Hypothetical...Weidman test positive for PED

As a Silva fan, I don't want this to come off as sour grapes or like I expect this to happen; I'm just curious how the UFC would handle it.

So hypothetically, Weidman's test comes back positive and the fight is declared a no contest. Does the belt revert to Silva? And if it does revert to him, does he just wait around for a year while Chris serves his suspension and then they do a rematch, or does the UFC book Silva against someone else?

ETA oops typo in the thread title should be tests.

I doubt he comes back positive for PEDs so no need to worry until they do

If he does come back positive my opinion of him changes, my opinion of the fight does not.

I think the title becomes vacant but it is up to the UFC. That is what happened with Barnett as I recall.

I was just curious and asking, hypothetically, what people thought might happen. Last time I checked this is a discussion forum and I was just trying to generate a little discussion.

Bolded an important part some people clearly skipped. Lazy ne'er do wells!

He'd be stripped of the title and Silva reinstated, and a rematch would probably be offered but declined by Silva, who would give up the belt. Then Chael will fight Vitor, with the winner of that facing Weidman when he comes back after suspension to see who is king roider.

If the fight is ruled a no contest Silva gets belt back. The result of Couture/Barnett was never overturned so josh was merely stripped.
