UFC 189: Jose Aldo calls the cops on NSAC drug tester, gets him kicked out of Brazil

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Silly little drug tester ... did you think you could just come to Brazil and make Jose Aldo pee in a cup?

The reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight titleholder was recently confronted by a representative of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), who came to Nova Uniao to collect a random urine sample for the UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for July 11, 2015 in Las Vegas.

That's when things got weird.

After forking over a glass of Brazilian lemonade, Aldo and his manager, Andre Pederneiras, called the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) to corroborate the random drug test. Once CABMMA informed "Junior" and Co. they had no knowledge of the proceedings, the police were called.

MMA Fighting has the specifics:

According to Pederneiras, CABMMA COO Cristiano Sampaio contacted the Brazilian federal police and met Pederneiras, Aldo, and Mosier at Nova Uniao. They learned that Mosier is licensed by the Nevada Athletic Commission, however his visa doesn't allow him to work in Brazil. Mosier was issued a $130 dollar fine and has been given eight days to leave the country.

Aldo's sample has since been discarded.

"Junior" will be tested again ahead of his Conor McGregor fight, likely today, by his Brazilian buddies at CABMMA. But don't worry, the pee-pee will be sent to the same lab as the original sample, according to the report, the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Move along folks, nothing to see here.
