Anderson Silva has finally posted a statement, following the news that he’s been flagged for a potential doping violation, and will no longer fight at UFC Fight Night 122 as scheduled.

The former middleweight champ was booked to fight Kelvin Gastelum at the November 25th event, but now Michael Bisping has been signed for the headliner.

Silva was suspended in 2015 after testing positive for steroids, but the legendary fighter denied knowingly taking any type of banned substance.

The 42 year-old’s latest statement is below.
