure the protocol is being adhered to. A single official could oversee the sampling of dozens of gyms and hundreds of fighters.
This might be too burdensome for smaller gyms, and PEDs might be less of an issue in the minor leagues, but at the UFC level there should be no problem. If a house shows a pattern of trying to game the system they would stand a chance of having their certification pulled, this would provide an incentive for everyone to help everyone else stay kosher.
