Thiago Silva’s UFC 125 drug test sample "Inconsistent with Human Urine" says NSAC

Light Heavyweight competitor Thiago Silva‘s UFC 125 drug test results have concluded that each of the samples submitted by the Brazilian are inconsistent with human urine.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission made the revelation on Tuesday.

According to the report, Silva submitted an altered and/or substituted specimen to the commission prior to his January 1st unanimous decision win over Brandon Vera. A second sample, tested following the match-up, confirmed their original findings.

Silva was set to return in May against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 130, but was pulled from the bout in February when the CSAC stated that his UFC 125 drug test was “still processing.”  

In the meantime, Silva is temporarily suspending pending an April 7th hearing, where he will be given the opportunity to speak on his own behalf before his penalty is decided.  The American Top Team member will likely face a fine and suspension, as well as having the January 1st victory overturned to a no-contest.

    A synthetic blend, no animal needed
    Dog/Cat

    Small farm animal (Sheep, goat)
    Feathered Friend (Osterich, anything with feathers)
    Riding Partners (Donkey, Horse, etc…includes zebras and such)
    Small rodents (racoons, squirrel, mongoose, mouse, rat, ferret, etc…)
    Large feline (tiger, lion, panther, cougar, etc…)

    LMFAO I KNEW IT!

    Doctor: “Mr. Silva could you please come into my office.”

    Thiago Silva: “Is there a problem doctor?”

    Doctor: “Yes Thiago….URINE in big trouble….It appears the urine sample you have given us belongs to a three year old pug.”

    Thiago Silva: “Damnit I knew I should have got it from my nephew.”

    Maybe Thiago ain’t human lol
    jk , if he had the chance to put non-human urine
    why not put another guys urine instead and done.

    anyway hes messing around more doing that kind of stuff
    just put your urine and if you use steroids apologize and keep
    training!

    Lol, its most likely “synthetic urine.” The stuff people purchase online to pass employment tests and such. The problem for Thaigo is that the tests that are used for MMA are much more thorough then a regular dipstick test. I would think he should know that tho.

    Rampage VS Silva would’ve been a monster fight. Too bad. But at least Vera has another crack in the UFC. Instead of dishing out hefty suspensions, they should dish out heftier fines. If you hit the wallet, it’ll make them think twice because you might be taking away their food, their clothes, their kids college funds. Even if you gave them a year’s suspension, they are still training every day. Hit their funds, then they have something to cry about.

    So people want to know how effective steriods are well then just look at Chael and thiago now both came off fights that seemed way to one sided in most peoples opinions than what they expected and then test positive later. Maybe it’s a little more help than many people are willing to admit.

    i’m not familiar with the testing process but.. they asked him to submit a urine sample, and he clearly had time to tamper with it? so it was unsupervised

    many of you are saying ‘why didn’t he just get another human to do it’
    ……
    WHY didn’t he? and how many other fighters ARE doing that?

    I really don’t ascribe so much of an advantage in steroids–lean muscle mass helps, but it is what you do and how skillfully you use those muscles that matters most in MMA.

    Many of those who take steroids do so to heal faster from injuries sustained in training. After sustained use, some fighters shut down their own unaided production of testosterone–and require injections of testosterone just to–er–keep up with the Jones’s.

    I think they have to have a human supervised piss. (what a job) Otherwise they would use a friend or family member’s urine.

    Silva probably drank a substance to mask his steroid use before taking the test.

    I don’t know about the UFC urine tests, but I have read about the Olympic and cycling tests, and in those, someone watches you piss into a bottle. And they are on the lookout for rubber penises too.
