Man, that was a dumbass move. Testing positive is one thing, trying to cover it up and getting caught is going to get him fried. If he test positive that's 6 months to a year tops, we've had a bunch of fighters in the past test positive and that's all they get on their suspensions. Problem is when you to cover it up and get caught the commission will come down on you like a ton of bricks, you're toast.
Sucks for Thiago big time, I like watching the dude fight.
keep in mind, he's already almost three months layoff, which means (I believe) that he will only have another 9 to serve. considering he probably wouldn't have fought for another 4-6 months anyway, this isn't that huge of a deal. And hey, now he has plenty of time to rehab his back to full strength.
Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
I had the impression that he said before the last fight that his back was finally fully healed.
Sounds like an excuse to me. He was pretty big against Vera so he probably used roids to grow muscle and did not cycle it properly.

I'm glad he finally admitted to cheating. But first he took the substances, attempted to conceal their use, then swore he was clean when it was learned that his sample was still processing.
So it's hard for me to give him too many points for honesty, or even believe that it was therapy for his back. It's just as likely he's just trying to make the best out of a bad situation now that he's been caught.
