NSAC: Thiago Silva's UFC 125 drug-test sample "inconsistent with human urine"

Quote:
UFC 125 fighter Thiago Silva's drug-testing sample was "inconsistent with human urine," Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Silva's initial "A" test was flagged, and further testing on the "B" sample confirmed the original conclusion.

Kizer said Silva now essentially is temporarily suspended until an April 7 hearing.

Silva will be asked to address the situation at the Las Vegas meeting, where he could face a suspension, fine and the overturning of his win to a no-contest.

Silva fought fellow light heavyweight Brandon Vera and earned a unanimous-decision win at UFC 125 in January. However, the 28-year-old subsequently was scratched from a planned UFC 130 bout with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson when UFC 125 drug-testing results were released.

At the time, Kizer told MMAjunkie.com that the commission was still investigating one sample from the event. While he could not confirm whether or not one of the sample belonged to Silva, the NSAC executive did confirm that Silva was among the UFC 125 fighters who submitted a pre-fight screen. Additionally, Silva was the only fighter tested who was not confirmed as passing.

Urinalysis of Silva's sample produced an "invalid result" that was "inconsistent with human urine," according an NSAC complaint. The sample then was tested by the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory, which is accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency, and determined the same thing.

The report concludes that Silva "submitted an adulterated and/or substituted specimen for testing for the urinalysis."

UFC officials have not commented on the matter and will await the outcome of the April 7 hearing.

Uh oh....... Didn't Randleman do this before? This is really, really bad for Thiago.

Wait, so he gave them fake piss? Couldn't he at least try and get urine from one of his teammates or family members or something?

As far as I can tell, Thiago Silva gave the NSAC fake urine to pass the drug test. Maybe I read it wrong though, that sounds way too funny.

His urine sample from the fight with Brandon Vera was tested and flagged for having something wrong with it. When they tested his second sample, it concluded that (in basic terms)

He either

A) Made a synthetic, chemical urine substitute, and tried to pass it in as his urine. (Which means he did not really try to mask his chemical levels at all, but completlely, 100% premeditatively cheated.

B) Collected animal urine, and passed it in as his own.

C) Passed in apple juice as urine.

Most likely A, which makes me wonder, does this ever work??

Why would Thiago's urine resemble that of a human???

Anyone who's seen him fight, knows that he's a manimal.


(Ok, in all seriousness, this is really disappointing news)

I can't believe they'd let fighters just bring in their urine sample. Surely they watch them piss or I would think so

If they do indeed just bring them in, I've had tougher screenings to work at a grocery store

There are plenty of ways to get around a watched piss test now a days.

I have to be more careful with what i read. I read almost half of the story until i realized it wasn't about Alves. Thank god.

Can't wait til' the hearing and hear what he has to say about the matter.
