Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva wants it to be known that he has never been a cheater and never had a juiced body. “The Spider” failed a pre-fight drug test leading into his UFC 183 bout with Nick Diaz and has since been suspended.
Silva took to Instagram and lashed out at the experts who are saying he is a juicer:
“I’m not a cheater and I never had a juiced body. Just watch my fights in Japan, when I fought in PRIDE at 80 KG pounds because there was no 84 KG division, and the guys I fought cut from 100 KG to 94 KG. So for those ‘experts’, get the real facts. I apologize to my followers and fans that give me strength and criticize me with the intention to help me instead of bringing me down, because I don’t want you to think that I’m being rude with you. I’m just tired of listening to lies and false accusations. I don’t live in a glass case, I’m not a saint and I never said I was the best. I always did what I love with truth, without overshadowing and lying to anyone. Unfortunately, I can’t please everybody because I’m not and I don’t wanna be unanimous.”
Anderson Silva’s hearing has been postponed multiple times and he will be meeting with the Nevada State Athletic Commission to learn his fate. Do you think we will see him back in the octagon within a few months, or will he be made an example of with a severe suspension?
