    I think those people have some sympathy due to Silva only popping for roids after his terrible broken leg injury so they assume he used to help the recovery process and maybe wasn't using earlier in his career. This is different to Jon Jones whose whole career is based on ped's and since usada came into the ufc he has looked average and/or popped for ped's in all his fights.

    How many of his opponent were actually clean in that era though?
