Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Thiago Silva’s UFC 125 Pre-Fight Drug Test ‘Inconsistent With Human Urine’

(Not so fast, buddy: Silva’s big win could cost him dearly. Photoprops: MMAGospel)

Reports about Thiago Silva‘s sketchy UFC 125 drug test results have been swirling since last month, and were allegedly the cause for Silva’s removal from a slated bout with Quinton Jackson at UFC 130, as well as Brandon Vera‘s sudden un-firing. And even though Silva’s camp promised us that the light-heavyweight’s drug test would come back normal, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is telling a different story today. As the NSAC confirmed with FightersOnly and MMAJunkie, Silva is being accused of supplying a urine sample that was not from a human source.

Prior to his unanimous decision victory over Brandon Vera at UFC 125, Silva was required to submit a urine sample for drug testing. His specimen was analyzed in two different labs, both of which found that his urine “reflect[ed] a Complete-Invalid Result indicating that the specimen submitted by Silva is inconsistent with human urine,” and suggests that the fighter “submitted an adulterated and/or substituted specimen for testing for the urinalysis.”

Silva is suspended until an April 7th hearing in Las Vegas, and will be asked to address the situation then.

If this situation sounds familiar, it’s probably because Kevin Randleman tried to pull the same trick in 2006. Following his submission loss to Mauricio Rua at PRIDE 32, Randleman submitted a urine sample that lacked human hormones. (“It was either allegedly non-human urine or urine from a dead human being,” said NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer.) Randleman admitted that he submitted a fake sample because of the large amounts of painkillers and antibiotics he was taking at the time due to a lung infection, and was suspended from competition for one year.

We all know Overreem pees horse, and BJ Penn pees orangutan, and GSP pees WD40, and PaulHarris pees wolverine, and Phil Davis pees batman, but Thiago Silva never occurred to me - could we get the species at least? March 30, 2011 at 5:53 am
yes, it's consistent with the creature universally known as "The Douchebag"...

Hey guy is it too late for more piss jokes?

Arlovski would likes to asks to the NSAC; "is hows tests my pee pee pee...OK?"

On a recent Joe Rogan podcast he talked about being told by trainers how a certain active fighter pisses a clean sample then later when a test is required he injects the sample into his bladder. No names mentioned ofcourse.

I'm pretty sure I saw Scooby Doo dressed as an old woman hanging out with the Silva camp before the fight, thought it was a bit suspicious at the time cause i hadn't heard of any mysteries that needed solving

lady (sp.)Oh crap, please give us an edit button and give me the power to kill some of these spammers.

At least his sample didnt show that he was pregnant. Never use the old ladie to get a clean urinalysis,.....just sayin.

Id maybe give 10 percent of his performance to peds. So that leaves us with 3 low kicks, 5 jabs and a little more squirming from vera that never came to fruition.. eikarumba!!

slap on the wrist time. steroids are bad for the sport, but so is watching brandon vera.

A couple quick swigs and Lyoto Machida could have told ya that"

hahahaha :)

Now all that's left to find out is if Thiago has the hypogonads to make up some bullshit sob story for the commission about his shy bladder and how he had a prescription for that animal piss.
Vera- March 29, 2011 at 6:46 pm
Thats the last time Silva will be allowed to bring his Buffy-headed Marmoset into the piss tent, thats for sure!

"...How the fuck would someone get urine from a dead human...???

It's obvious...

He pees dead people.

It's obvious that they mixed up his sample with Palhares' sample. The lab techs probably looked at each other bewildered as to how there were traces in equal parts of human, bear, and wolverine urine in one sample.

Maybe the other Brazillians in big mma didn't grow up in the favella's but I can't think of a single other fighter from that country that acts like he does. The opposite mostly.

brazilian favelas tend to produce mean mugging animals
Waxedpants- March 29, 2011 at 5:21 pm
Oh I hope they cut his ass .. I know they won't but I can't stand this guy. Wasn't he the biggest or close to the biggest earner for that fight card? Mean mugging punk ass douchebag.

Bravo, jimbonics, bravo!
Uppercut Magnet- March 29, 2011 at 5:13 pm
Maybe his poor brazilian upbringing has made his urine lack the necessary hormones to be considered human.

Just like how Chael Sonnen's wrestling background has made his testicles lack the necessary hormones to have him be considered a man.
Me likey- March 29, 2011 at 4:59 pm
remember that football movie the program? a guy had piss put into his bladder so he could piss clean in front of the ncaa. kind of a revers cathater thing.

Given that people have been caught before submitting non-human piss, you'd think no one would try it again. I can understand if you've tried to take steroids and you thought you'd been clean long enough to pass the test, but this is something where you should know that you were going to get caught. It's like speeding past a speed camera and being surprised that you got caught.

Well anyway, Brandon vera will be re-fired soon enough.
