Anderson Silva’s $6 Million Payment Blocked Due to Failed Drug Test


The UFC has blocked a $16 million Brazilian real payment which is $6 million USD from former middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

Silva recently failed a pre fight drug test prior to his bout against Nick Diaz.

Silva was reportedly using two anabolic steroids, drostanolone and androstane.

His win over Diaz will more than likely be ruled a no-contest and he can also expect a nice little fine to go along with that.

Silva will be required to appear before the Nevada State Athletic Commission for a pre-hearing on February 17th along with Diaz who tested positive for illegal levels of marijuana metabolites for the third time in his career.
