Anderson Silva tests positive for steroids!‏

Yesterday, the NSAC announced that former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva tested positive for 2 performance enhancing drugs following his victory over Nick Diaz at last weekend’s UFC 183 event in Las Vegas.

“The Spider” was tested for the banned substances on January 9, 2015, but according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission the results of those tests were only received yesterday (February 4), which is why Anderson was allowed to compete at last Saturday’s event.

A day after his failed test, Silva is denying ever taking drostanolone and androstane in a statement through his doctor Marcio Tannure via MMAFighting:

“Anderson told me he’s disappointed, upset because he didn’t use steroids. He will ask for the confirmation test because he believes the only explanation is a contamination or a mistake from the lab. He told me: ‘I have an impeccable career history and I wouldn’t want to tarnish my image.’”

“It’s too soon to judge. He has the right to a confirmation test and two other results. The Nevada Athletic Commission hasn’t talked yet, and the press is already judging him. The process isn’t over yet. If the whole process was already over, he would have already been suspended.”
Anderson Silva is expected to make an appearance at a Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting scheduled for February 17, 2015. It is expected that the NSAC will hand “The Spider” a suspension at that time.

Has Silva’s recent drug test failure forever tarnished his legacy?

A rematch between heavyweight sluggers Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (30-11-2 MMA) and Gabriel Gonazaga (16-9 MMA) will headline April’s “UFC Fight Night 64” event in Poland.

UFC officials announced the booking earlier today.

“Cro Cop” returns to the UFC after compiling a 3-1 record outside of the promotion. Mirko was last seen in the octagon at October of 2011’s UFC 137 event, where he suffered a third-round TKO loss to Roy Nelson.

Filipovic re-signed with the UFC just days after Bellator had shown interest in inking the veteran heavyweight to a deal.

Meanwhile, Gabriel “Napal” Gonzaga will be looking to end a two-fight losing skid when he rematches “Cro Cop” this April. Gonzaga was last seen in action at December’s UFC on FOX 13 event, where he suffered a first-round TKO loss to Matt Mitrione.

UFC Fight Night 64 takes place April 11 live from Krakow Arena in Poland. The entire event will air on UFC Fight Pass.

In addition to the headliner, UFC officials also announced that a light heavyweight bout between Jimi Manuwa and Jan Blachowicz will also take place on the card.

Tarec Saffiedine has been forced out of his scheduled UFC Fight Night 60 headlining bout with Matt Brown due to an injury.

Saffiedine, the last Strikeforce welterweight champion, has only fought twice in the UFC over the course of his two-year tenure with the promotion.

Multiple injuries have been the cause of Saffiedine’s long layoffs.

UFC Fight Night 60 is set to go down on February 14, at the 1STBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

A replacement opponent for Matt Brown is currently being sought by UFC officials.
