Update On Anderson Silva’s UFC Suspension

This morning news broke that the UFC has decided to end Anderson Silva’s suspension this October. The former UFC Champion was suspended due to a USDA drug test failure from 2017. Here is the report from Ariel Helwani:

Helwani stated:

Anderson Silva is going to receive a one-year suspension from USADA dating back to Oct. 2017 after it was deemed his positive drug test was due to contaminated substances, sources confirm. He will be eligible to return in Oct. 2018 and wants to resume his career.

Silva, through his PR team, had this to say regarding the one-year suspension:

I am vindicated. The past nine months have been extremely difficult. I felt like my career and everything I had worked so hard for was dying and my future was hanging in the balance. I knew in my heart that I had done nothing wrong and fully cooperated with USADA during their inquiry to prove it. Today I have a renewed energy. My legacy is restored. I can focus on getting back into the ring and the next chapter of my life after fighting.
