Anderson Silva Tests Clean For PEDs in Second UFC 183 Test

Anderson Silva

The MMA world is still reeling from the news that Anderson Silva allegedly tested positive for steroids in a pre-UFC 183 drug test, but according to multiple reports, that was not the case for his second round of exams.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has informed several outlets that Silva’s second, out-of-competition drug test was negative for human-growth-hormone and other types of performance enhancing drugs. According to a report from MMA the second test was conducted on January 19th.

Silva’s first test, which was taken on January 9th,  was allegedly positive for drostanolone and androstane. The former middleweight champ has denied taking any type of PED.

The 39 year-old Silva ended up scoring a unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz on January 31st. The Brazilian star is scheduled to appear in front of the NSAC on February 17th.

On Monday, the UFC also announced that Silva will no longer coach the latest season of TUF Brazil as scheduled.

    Which could mean one of two things, the first test was a false positive, which won’t know until B sample is tested. Or the first testing caught Silva by surprise at the end of his cycle

  • hindsightufuk says:

    So what is going on with the b sample? Is it being tested? Does seem like that surprise test caught him by surprise!

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I think most likely he was caught off gaurd for the first test but had 10 days to clean up before the second test.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    Supposedly they put a rush on the B Sample, but I’d think it would of been tested and they gotten the results by now

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Yeah the B sample will be important, if it comes back clean then great day for Anderson, if it also is dirty then he should just come out and admit what it proves.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    If it comes back clean, great day for Silva and UFC, horrible day for NSAC and the lab they sent the tests off to because that means someone somewhere fucked up
