  Anderson Silva Is A “Coward”, Says Ben Rothwell

Top-ranked UFC heavyweight contender Ben Rothwell has called Anderson Silva a “coward” for not admitting his guilt after receiving a 12 month suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission for using anabolic androgenic steroids.

Rothwell said Anderson Silva destroyed his legacy not because he was busted but because he continually denied everything to show just what a coward he is. Ben Rothwell added he has no respect for Silva and added Silva is a cheat and is not a man.

Silva, the Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Middleweight Champion, holds the longest title defense streak in UFC history. He tested positive for Drostanolone and Androstane after his fight against Nick Diaz at UFC 183. Silva beat Diaz via unanimous decision but the win was overturned to no contest after his use of performance enhancing drugs. The former middleweight champion pleaded his innocence and said he tested positive because of a mysterious sexually enhancing “blue vial” that he acquired from a friend in Thailand.

In 2013, Ben Rothwell himself tested positive for elevated levels of Testosterone. He was suspended for a period of nine months but took full responsibility for his actions and vowed to never cheat again.

In another development, Michael Bisping said he is no longer interested in Anderson Silva. Bisping (27-7 MMA, 17-7 UFC) said the drug test failure of Silva has changed his desire to fight against Silva. Bisping added he believes that a person does not make a decision to try a new thing called steroids at the age of 39 and Silva must have been on the juice the whole time. Bisping, who is arguably the most famous fighter to have never received a UFC title shot, said he is not sure if he would accept a fight with the man who is considered by many as one of the greatest of all time.

Bisping added nobody expected Anderson Silva to test positive and he has always been a fantastic fighter, always been a fan favorite. The English mixed martial artist who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship added it is ridiculous that Anderson’s positive test was the first time he was ever tested out of competition and he failed it. Bisping also remarked Silva came up with every excuse under the sun, including Viagra, and he looked the fool and added he wouldn’t fight Silva or anyone else that has a history of taking steroids.

Silva was recently criticized for laughing when his team made fun of Steven Seagal, action movie star and former mentor of Anderson. Seagal has always been a figure of ridicule within the MMA community. The 63-year-old started working with Silva and Lyoto Machida in 2010 and served as a mentor and teacher to the former UFC champions. However, Seagal has been absent from the mixed martial arts sphere since he started taking credit for some of their techniques. Anderson Silva started to distance himself from Seagal after he took praise for the front kick Silva used to knockout Vitor Belfort at UFC 126.

  Silva Banned For One Year, Blames Positive Drug Tests On Sexual Performance Supplements

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission for one year, retroactive to the date of the fight, and a fine of $380,000 was imposed on him. Considered one of the greatest UFC fighters, Silva admitted to taking Oxazepam, a benzodiazepine that is used for treating anxiety and acute alcohol withdrawal, as well as Temazepam that is used for treating insomnia.

After his suspension was announced, Silva’s name was erased from rankings announced by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Silva has claimed that his positive drug test before and after his UFC 183 bout against Nick Diaz in January was because of a supplement used to improve sexual performance.

Anderson Silva was all set to appear before the Nevada State Athletic Commission in his defence after testing positive to anabolic steroids Drostanolone and Androstane in a pre-fight drug test. Silva also tested positive for Drostanolone and the anti-anxiety medication Oxazepam and Temazepam that are used for treating sleep deprivation in a post-fight urinalysis. It is widely believed that the representatives of Anderson Silva are expected to argue that the ex-UFC middleweight champion was not trying to improve his performance inside the Octagon but he was trying to improve his bedroom performance.

The UFC fighter faces a fine up to $250,000 and the result of his bout with Diaz will be changed to a No Contest after a request by the attorney general ofNevada, Christopher Eccles.  During the same fight, Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites for the third time. The former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion and former WEC Welterweight Champion failed a pre-fight test for marijuana against lightweight champion Takanori Gomi after the news came out the Nevada State Athletics Commission on April 10, 2007. Diaz tested positive for marijuana again in 2012 in a post-fight drug test after his fight with Carlos Condit who defeated Diaz via unanimous decision.

