As you all already know, Anderson Silva was flagged by USADA before his fight with Kelvin Gastelum. Well the results are in. We now know what he tested positive for. Methyltestosterone and an unnamed diuretic.
He faces a potential four year ban, maybe more because of testing for multiple supplements. His reps have said that the 42 year old will retire if he is suspended for 2 or more years. This is his second failed test, the first time around he claimed a tainted supplement led to his positive test. Anderson Silva denies ever taking any PED’s.
If this is the end of his career he will finish (34-8 MMA, 17-4 UFC). This is a sad way to see Silva go out. Once considered the GOAT, his reputation is tarnished. He’s the Barry Bonds of the UFC. While Jon Jones is having his trouble, he’s still a young guy, there is still time for Jon to maybe get back on track. With this more than likely being the end of Anderson’s career, just a sad way to see him go out.
