Thiago Silva’s UFC 125 Drug Test ‘Inconsistent With Human Urine’

Thiago Silva’s UFC 125 drug test is finally back. Early rumors suggested one of his samples was dirty and had to be retested, but it turns out that wasn’t the case at all. Instead, the NSAC revealed today that Silva’s urine samples were “inconsistent with human urine.” MMA Junkie has the details:

Silva’s initial “A” test was flagged, and further testing on the “B” sample confirmed the original conclusion.

Urinalysis of Silva’s sample produced an “invalid result” that was “inconsistent with human urine,” according an NSAC complaint. The sample then was tested by the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory, which is accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency, and determined the same thing.

The report concludes that Silva “submitted an adulterated and/or substituted specimen for testing for the urinalysis.”

Well, the standard tainted supplement defense definitely isn’t going to work with this one, and it’s probably safe to assume that Silva isn’t some sort of alien life form (although that would be f-ing awesome in this blogger’s opinion). If you’re thinking it was some kind of masking agent, it’s not that either according Keith Kizer. He told ESPN’s Josh Gross that they believe it was a synthetic urine specimen, which has led many people to speculate that Silva may have used a Whizzinator (fake penis designed to defeat drug tests) to deliver the fake urine. At this point, no one but Silva knows for sure, but hopefully he’ll tell us on April 7 when he scheduled to appear before the commission to explain himself.

In the meantime, Thiago Silva is under official suspension and Kevin Randleman can breath a sigh of relief that he’s no longer the only fighter to get caught for allegedly trying to pass off fake urine as his own.

    Wow…i know Silva looked like a beast in his last fight, but I didn’t realize how beastly he was. He must have some ignorant people around him, or he was sold some questionable urine. Stories like this stain MMA. Good thing these stories don’t make it into mainstream news.

    I’m sure Dana is getting upset with the greater frequency of fighters getting caught. If the frequency picks up I wonder if he will make the penalty more severe, or continue to leave it up to the commissions.

    Silva always looked like a beast on his previous fights, Matt. In the end, he may no get caught.
    But the UFC should really start reviewing the politics of the event about that.
    It´s hard to see any fighter loosing for a roid-one.
