UFC: Report of pay withheld from Anderson Silva after drug test failure 'not true'
A report Sunday evening by Brazilian media outlet Veja.com stated the UFC had withheld a payment of nearly $6 million to Anderson Silva after his failed pre-UFC 183 drug test. The report claimed the withheld money was Silva’s (34-6 MMA, 17-2 UFC) $600,000 fight purse, $200,000 win bonus and the money he made off of his pay-per-view “points,” or percentage of PPV revenue, for the Jan. 31 pay-per-view fight, where the former longtime middleweight champion returned from a 13-month layoff to earn a decision win over former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz (26-10 MMA, 7-7 UFC). It's so unlike Brazilian websites to post lies Edit: For some reason when I post from my iPad the links never work. Sorry about that it's the first story on junkie.
