After many rumors, the results of doping tests UFC Sao Paulo left. According TATAME found, the name of the athlete is caught Thiago Tavares. Our sources, however, need not know the substance used for light weight. His suspension will be nine months. |
Over a 10 year career, this is the first time that Tavares is caught in a doping test. After topple two consecutive wins, both in Rio de Janeiro, the athlete from Santa Catarina was defeated by Khabib Nurmagomedov event in Sao Paulo. Besides his other seven athletes were tested by the newly created Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission.
Tavares is the sixth Brazilian to be caught for doping in the UFC. Before him, the athletes Pitbull Thiago, Thiago Silva (twice), Rousimar Toquinho and Vinicius Spartan Hermes Franca tested positive for illegal substances. Among all, and only Pitbull Silva won their respective fights.
Not surprised. After Dana said that Vitor was NOT the culprit, he was my first guess. No big impact, especially considering how he got finished.
