the whole procedure is setup so WADA/USADA has no responsebility during the drugs test, cause if they touch the bottle and the athlete test positive, the blame it on the collection company, in this case USADA.

Pettis doesn't stand a chance suing USADA over this, cause he signed the WADA code, including a waiver, you can't sue USADA and the UFC over drug testing

USADA are responsible for the equipment the force the fighters to use. They are 100% liable. 

no fucking way, it isn't their equipment. Suing will set back Pettis in lawyer costs

100% it's their equipment, just because they didn't mfg the bottle does not mean they dont have to take responsibility if they require a fighter to use it and fighter cuts themselves.

You can sue anyone for anything you want. Waivers usually don’t mean much.

This is hugely embarrassing in my opinion. I bet the old skool fighters cringe at stuff like this. Imagine Tank Abbots coach trying to get a fight called off over a paper cut?!

If he needed stitches or gets an infection I think his case is furthered. I think there will be some kind of settlement

Get a fight called off? Where does it say that mate? 

He wants USADA to compensate him financially. Why shouldn't he?

Try reading the article then. His coach was begging him to pull out of the Diaz fight.

Damn people are hard on Pettis.  I feel like the alignment of hard work, health, and a million other variable that it takes to be champ is often unsustainable. It’s crazy the heat fighters get for making it all the way to the top and then not staying there until retirement.

Embarrassing? USADA wakes you up at 6am randomly, you have to let them know your whereabouts at all times. They are able to literally show up in your life unannounced at any point and you have to submit a sample. Yes, I know this is part of 'the job' but at some point this gets a little ridiculous.

How many fighters had their fights canceled only to later be cleared. USADA didn't they cover the loss in wages or damage to their reputations.

USADA has completely gone out of their lane as a third party administrator of testing and become somewhat tyrannical in their administration of penalties.

A wise man once said, "Fuck um". And I couldn't agree more.

nope, maybe Pettis can sue the manufacturer, but thats it, its poring money down the drain

E.g.

I build chairs.

Your restaurant buy my chairs.

Your employees do not maintain the chair to standard.

Customer sits on chair, chair breaks, customer falls and breaks his angus. 

Customer will sue your pants off and break your angus.

You can try and sue me and you could win if you can prove my chairs have a history of breaking but since you have been buying my chairs since the beginning and that's the first instance of a break, my lawyer will break your angus too.

not a relevant situation, USADA aren't even allowed to touch the boxes were the collection containers are packed in. its all on the athlete to open them en fill them, etc

They don't "touch" them but they do transport them so yes, it is relevant.

You really don't think a fighter getting a cut and needing stitches hours before a fight due to negligence is a big deal? I'm sure Pettis had nothing better to do.

And Duke Roufus was fighting in a ring before Tank Abbot ever even stepped into a cage.
