Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva (34-6 MMA) is currently waiting to receive his suspension from the NSAC (Nevada State Athletic Commission) for his failed drug test at January’s UFC 183 event in Las Vegas.
The longtime UFC middleweight title holder tested positive for anabolic steroids, while his opponent Nick Diaz ended up flunking for marijuana.
Despite their failed drug tests and pending suspensions, “The Spider” is already asking UFC President Dana White to set up a rematch with Diaz in his native Brazil:
“I believe that there is some things that are unfinished between me and Nick Diaz, I now hope that you, Dana White can accept my request and make a rematch possible in my county, Brazil.” Wrote Anderson on his official Instagram page.
No word yet from Dana White regarding a response to Anderson’s request.
