Paulo Poracinha passed the scales without any problems this time, but got into trouble with the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) on Friday morning, in Salt Lake City, on the eve of UFC 278. The Brazilian fighter, who was in the first platoon to reach the scales, sent out an “f* * USADA” after hitting 84.1 kg in a duel with Luke Rockhold, an American who made the same weight, fell short of the 84.4 kg maximum for middleweight. According to Porashinha, members of the agency knocked on his room before 7 a.m. (local time) for auditions while he was finishing his weight loss.

According to the report fighting, the USA agency knocked on Porashinha’s room before 7am to collect her urine and blood for testing. The Brazilian cut the weight with a blanket and had no fluid to urinate in his body. There was also no way to draw blood because Porashinha was dehydrated. The regulators stayed 40 minutes in the fighter’s room, but then gave up.
The Borrachinha team complained a lot when they stated that Team USADA had made Borrachinha stress at the time they claim was unnecessary. After the weight operations, USADA followed him to complete the tests while Borrachinha was rehydrating. The fighter also spoke about the matter on his social networks.
-F*** The USADA President who sent his clients this morning to my room at 6am to take my blood!!! I was losing weight and very dehydrated and they wanted to take my blood! F*** these guys!!! Purashinha wrote I’ve never caught a USADA exam and I don’t need that shit.
Paulo Poracinha also reached the scales with a bottle where he showed a sticker sheet written in English “secret juice”, also to the provocation of those who always claim that Brazilians use some banned substance to get the body in their possession. The truth is that Borrachinha is one of the most tested fighters since he arrived in the UFC and has yet to show positive results. Check the Brazilian’s weight in a video posted on his social networks.
