Thaigo Silva pulled from his UFC 130 bout with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson due to steroids

By Michael Pepper

MMABay has been able to EXCLUSIVELY confirm that top rated light heavyweight, Thiago Silva will not be squaring off with former champion, Quinton “Rampage Jackson at UFC 130 on May 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the promotion officially informing the parties involved just yesterday.

A source close to the UFC confirmed the news to MMABay just minutes ago, adding the fighter has tested positive for steroids. There had been some confusion after the Nevada State Athletic Commission failed to name the fighter under investigation, as well as Silva claiming one of two tests had come back clean.

Silva is likely to suffer a fine and a hefty suspension if his legal beagles can’t come up with some evidence to prove his innocence when he goes in front of the commission later this year. Stay tuned to MMABay for more on this story as it breaks.
