Anderson da Silva, the Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Middleweight Champion, has responded to a jibe from Michael Bisping.

Recently, Bisping had tweeted Silva to stay out from Viagra. The English mixed martial artist who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship was referring to Silva’s admission that he took a sexually enhancing blue vial and did not used anabolic androgenic steroids after he tested positive for Drostanolone metabolites and Androsterone following his fight with Nick Diaz. A $380,000 fine and a 12-month suspension, retroactive from January 31, were handed to Silva by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Reacting to Bisping’s remark, Silva said he does not have to prove absolutely anything to Bisping or anyone else besides himself. Silva, who holds the longest title defense streak in UFC history, remarked he never needed any illegal substance, steroid or anything like that and also remarked he did made a mistake like everyone does and he had never tested positive before. Silva said he was questioned by the commissioner and it was arrogant for the NAC commissioner to ask him if he had ever been randomly tested before. The Brazilian mixed martial artist said he is excited for the Michael Bisping bout and said a dominant win for him will catapult into title contendership.

Bisping has been a vocal critic of users of performance enhancing drugs throughout his career. The former Cage Rage Light Heavyweight Champion, who is ranked #7 in official UFC middleweight rankings, once said if Cung Le was on some kind of enhancing drug, it only makes my performance seem better, referring to the UFC Fight Night 48 in August but also remarked he would have been outraged and pissed off if he had lost. Bisping has fought no lesser than three opponents who were known users of synthetic testosterone, all of whom took the “shield” of therapeutic-use exemptions for testosterone-replacement therapy. TRT is now banned in MMA and the UFC and Bisping said if people’s testosterone levels can be 10 times higher than what it normally is, of course that’s going to give you an edge.

Bisping said on his radio show he is telling people right now that he is going to destroy Anderson Silva. The Ultimate Fighter 3 Light Heavyweight Tournament winner said his camp is going the best it has ever been and he is performing better. Bisping also remarked he is way better mentally than he has ever been and he is going to get the people of London to cheer and make some goddamn noise and demand that he gets a title shot.

Anderson Silva (33-6 MMA, 15-2 UFC) vs. Michael Bisping (27-7 MMA, 17-7 UFC) will headline the UFC Fight Night 83 card in London, England on February 27th at London’s 02 Arena. The matchup between the two has been brewing for many years but it never came to reality because of the previous position of Silva as UFC champion paired with struggles of Bisping in key bouts.
