    "Rogerio Bontorin tested positive for a diuretic and will be forced to stay on the sidelines for some time, MMA Fighting has confirmed following a report from Combate."



    "According to the report, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) found hydrochlorothiazide, a banned diuretic, in an out-of-competition sample from early May. A source on Bontorin’s team said they are working to prove it was caused by a tainted supplement, hoping to reduce his suspension to six months."

    "A long list of UFC fighters have tested for hydrochlorothiazide in the past. Former champions Anderson Silva and Junior dos Santos, as well as Jennifer Maia, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Guido Cannetti, were able to prove tainted supplements as source of contamination."

    "Bontorin last fought in May 15, winning a decision over Matt Schnell in a short-notice bantamweight bout. The Brazilian fighter, who missed weight at 137 pounds for that bout, is currently ranked No. 8 in the official UFC flyweight list."

    Damn bro that's fucking rough. Dude had to cheat to make weight a weighclass above him and STILL missed it.
    I get it's short notice, but 3 weeks notice and he had a lot of trouble making 135. Hope he fixes his weight issues, because it's not gonna get any easier from here and he's not even 30 yet.

    Diaruitic during out of competition and not during a weight cut?

    doesn’t make much sense

    edit Nevermind. Out of completion just means not fight day. Seems this was like a week before weigh ins which makes sense. Thought it was a time he didn’t even have a fight scheduled

    A positive diabetes diagnosis is no joke. Hopefully it's Type 2. I wish this guy all the best going forward.

    Instead of diuretics they should just eat at some really shitty hot dog stand.
