UFC President Dana White has responded to the recent fallout with MMA Legend Wanderlei Silva, following his lifetime ban from the sport.
“I didn’t see a lifetime ban coming, but probably the worst thing you can do is run from a drug test. You can’t run from a drug test. I think he was trying to put up a smoke screen. Look over here because he does it a few days before he’s about to go in front of the Nevada State [sic] Athletic Commission. The guy ran from a drug test. … I’ve been saying it for a long time that he was going to get something serious. I’ve never said a bad thing about Wanderlei Silva in my life. I’ve always respected the guy and there is no way that guy can ever say that myself or Lorenzo Fertitta ever disrespected him. There’s nothing more that needs to be said.”
