Novitzky: USADA ‘Nonetheless Evaluating’ Costa Case

Final Combating Championship (UFC) Vice President of Athlete Well being and Efficiency and former IRS shitbag, Jeff Novitzky, refuses to touch upon the curious case of middleweight contender, Paulo Costa, then proceeded to remark anyway throughout yesterday’s look on UFC Unfiltered.

As most combined martial arts (MMA) followers are conscious, the Brazilian was fined practically $10,000 by New York State Athletic Fee (NYSAC) after “failing to adjust to Fee guidelines and insurance policies concerning the use and disclosure of non-performance enhancing substances whereas licensed.”

Costa claims he took Plasil forward of UFC 217 to assist his ailing tummy.

“I don’t have any touch upon that,” Novitzky advised hosts Jim Norton and Matt Serra (through MMA Combating). “My understanding is that New York has issued him a effective or a sanction and that USADA continues to be evaluating this. It’s not till circumstances are adjudicated and resolved that we touch upon them. So I’m not gonna touch upon that one proper now.”

Longtime rival, Yoel Romero, is chargeable for planting the “steroids” seed.

Costa was alleged to combat “Soldier of God” on the UFC occasion this weekend in Ft. Lauderdale, however was mysteriously bumped from the cardboard and continues to be ready for NYSAC to shut the books on his 2017 penalty.

Paying the effective would in all probability expedite that course of, however because the invoice stays excellent, there’s probability the Brazilian is contesting the cost. No one concerned needs to remark, so all we will do at this level is speculate.

That mentioned, I’ll be very interested by what United States Anti-Doping Company (USADA) has to say in spite of everything is alleged and achieved.
