Paging Dr. Moreau...

UFC light heavyweight contender Thiago Silva has found himself in hot water with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after a urine sample submitted in conjunction with his participation at UFC 125 back on Jan. 1 was rejected for being "inconsistent with that of a human," according to MMA Weekly.

That means the Brazilian either tampered with his sample or had his pet poodle take one for the team.

Silva's urine sample was initially flagged for "additional processing" following his beatdown of Brandon Vera on the UFC 125: "Resolution" pay-per-view on New Year's Day.

"The Truth" revealed a broken nose and his promotion pink slip after being manhandled en route to a lopsided unanimous decision loss (his third straight) but has since been called back to the UFC after Silva's drug test results were called into question.

Silva, who's maintained his innocence following the incident, was immediately pulled from his UFC 130 fight against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and replaced by Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.

The Brazilian is facing a slew of consequences including the revocation of his fight license, a steep monetary fine and a change in ruling for his Jan. 1 bout with Vera to a "No Contest."

And this isn't the commission's first dance with impostor pee-pee.

Kevin "The Monster" Randleman served a one-year suspension from the NSAC when it was revealed he provided a non-human urine sample following his submission loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at PRIDE 32: "The Real Deal" back on October 21, 2006.

No punishment has been handed down at this time but Silva will have to appear before the NSAC for a hearing on a "potential temporary suspension" on April 7, 2011, at which time he can appeal and request a formal hearing.

Anyone out there willing to give him the benefit of the doubt?
