There is no sac-sac-mate - Fischer himself played the Dragon, Najdorf and Dragondorf. He is basically contradicting himself.
Firstly, I'm not sure how that would constitute a contradiction. It's no contradiction to declare an opening refuted and then play it anyway - in fact, he famously did this with the King's Gambit. It's a surprise perhaps, but not a contradiction.
There are no games recorded (assuming ChessGames.com didn't forget some of his games) in which he played the Dragon directly.
I can't find any in which he plays the Dragon by transposition, but I'm not much of a Fischer fan so perhaps I just don't know where to look.
He did play against it sometimes, and he also clocked up a few losses against it too.
Dragon is refuted
