Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva fails post-fight drug test, stripped of $50,000 bonus
(mmajunkie.com)
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.”

UFC on Fox 9 Medical Suspensions: Urijah Faber Heads Trio of Possible Six-Month Suspensions
(mmaweekly.com)
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson retained his title on Saturday night at UFC on Fox 9: Johnson vs. Benavidez II, wielding the power that many thought a 125-pound man didn’t have in his hands. Johnson knocked out Joseph Benavidez little more than two minutes into the opening round of their fight, putting Benavidez on the UFC on Fox 9 medically suspended list. Urijah Faber – although he won his fight by submitting Michael McDonald – landed what could be six-month suspension after he injured both hands in the fight. Mac Danzig and Court McGee also face potential six-month suspensions for various concerns, while every fighter on the card received at least a mandatory seven-day rest period.

Signal to Noise: UFC on FOX 9's best and worst
(mmafighting.com)
Saturday's UFC on Fox 9 offered fight fans much to love. There were excellent fights, superb finishes by respected veterans, the showing of a dominant champion and much more. Yet, there was also a lot to dislike. Judges refused to score a beating 10-8, many fights went to a decision and the main event was rather brief. It's time to separate the good from the bad, the winners from the losers and the signal from the noise from UFC on Fox 9...
