Anderson Silva's career hanging in the balance after second failed drug test

Anderson Silva's career hanging in the balance after second failed drug test

The UFC is expected to officially announce Bisping vs. Gastelum shortly, perhaps on tonight's UFC Fight Night 120 broadcast.

The UFC states it is now looking for a replacement opponent for Gastelum, who is set to headline UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai.

There is no word yet on what substance caused the potential test violation, but it was from an out of competition sample collected on October 18.

Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has agreed to step in for fellow former titleholder Anderson Silva at UFC Fight Night 122.

Silva was first flagged in relation to his UFC 183 headlining bout with Nick Diaz in January of 2015. The promotion had been looking for a replacement for Anderson Silva in the fight after Silva was pulled following a failed drug test.

Silva claimed the failed test was due to sexual enhancement pills, but the disciplinary panel did not agree.

That earned him a one-year suspension and $380,000 fine from the Nevada Athletic Commission despite his insistence that he'd never knowingly taken performance-enhancing drugs, instead blaming the positive test on a tainted male-enhancement product from Thailand.

Silva has since returned and fought three times without issue.

Silva was removed from the November 25th main event after he was flagged for a potential doping offence and provisionally suspended by the United States Anti-Doping Agency on Friday.

Silva has been tested a total of 12 times this year alone according to the USADA athlete testing base which was updated on November 8. Worse still, the forty-two year old Silva could now see his career come to an end with a lengthy suspension.
