Anderson Silva breaks silence on testing positive for steroids
“I’ve been competing in this sport for a very long time. This is my nineteenth fight in the UFC. I have been thoroughly tested many times and have never had a positive drug test,” said Silva. “I have not taken any performance enhancing drugs. My stance on drugs is, and will always be, the same. I’m an advocate for a clean sport,” he continued. “I’m consulting with my advisors right now to explore all of my options and intend to fight this allegation and clear my name. I will not make any further comments until my team advises me to do so.” Silva has the option of requesting the B sample from his drug test be processed, which could put the initial A sample result in question or it could verify it. Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett told MMWeekly.com on Wednesday afternoon that Silva’s camp had not yet made such a request.
