Looks like Thiago Silva pissed away more than just an opportunity.

The UFC light heavyweight contender was recently popped by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for submitting a urine sample that was "inconsistent with that of a human" following his unanimous decision win over Brandon Vera at UFC 125 back on Jan. 1.

And although he initially maintained his innocence following the incident, he eventually came clean and decided to accept the consequences for his actions.

Wow what a punishment especially for a first time offender

Mma and boxing need a universal order or a 3 strike system

You can have people like sherk and sonnen get 6 months while others get a year
At least he keeps his job in ufc
And 6 months of ufc events are already booked.

I totally agree with his punishment and think this should be the standard, I just wish it was the same for all who popped......I hope people will learn from his mistakes, but I doubt it.
