Anderson Silva Insists He’s “Not a Cheater”, Tired of “False Accusations”

Anderson Silva

As Anderson Silva awaits to see what the Nevada State Athletic Commission elects to do, following his alleged, positive test for steroids earlier this year, the legendary fighter is repeating he’s innocent.

Silva is expected to appear in front of the NSAC in the coming weeks, as a result of allegedly testing positive for several banned substances, including anabolic steroids. Up until now, the former middleweight champ has insisted he never knowingly took PEDs.

Now, in a more recent Instagram post, Silva stated (translation via MMA Fighting.com):

“About my doping case, I’m waiting for the commission and my lawyers. I’m not a cheater and I never had a juiced body. Just watch my fights in Japan, when I fought at 176 pounds because there was no 185 pound division, and the guys I fought cut from 220 to 207. So for those ‘experts’, go search real facts.

“….I’m just tired of listening to lies and false accusations. I don’t live in a glass case, I’m not a saint and I never said I was the best. I always did what I love with truth, without overshadowing and lying to anyone. Unfortunately, I can’t please everybody because I’m not and I don’t wanna be unanimous.”

Silva returned to action in January and decisioned Nick Diaz at UFC 183. The fight marked the first time Silva had fought since December, 2013, when he broke his leg versus Chris Weidman.
