UFC heavyweight fighter Junior Dos Santos says he was devastated when he heard that he failed a drug test.

The performer said he was on his way home from training when he got wind of the report that he tested positive for a diuretic banned by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

“Until I got home, I thought it was a prank, I couldn’t believe it. 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 UFC people the following day and they told me it was a diuretic,” Dos Santos explained.

He claimed that it was a small amount of hydrochlorothiazide that was found in his system. He explained that it was in such a small amount that “it couldn’t even act as a diuretic” on him. He absolved the Agency of blame by admitting that the amount was inconsequential as far as there was contamination.
