Anderson Silva waarschijnlijk weer positief getest door USADA

Nov 10, 2017 Voormalig Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middengewicht kampioen Anderson Silva is door het United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) via een zogenoemde “out-of-competition” test mogelijk positief getest op het gebruik van verboden middelen.

Als gevolg hiervan is "The Spider" van het middengewicht gevecht tegen  Kelvin Gastelum gehaald wat op zaterdag 25 november tijdens UFC Fight Night 122 in de Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China plaats zou vinden.

Dit is de reactie van de UFC:

"The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Anderson Silva of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on October 26, 2017. As a result, Silva has been provisionally suspended by USADA. Due to the proximity of Silva’s upcoming scheduled bout at UFC Fight Night, Shanghai, China on November 25, 2017 against Kelvin Gastelum, Silva has been removed from the card and UFC is currently seeking a replacement.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Silva. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward."

Dit is niet de eerste positieve test van de Braziliaan, Silva werd in 2015 ook al voor een jaar geschorst nadat hij positief getest was op het gebruik van verboden middelen.
