Anderson Silva Next Fight: Silva Eligible To Return In October 2018

USADA announced on Wednesday (July 18) that the former UFC middleweight champion has accepted a one-year suspension, which is back-dated to November 10, 2017. The other negative for Silva was that the test failure cost him a main event slot against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night Shanghai past year. The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) rejected the defense and handed down a retroactive one-year suspension. My legacy is restored.

"I knew in my heart that I had done nothing wrong and fully cooperated with USADA during their inquiry to prove it", added Silva. This, in turn, means that he will be eligible to return after November 10, 2018.

Anderson Silva won't rule out a super fight with Georges St-Pierre. Those fighters accepted six-month suspensions, but because the October 26 failure represented Silva's second anti-doping violation, he was given a one-year term.

Silva faced a four-year suspension with his second anti-doping violation, but avoided a career-ending punishment with just a year of suspension as he was cleared of intentionally taking the banned steroid discovered in his system last year. The contaminated supplement affair is over, and he will be able to return to the Octagon in November.

The metabolites for which Silva tested positive - 17α-methyl-5β-androstan-3α, 17β-diol and 17α-methyl-5α-androstan-3α, 17β-diol - are a non-specified substance in the class of anabolic agents. On October 26, Silva submitted a urine test that would inevitably keep him out of the cage for an indeterminate amount of time.

Norway is also reported to have sent 10 helicopters, even though there is a risk of similar fires starting in Norway. The town of Jokkmokk, a popular winter tourist destination, was threatened by fires in the vicinity.

Silva's name was recently mentioned by Daniel Cormier, the reigning UFC king of both the light heavyweight and heavyweight division.

Silva, 43, is the fourth athlete to accept a sanction under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy as a result of a positive test caused by the use of contaminated supplements purchased from a Brazilian compounding pharmacy https://ufc.usada.org/compounding-pharmacies-supply-tainted-supplements-behind-three-positive-tests/ . "I can focus on getting back into the ring and the next chapter of my life after fighting".

Anderson "The Spider" Silva has been "vindicated" as his situation with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has come to a close.

As with all fighters who've accepted sanctions for anti-doping violations, Silva is required to make himself available to random drug testing during his suspension. I want to thank my family and fans for all of their love and unwavering support.
