MMA Crossfire – Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz test positive for steroids, marijuana

It appears the return of Anderson Silva at UFC 183 was too good to be true.

According to news reports, Silva tested positive in an Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) out-of-competition test for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone metabolites, and Androsterone, a type of endogenous testosterone.

Diaz tested positive in an out-of-competition test for marijuana. It is his third violation.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.

Silva defeated Diaz by unanimous decision January 31st in Las Vegas.

The UFC said in a statement on Silva,  it was “disappointed to learn of these initial results.”

No comment on Diaz has been released.

Silva has been on record as advocating that fighters caught using steroids should be issued lifetime bans from the sport.

One of the interesting points is while Silva’s test was taken January 9th, it took until today before the results were released.

ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto is covering the story.
