Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Thiago Silva Suspended Six Months for Positive Marijuana Test Following ‘UFC Macao’; Win Overturned to No-Contest

(Huh. I always figured Thiago was more of a PCP guy. / Photo via Sherdog)

For a brief moment, Thiago Silva‘s submission of Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on FUEL: Franklin vs. Le looked like a redemptive moment. The Brazilian light-heavyweight had his back against the wall thanks to a one-year suspension for trying to cheat a drug test, followed by a unanimous deicison loss to Alexander Gustafsson. Beating the undefeated Nedkov meant that Silva was finally heading in the right direction.

Well screw all that, because the dude just threw his own career under the bus again. The UFC released the following statement this evening:

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.”

So, Silva will miss another six months of his prime competitive years (and the paychecks that go along with it), and will be forced to hang out with Dave Herman at weed rehab. Even worse, his win over Nedkov will be overturned to a no-contest, which means that Thiago Silva hasn’t officially won a fight in 39 months.

This is usually the part where you guys moan in the comments section about how marijuana isn’t a performance enhancer, and that the metabolites stay in your body for a long time after you’ve stopped smoking, and it just isn’t fair, and blah blah blah you liberal pansies. But unfortunately, these are the rules, every fighter is informed of them, and if Thiago Silva can’t abide by those rules, maybe he can find different job that never tests for steroids and lets him smoke as much herb as he wants.

The next time I see the guy who delivers my Thai food on his bicycle, I’ll ask him if he needs an intern.

Dipset your a moron dude. Just a moron. Keep posting your unreadable jibble jabble and continue giving hope to all the mongoloids of the world that someday they too can be as fucking stupid as you. You were concieved with weak sperm and should of been a Jew living in germany in the 1940's. At least there would have been one justifiable death in that entire godamned world. As for my login name, its a joke man, like your punctuation usage. I hope the internet connection in your trailer ends up getting chewed through by all the rodents that laugh at your ugly fucking face. I will rape your dickhole with my Dick. (no fag of course) I hope you get choked by your mother's menstrual pulp because that my friend, will be the only period youll ever be smart enough to use properly. I love you dipset. I wanna hold you so hard.

Dipset your comments are brain sharts. Everytime I read one of your ridiculous 3rd grade level opinions I want to cut myself. Please go become a fan of the WWE and give us the best Christmas present we could imagine. Will anyone second this?

@algiersheadkick if you want to use a drug for medical purposes in the UFC you have to get it cleared by the Nevada State athletic commission Thiago knew that it's not his first time
dipsetkilla316- November 22, 2012 at 8:59 am
If jones pops up for Heroin forget his cereer his life would be over listen i smoke weed all the time and its not the worst thing ever but in ufc its illegal so it is wat it is u could go out there and smoke or u could go out there and take ur cereer seriously this is the secound NC for silva he hasn't won a fight officially since kieth jardine and he has to sit out for six months hes done
Madson- November 22, 2012 at 8:12 am
Firing Thiago is the thing to do. He is disrecpectful against himself, his adversaries, the fan and his boss. Let the place to others who want to take the game seriously. It's harsh to ban weed but this is the rules of the game he chooses to play.
skeletor- November 22, 2012 at 6:30 am
@bookoo - weed is not a masking agent, its an illegal substance. My question is would any other illegal drugs carry the same suspension of 6 months? What if Jones popped for heroin or meth?
BooKoo- November 22, 2012 at 6:02 am
Weed is a masking agent, you dummies.
hitekredneck- November 22, 2012 at 5:48 am
A quick question. Weed is legal in Washington and Colorado, so will they stop testing for it there?
