Despite gaining approval for the use of testosterone replacement therapy, Antonio Silva still failed his post-fight drug test following a “Fight of the Year” candidate against Mark Hunt in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 33.

MMAjunkie learned of the failure through multiple sources close to the event, which took place Dec. 7 at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia, and was regulated by the promotion. UFC officials have since confirmed the failed screen, which indicated an elevated testosterone level.

“Silva is on a medically approved regimen of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), and had been in compliance with therapeutic guidelines on all pre-fight tests performed prior to the event,” a statement issued by a UFC rep read. “The results of his test on the day of the event indicated a level of testosterone outside of allowable limit. Silva has been informed that the elevated testosterone level is a violation of the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and his Promotional Agreement with Zuffa.”

Damn! No wonder Hunt smashed his hands to pieces trying to knock the dude out! But I'm waiting to see if he was well over the limit or if his medication was to blame before I throw his giant ass under the flame bus.

Mark Hunt has elevated levels of ass-kicking, and that's worth far more then testosterone.

I think that was more due to the fact that Bigfoot has a medium sized Winnebago for a head.

why are they changing it from a draw to a NC on Silva's record but not Hunts? It makes no sense to change it on one and not the other

since everyone knows the rules including the gentleman in my av I'll be throwing bigfoot under the bus regardless. Overeem claimed medicine was the cause for his failed test as well.
