Anderson da Silva is a UFC fighters will be under temporary suspension until a disciplinary hearing is conducted on the issue with the dates still being ironed out by the legal counsels of the parties involved.
The Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Middleweight Champion. Silva holds the longest title defense streak in UFC history, which ended in 2013 with 16 consecutive wins and 10 title defenses. Silva, 39, failed his postfight urine test after a unanimous decision win against Nick Diaz at UFC 183 on Jan. 31.
According to the report that the former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has failed a second drug test administered by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Silva failed one test before and one after his victory over Nick Diaz. After his first failed test, Silva said: 'I have not taken any performance-enhancing drugs. My stance on drugs is, and will always be, the same. I m an advocate for a clean sport.'
In a statement Eccles and NSAC Executive Director Bob Bennett said Silva and his camp have yet to respond in writing to the assertion against him. The fighter has 20 days to signal whether or not his camp will dispute the details of the complaint. The NSAC will hold a formal hearing, likely next month, to decide whether to take administrative action.
In his most recent post-fight drug screening, Silva tested positive for Drostolanone, Oxazepam and Temazepam. The latter two are anti-anxiety medications, and although not considered PEDs, they are still banned by the NSAC.
Bennett said I can tell you they re staunch supporters of addressing performance-enhancing drugs, and I m glad they are because they ve financed a number of our tests of even their top-of-the-line fighters that we ve conducted. It says a lot about the UFC. Here they are having us test those guys and some pop positive. We re not really happy about it, and neither are they. It s not good business for them, they lose money. But they continue to go after any and all fighters using PEDs.
