Default Thiago Silva fails drug test...

...for marijuana this time.

Quote:
Zuffa, LLC, owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, released a statement today regarding UFC® light heavyweight Thiago Silva:

“Thiago Silva tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout at UFC on FUEL TV in Macau. The UFC organization has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents. Silva has admitted to taking the banned substance and has agreed to participate in an approved drug-rehabilitation program and serve a six-month suspension retroactive to the November 10 event. He must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to fight again.”

This is already a conduct unbecoming a fighter.

Can the UFC just have Brandon Vera just plant a knee in this guy's nose?

This shows he just doesn't care. If he doesn't care, then why should we.

i know its only weed, but he is a professional athlete. he knows they test for it and if caught, get suspended. regardless weather you believe they should test for it or not, they do. so why the **** would he risk it. what a tool.

Baseball players were getting suspended for using androstenedione in the 90's when it was legal but still a banned substance.

Weed obviously shouldn't be deserving of a suspension, but it is a PED. Anything that can make you a healthier athlete, more relaxed, and more focused, is a PED imo. But if the UFC imposes a rule saying white shoes are banned, it's thier rules.

I wonder what Rogan is going to say about the forced rehab. He knows it's not addictive and doesnt deserve to be lumped into the same group as dangerous drugs. That is what I'd be more interested in seeing. If Joe butts heads with Dana over this. Trust me, us cannabis advocates are pretty stubborn about subjects like this.

The athletic commission's testing guidelines need to be changed.
