Crazy! UFC releases more video of emotional Anderson Silva finding out about UFC 183 drug test fail

New, 40 comments

It has been a tough fall from grace for former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva, and now "The Spider" is being forced to relive his nightmare as UFC brass continue to release more footage of Silva finding out his UFC 183 drug test results.

Silva has the news broken to him on the set of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil." See, Silva was actually one of the coaches on the show opposite Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, but after the test results were made public, UFC brass pulled the former champ in favor of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

With UFC releasing sneak-peek footage alluding to Silva finding out about his positive test result on set earlier this week, it was only a matter of time before they delivered the goods, which you can catch in the video above.

As expected, Silva was quite shocked when his manager Ed Soares delivered the heart wrenching news, much like his legion of fans around the world.

Silva has been sidelined ever since, and even though he wants to rematch Nick Diaz, he won't be getting back into the Octagon anytime soon, or at least until he resolves his issues with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
