Forrest Griffin failed his post fight drug test against Anderson Silva.

So I don't know how many of you listen to the MMA Hour but Forrest Griffin just revealed he failed his post fight drug test for his fight against Anderson Silva back in 2009, he says he took Xanax before the fight yet the UFC never made it public, what's real crazy is he fought Anderson in August of 2009 and then got back in there against Tito in November of 2009.

He's also talking about speaking to God, and all kinds of stuff.

I would take Xanax too if I knew I was about to step into a locked cage with Anderson Silva...

That's probably one of the reasons why he looked to slow and sluggish. Except for Silva being much faster and technical.

I think Forrest took the red pill before the fight and entered The Matrix.

By the way, if this is true I don't think I can be a fan of the UFC any longer.

How long before the fight? I mean right before his walk out? The night before to help sleep? It'd be hilarious if he tried fighting AS while doped up on xanax. Very hard to believe though. The antithesis of a PED

Xanax is common prescription drug. And, just from seeing how Forrest acts, he legitimately needs them. Granted, Xanax wouldn't really help anybody in a fight. But..., it couldn't hurt to take one when fighting Silva.

He's full of shit.

The UFC doesn't independently test in the PSAC. The PSAC has it's own, competent drug test agency....the same people who busted Nate Marquardt...and by the way, the only commission in the country outside of Nevada and California to EVER suspend a fighter for a failed drug test in MMA.

The UFC wouldn't have had the option to make a failed drug test public. The PSAC would've issued a suspension had they found anything.
