Junior dos Santos Wants USADA to Change Its Policy After Being Exonerated

Former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos was scheduled to face Francis Ngannou at UFC 215 in September 2017. He was pulled from the event after being flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for a potential violation.

On April 25, dos Santos was cleared of any wrongdoing. He’s sat on the sidelines for ten months and wants the agency to change its policy on handing out automatic suspensions.

“They shouldn’t take you out of the fight based on, it depends on what they found on you. Like in my case, they found little amounts, traces of diuretic, a cheap diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide. So based on that, they shouldn’t just take me out of the fight. They should do the investigation, but they should keep me fighting,” he said during an appearance on UFC Tonight.

“If I get declared guilty at the end of the investigation, then they could double the penalty. But don’t take me out. Don’t stop my life based on, of course, what I take,” added dos Santos.
