Wanderlei Silva files motion to dismiss lawsuit, says Belfort test evidence of UFC cheating
(bloodyelbow.com)
Attorneys for Wanderlei Silva have filed a motion to dismiss the UFC's lawsuit against the renowned MMA fighter with the Clark County, Nevada District Court on Friday, October 3, 2015. The motion claims that the UFC's suit is an attempt "to chill Silva's free speech" and "public participation" as well as send a message to other fighters, and that Silva comments about "cheating" and "fight-fixing" received additional credibility with Vitor Belfort's recently revealed lab results. The UFC filed a complaint of "Intentional Misconduct" against Silva on July 29th for comments he had published on Facebook referring to "fight fixing" in the UFC and comparing the promotion to professional wrestling. Silva's counsel, Terry A. Coffing of the firm Marquis Aurbach Coffing, argues that the complaint should be dismissed because it fails to show damages from his comments or prove his comments were false, and that the UFC's true motivation behind filing the suit is to silence his client.

Homecomings can be a little bittersweet, especially in the twisted, merciless game of MMA, where every fight is an intersection of loosely controlled fate. It was nearly seven years ago to the day that Gegard Mousasi, in the midst of a 15-fight winning streak, stunned Ronaldo Souza with an upkick knockout at Dream 6.
