UFC Fighters Silva & Diaz Both Tested for Drugs, Both Fail…

And only one of them I’m actually surprised about.

According to Bloody Elbow, “Anderson Silva has failed a pre-fight drug screening for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone” and later it was also revealed that he may have tested positive for another PED, Androsterone. Nick Diaz also tested positive for drugs as well post fight- marijuana.

A pot user tests positive for pot? Whaaaaaaaat.

Seriously though, I really am surprised about Silva and his pre-fight drug test- and to be honest, disappointed. I imagine the pressure to perform has to be tremendous, so I get that, but just how far can the benefits of using a banned substance outweigh the risk of getting caught?

Let me know what you think- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