Silva, who holds the record for the longest UFC championship defence streak, is counting on documents that suggest the testing of the said sexual enhancement supplement was contaminated with exogenous anabolic agent (Drostanolone metabolite). Silva’s lawyer Michael Alonso remarked the other supplement Silva was using could have contained Androstane. Silva is also expected to include inconsistencies in drug tests including two tests — one pre-fight and one post-fight — that Anderson Silva passed.

Silva believes B.J. Penn, his long-time friend and former UFC Lightweight Champion and UFC Welterweight Champion, to be the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the sport’s history.

The Brazilian Mixed Martial Artist, who is regarded by many including UFC President Dana White as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, started martial arts at the young age of 7 and trained Tae Kwon Do and earned a black belt by the age of 18 years. Silva also has a black belt in Judo and made his debut at Ultimate Fight Night on June 28, 2006 where he faced Chris Leben and knocked him out a series of pinpoint strikes that were followed by a final knee strike into the first round.

  Anderson Silva Subject To Out-Of-Competition Testing

Anderson Silva Subject To Out-Of-Competition Testing

UFC legend and former middleweight champion Anderson Silva is ready to get “embarrassed” while trying to compete for a spot in the Brazilian taekwondo team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The former UFC middleweight champion will be subject to random, out-of-competition drug testing for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

On January 9, Anderson Silva tested positive to Drostanolone metabolites during a random out-of-competition test in the lead-up to his victory over Nick Diaz. The 39-year-old Silva, who is regarded by many to be the best MMA fighter in history, won by a unanimous points decision against Diaz as part of UFC 183 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett also disclosed that Androstane, also a banned substance under the World Anti-Doping Agency’s rules, was found in Silva’s January 9 tests. Diaz, who was also tested, tested positive for marijuana metabolites after the same fight.

The UFC confirmed the initial findings on its website and said the UFC organization was notified on February 3, 2015 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that Anderson Silva tested positive for Drostanolone metabolites on his January 9 out of competition drug test. It was added that it is the understanding of the UFC that further testing will be conducted by the Commission to confirm these preliminary results and it was said that Anderson Silva has been an amazing champion and a true ambassador of the sport of mixed martial arts and the UFC, in Brazil as well as around the world. UFC is disappointed to learn of these initial results. The website statement also reads that the UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by its athletes.

The UFC also confirmed positive test of Diaz in its statement and said it has been notified by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that Nick Diaz has tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 183 on January 31 in Las Vegas. This is the third time Nick Diaz has tested positive for drugs related to marijuana.

It was the first time in the 18-year, 34-victory career of Anderson Silva that he tested positive for a banned substance. It is interesting to note that Silva has previously campaigned for a lifetime ban on the users of performance enhancing drugs.

Secretary Marco Aurelio Klein of the Brazilian Agency of Doping Control (ABCD) said if Silva is competing in official tournaments at the Brazilian Taekwondo Federation (CBTKD), he will be under the ABCD’s jurisdiction, so, like any other athlete, he can be subject to in- and out-of-competition tests by the Brazilian Agency of Doping Control. Klein added Anderson tested positive for anabolic steroids and, in this condition, he has advantages over other athletes who don’t use this banned substance. The ABCD secretary added for us it doesn’t appear to be the best message to other athletes who follow the anti-doping rules ahead of the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics in Rio.

  Half Of MMA Fighters Could Be Doping, Says UFC Commentator

UFC’s veteran commentator, Joe Rogan, has stunned all by saying that over half of MMA fighters are doping. Rogan made this comment in the wake of recent failed drug tests of star fighters Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz, and Hector Lombard.

Hector Lombard, the Cuban-Australian professional mixed martial artist and former Olympic judoka who competes as a Welterweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, tested positive for anabolic steroids following his UFC 182 victory over Josh Burkman on January 3 in Las Vegas.

Lombard tested positive for was Desoxymethyltestosterone, commonly known as Madol. Former middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva tested positive for two anabolic steroids: Drostanolone and Androstane. Silva’s competitor Nick Diaz failed a test for marijuana metabolites while UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently tested positive for cocaine metabolites.

The #1 contender in the official UFC middleweight rankings, Silva holds the longest title defense streak in UFC history and has 12 post-fight bonus awards. Silva claimed he has not taken any performance enhancing drugs and added he has been thoroughly tested many times and have never had a positive test.

