Wanderlei Silva Angry With The UFC
Wanderlei Silva is a former Pride middleweight champion and UFC veteran. Silva is loved across the world by millions of MMA fans, and he is one of the most popular fighters in the sport. However, Wanderlei Silva is no longer able to compete in the sport that made him famous.
In 2014, Wanderlei Silva was accused of avoiding a steroid test, and he has since been banned from ever competing in the UFC again. That ruling sounds a bit extreme to me, and it was carried out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. However, Wanderlei has since sued the Commission, and the case has yet to be settled.
UFC fans love Wanderlei, and they were extremely disappointed to hear that their favorite fighter has been banned for life. I personally cannot believe that Wanderlei was banned forever. The man is one of the greatest fighters of all time, and he has never failed a steroid test in his life. Fans like Mark Ahn (prnewswire.com) know that the Nevada State Athletic Commission should have just suspended Wanderlei Silva for nine months. UFC commentator Joe Rogan said that Wanderlei Silva is not being treated fairly, and many people agree with Rogan.
The UFC has begun to crack down on fighters that use performance enhancing drugs. However, Wanderlei Silva believes that a fighter shouldn’t be tested out of competition, but the UFC believes differently. Recently, Wander Silva has since gone on a tirade, and he has lashed out against the UFC in a recent interview. More information on this story can be found here.
