Brandon Rios (sort of) addresses failed VADA drug test for banned substance

Brandon Rios failed a VADA drug test after his fight with Manny Pacquiao in Macao, and now is claiming that VADA made him give his urine sample in a drinking glass, though he's not so much explaining the substance that was found.

Brandon Rios has been pretty quiet about his failed VADA drug test, but now he's saying stuff. Which is how I'm choosing to put it, because he's not really addressing the actual failed drug test so much as saying that VADA are dicks or whatever.

Here's what Rios told Elie Seckbach (via Chris Robinson):

"We went to the press conference, did all that shit that we had to do and he should have had everything ready. We went to the room and I said ‘Dude, I've got to take a piss now.' He said ‘Let me call them to get the stuff up here.' What the fuck, I've got to take a piss."

Rios claims that he waited up to half an hour for the VADA representative to bring the necessary gear and was later caught off guard when he was told to give his sample in a random drinking glass.

"Now, take a piss in this glass cup, this drinking glass cup and when they come, we'll transfer it into that plastic container and then we'll transfer it into the A and B cups. So I did that, they transferred and did all that sh*t, and all of a sudden I came out positive. And when I took the piss for the Chinese I came out negative. What the fuck? That's horrible."

... "They fucked up. They came to my room unprepared. They made me piss in a regular drinking glass. They're trying to point fingers at other people but they don't point the finger at themselves. It's not just me; it's a bad reputation on our team."

None of this explains why there would be methylhexanamine in his system, unless there was some in the drinking glass, or unless, uh, VADA planted it there? I'm not sure what the upside would be for VADA to do that. The fight already happened and it's not like Rios won.
