While NSAC executive director Keith Kizer wasn’t prepared to share who the mystery man was, Thiago Silva admitted to a popular Brazilian website one of his two urine samples registered a positive result. However, the light heavyweight claims he’s done nothing wrong.

“My blood is clean,” Silva told TATAME (Translated by USAToday). “I haven’t used anything.”

I'm a little confused, but I guess I will wait till the result of the second sample.

I don't know if it was steroids or not but Thiago definitely seemed stronger with a lot more aggression in the Vera fight. I wonder if the UFC will give Vera another chance if his lost is overturned.

What's so difficult to understand? Do you even know what a wookiee is?

Yea, he is saying the test came back as being dirty but that he didn't take anything. I think he is trying to claim the test is bogus.

They do a test A and a test B at the same time. one came back dirty, so it could be a couple things. I say contamination, at fault of the lab....

How can you say this without knowing whether or not the B sample is positive?

I apologize for slandering my fellow forum member. What I should have said is that, in my humble opinion, steroids and performance enhancing drugs are ruining the integrity of all sports.

And the 1 out of 10 times where talent does not beat strength is when someone is juiced out of their mind and breaks someones leg while prying a triangle choke off of their neck.

If Royce Gracie were as big as everyone he fought in the beginning days of the UFC, what would the appeal be? Would MMA and BJJ turned in to what it has today? Doubtful. You wouldn't see that skinny 170lb guy who could be you subbing a bunch of big burly dudes. You wouldn't see the every day guy overcoming the odds and using pure skill to win his fights.

That's what we lose with PED's
