“The whole fight [against Thiago Silva] I just kept asking myself, what the hell is going on? Why is this? I train with Phil Davis, Travis Browne, the Noguiera brothers, Junior Dos Santos…I train with some big dudes man and nobody has ever just been able to hold me down you know?… but now that I know that he was a juice monkey, for sure I think he is a piece of shit. He is for sure just a piece of shit.”
Reflecting back on his last UFC outing, Brandon Vera tells the good guys over at mmafighting.com exactly what he thinks of his previous foe Thiago Silva.
Silva is currently serving a one-year suspension due to a failed urine screening. He did not necessarily get busted for using steroids or banned substances of any kind; he got busted for using synthetic urine in replace of his own in an effort the cheat the system. However, when the commission tested the sample for testosterone levels, they discovered no testosterone, which is impossible from a human sample.
Regardless of the circumstances, Vera isn’t buying the fact that Silva isn’t on the “juice” and is convinced his face got rearranged in his last fight due to a cheating opponent.
