    “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.

    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)
