Anderson Silva Shocked

If Anderson Silva wants to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games, he will have to be open to random out of competition drug testing in taekwondo tournaments.

Silva first expressed interest in trying out for his National Taekwondo team earlier this month. When an olympic taekwondo practitioner called him out and basically laughed at “Spider”, Silva responded by saying he was willing to get “embarrassed” if it meant trying out.

Brazilian Agency of Doping Control secretary Marco Aurelio Klein recently told Globo Esporte the former UFC champion would not get any special treatment and would be treated like any other fighter. “If he’s competing in official tournaments at the Brazilian Taekwondo Federation (CBTKD), he will be under the ABCD’s jurisdiction, so, like any other athlete, he can be subject to in- and out-of-competition tests by the ABCD.”
