“Until I got home, I thought it was a prank, I couldn’t believe it,” dos Santos said. “I talked to my wife and she told me USADA had notified me. I said ‘For the love of God, it can’t be possible. What could I test positive for?’ I called up the UFC people the following day and they told me it was a diuretic. It was such a small amount of it, it couldn’t even act as a diuretic in my system. It even took me a while to urinate on the day I had to take the test, so it wasn’t acting as a diuretic that day.

“But they found it and the rule is the same for everyone. Not matter how little of it they found. This certainly shows that there was a contamination. They had nothing else to do but to notify me and pull me out of the fight.”

Isadora Santos, Junior dos Santos’ wife [I assume the new one]: He’s a heavyweight, but every single detail makes a difference. He has to eat the best way possible to perform at his best. He didn’t pay much attention to his diet before, but I started to take care of that, and his supplements, and he loved it. He started to feel better and perform better. I cook his meals, and when I go to his fights, I cook for him so he doesn’t need to go outside the hotel for it.

Why would he be using a diuretic does it aid in anything other than cutting weight?

I do like junior, his fight with Cain broke my heart because as heavyweights he was marginally my favorite over Cain but only just.

That was when I was actually into the hw division

He must've gotten some of Bones tainted cocaine

I think diuretics can help mask steroids/PEDs in the drug tests. I'm sure someone else can explain it in more detail, but I think that's the deal-e-o.

The victim card is the way to go these days.
Seems to put that doubt in some peoples head. Too many fighters cry wolf, so we can't take anyones word these days.

I gather Polygraph tests (Lie detector) are not fool proof, but if a fighter was willing to do a test, that would at least help with their reputation. I would respect that, but would always have in the back of my head "was the polygrapth analyzer paid to fake the test :smirk:"

That's the way most of those over the counter drinks people take to pass drug tests work, they are a diuretic and flush your kidneys out so your urine is so diluted the tests either:
a. Don't pick up any illegal substances
or
b. The substance is detected but under the allowable limit(i.e. marijuana or whatever)