Firas Zahabi, the coach of the semi-retired UFC star George St-Pierre who is a strong advocate of clean sports, remarked after Silva’s drug scandal that he wants the sport to be clean else a guy is going to die in the Octagon one day.

On the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Rogan said the UFC and MMA in general is a steroid epidemic. The commentator added they have started this really stringent testing and everybody is getting popped left and right. Rogan said it is one of the things fighters have been saying for a long time, that everyone is on steroids or a huge percentage and added the number (is) 50 percent, 60 percent, whatever it is they are on anabolic steroids.

 A black belt in Taekwando and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Rogan cited the physical strain of intense training as the main reason behind athletes succumbing to steroid use. The veteran commentator said fighters will sometimes train three times a day and added maybe they’ll run, do sprints in the morning, and then they’ll do some kind of strength and conditioning in the afternoon and also remarked then they’ll do wrestling or jiu-jitsu at night. Rogan added then they’ll vary and the next day they might do kickboxing in the morning and running in the afternoon, then weight lifting at night.

The UFCs veteran commentator also remarked there’s not enough time in the day, and there’s not enough time to recover and so that’s when comes in Dr. Feelgood, he comes along, and bang. However, Rogan condemned use of banned drugs and brush aside claims that the supposed drug use case of Anderson Silva was to help him return from injury. Rogan said so if he’s 39 years old and he breaks his leg, you’re looking at a long-ass recovery period or you take steroids and you recover in nine months instead of 15 months or fill in the blank. He added that could be what’s going on, but the reality is it is illegal and said if it takes you 15 months, the excuse cannot be that someone is going to take some illegal drugs so he heals quicker as no one is ever allowed to take steroids.

  Anderson Silva Denies Steroid Use

Anderson Silva, Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Middleweight Champion, has failed an out-of-competition drug test. The UFC legend, however, denied using anabolic steroids.

The 39-year-old had tested positive for the steroid Drostanolone during a random out-of-competition test administered by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar confirmed the positive test and said Silva’s lab report revealed that he also tested positive for a second steroid, Androstane. Aguilar also disclosed that Diaz (26-10) tested positive for marijuana metabolites during a post-fight drug test. Silva (34-6) defeated Diaz via unanimous decision at UFC 183 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Marcio Tannure, the medical director of Brazil’s governing body for mixed martial arts, remarked Anderson Silva denies using steroids. The laboratory that conducted the tests is now performing further evaluation of Silva’s samples.

Silva believes there was “contamination” or a “mistake by the laboratory” that handled his test. Silva said in a statement released by Ed Soares, his manager, said he has been competing in this sport for a very long time and this was his 19th fight in the UFC. Silva added he had been thoroughly tested many times and have never had a positive test. He also denied using performance enhancing drugs and said his stance on drugs is and will always be the same as he is an advocate for a clean sport.

According to an announcement by UFC, the former middleweight champion tested positive in an out-of-competition test on January 9. This announcement was made just a few days after Anderson Silva defeated Nick Diaz in Las Vegas in his return to the cage after recovering from a broken lower left leg 13 months ago.

In a statement, UFC President Dana White said Silva for now would continue in his role as a coach for “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil,” and added that UFC will wait for the investigative process before taking a decision. White added Anderson Silva has been one of the greatest athletes this sport has ever seen and added Silva has had a long and distinguished career in mixed martial arts. The UFC President went on to remark that Anderson has never tested positive for a banned substance in his nine years with the UFC and we want to ensure that Anderson gets his due process and we will support him during this time.

Silva faces a disciplinary hearing in Las Vegas on February 17, when his license to fight is likely to be suspended. He may face a nine-month suspension. On the other hand, Diaz may be face a heavier suspension and fine as this is his third doping offence.

Former middleweight and light heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen said he believes the entire career of Silva is fair game to question. Sonnen himself received suspension after he failed two separate random drug tests for a ‘cocktail’ that included human growth hormone (HGH), recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO), and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Sonnen remarked as soon as you test positive for something people will want to say it was over your whole career and he believes that is fair and added if you get hit with something it runs you all the way back in time.
