(mmafighting.com)
Speaking through his lawyer, Wanderlei Silva stated at Tuesday's Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) meeting that the reason he refused to undergo a random NAC sanctioned drug test on May 24 is because he was concerned that the test would show the presence of diuretics in his system, which he claims to have begun taking along with anti-inflammatories prescribed by a UFC doctor in order to help him recover from a fractured right wrist he suffered in February while coaching The Ultimate Fighter Brazil.

MMA Fighter Taps Out In Order To Save His Opponent
(blogs.canoe.ca)
When presented the chance to dummy his opponent, an amateur MMA fighter tapped out. While most fighters would have seized the opportunity to put an opponent to sleep, Mike Pantangco (white shorts) backed away, bent down and tapped the Prison City octagon. He’d done enough damage. At a certain point, forfeiting becomes the better option. After all, he wasn’t getting paid. He had nothing to gain from hurting his opponent, he told Inside MMA in his own words after the bout. “I just feel that there’s no point fighting him because he didn’t train against me and I didn’t train for him and I just feel like we’re amateur fighters. We don’t get money we don’t get paid,” Pantangco said. He added: “I know that the only thing I’m going to finish the fight is him to go in the hospital or get hurt. I just feel terrible so I’m just going to give him the win.” This was 4 weeks ago but I don't think it was posted here.
