    USADA announced today that UFC Athlete Paulo Costa and one of his Athlete Support Personnel, Carlos Costa, of Contagem, Brazil, have each accepted a six-month sanction for violations of the UFC® Anti-Doping Policy for use and administration, respectively, of a prohibited method.

    Based on video and other corroborating evidence, USADA determined that on June 2, 2017, Paulo Costa, 27, received an intravenous infusion (IV) of permitted substances, including saline solution and a stomach medication, of more than 100 mL per 12-hour period after weigh-in for UFC 212 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, without a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). On November 3, 2017, Paulo Costa again received an IV infusion of permitted substances of more than 100 mL per 12-hour period after weigh-in for UFC 217 in New York City, New York, without a TUE.

    Both infusions were administered by Carlos Costa.

    Seriously though... and substantial assistance? Where are the results of this snitching from Paulo and jones? I know they'll say it's confidential, but it just seems like an excuse for a cover up at this point.

    They don't know what they were having in their fluid bags because they didn't show them to USADA before using.

    No but they have been used as a way of flushing the body to mask drug use, so they created a test that can pick up the use of IV (Costa advertised his use so this wasn't needed in this case)

    IV usage is in the very low end of offending. It was legal until recently. Not all infractions are created equal

    IV's can be use to micro dose peds and make them more undetectable
