Wanderlei Silva released a video on Wednesday to discuss his appearance before the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday afternoon. He thinks that he “solved” his problem as it pertains to his evasion of a random drug test back in late May just by explaining that he used diuretics and not steroids.
“I am relieved to have solved this problem,” Silva said in the video. “We explained to them the circumstances and that I was not using any PEDs.”
UFC President Dana White thinks the former PRIDE middleweight champion is very wrong.
“I’m not the athletic commission, but I think he’s very wrong,” White said Thursday afternoon in an exclusive interview with UFC.com. “I think he’s in big trouble. You can not run away from a test. You can’t do it, and it sets a very bad precedent. He would have been better off taking the test and testing positive than running from the test. But I’m not a commission member. Maybe I’m wrong and he’s right. We’ll see what happens.”
