In a bizarre story a few weeks ago, UFC fighter Wanderlei Silva comically avoided taking a drug test by simply leaving the gym he was working out at and running away from the test collector. Well, on Tuesday he admitted to avoiding that May 24 drug test because he was taking banned substances at the time.
The 37-year-old Silva went before the Nevada State Athletic Commission at an “information gathering” hearing on Tuesday and admitted wrongdoing. He was immediately suspended by the organization. Silva’s lawyer claims the fighter was taking diuretics at the time of the test.
