PostSubject: Wanderlei Silva refused random drug test   Thu May 29, 2014 11:52 am

Earlier today news broke that Wanderlei Silva was out of his UFC 175 with Chael Sonnen and Vitor Belfort will replace him. Now more details have surfaced for the reason for changing the bout and things don't look good for Wanderlei Silva.


Wannderlei Silva was pulled from his scheduled UFC 175 grudge match against Chael Sonnen due to a failure to submit an application to fight in the state of Nevada, as well as his refusal to undergo a random drug test, sources told MMAFighting.com.

Silva had "ample time" to submit his application to compete at UFC 175 and elected not to do so, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Executive Director Robert Bennett.

In addition, according to sources, both Silva and Sonnen were asked to undergo random drug tests while in Nevada last week for UFC 173. Sonnen complied with the request, however when asked to do the same, Silva refused.

NSAC officials declined to comment on matters regarding the random tests.



Although not commenting on the refusal to submit to a drug test, the UFC did release the following statement on the situation:

Due to issues related to Wanderlei Silva’s licensing in the state of Nevada, the UFC was forced to seek a replacement opponent to face Chael Sonnen at UFC 175 on Saturday, July 5 in Las Vegas. Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort has accepted the fight with Sonnen, subject to Belfort receiving a license to compete from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

How do officials giving no comment regarding any drug testing = refused to take a drug test? Sounds like some fox news bullshit.
