Here's the video of Anderson Silva finding out he failed his UFC 183 drug test

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva was tapped to coach this season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil," and actually had a few episodes under his belt prior to getting yanked in favor of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

That was a result of his UFC 183 drug test, which returned positive for a bouillabaisse of banned substances, leaving "Minotauro" to coach opposite Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (more on that here).

And much like it did with the (cough) "fight" between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva (relive that silliness here), the promotion has released a clip showing what happened when Silva received the news that he spiked his Brazilian lemonade.

Silva has been sidelined ever since, and won't be able to meet these lofty expectations until he finishes his business with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), who is expected to discipline "The Spider" for his transgressions.

For how long, remains to be seen.
