Yet again Thiago Silva has failed his post-fight drug test following a win. This time it's for marijuana metabolites after his 3rd round submission win against Stanislav Nedkov.

For the 2nd time in as many wins, UFC light-heavyweight Thiago Silva is in trouble. Against Brandon Vera in 2011 he was caught using a urine adulterant, and as a result lost his win against Vera and was suspended for a year. Now having won via 3rd round submission against Stanislav Nedkov, he's been busted for marijuana metabolites according to Mike Bohn.

Seriously, ONE MONTH is all you have to stop smoking weed to piss clean, even less if you aren't a heavy smoker, I would imagine that for fighter's the time would be a little less, as for all the training their doing it sweats out their system a little faster. Show some damn self control.

I would not feel the least bit bad for him if the UFC decides to release him.

What is this guy thinking? Does he want a job? It doesn't seem like it.

Poor Thiago. I hope they stop testing for weed, every fighter should be forced into a hotbox before they fight

he's gonna get himself fired soon. he's too big of a name to be getting into this trouble even if it is for something stupid like weed.

Weed = Anger management.












And a whole host of other things good for the soul.

I know I'm late to the party but this shit is ridiculous. I know it isn't legal but there is no possible way smoking pot will help you perform better in a physical sport such as MMA. I love the stuff but I know when it is a bad idea to smoke it, and there is no way I would do it before a career changing event. That would be like me smoking up and going to talk to the owner of the company about a promotion. Why do they even test for it? Hell maybe test the loser lol

Yes basically.

It's the active compound or derivative of it and its left in places that potentially could be there for years. (hair)

However ones hair would have to be massively long without being cut

Obviously he doesnt have that problem. But depending on the test he took he would have had to smoke <90 days before the fight MORE then once

Don't forget the Devil's lettuce, is also a pain reliever.

I agree they should just stop testing for pot. If the canadian snowboarder can keep his gold medal after testing positive, you would think the commissions would ignore weed. The Olympics let it slide so why not MMA.
