It’s been several days since the MMA world was hit with the news that Anderson Silva has been flagged again for a potential doping violation, and now the legendary fighter has finally commented on the situation.
Silva was supposed to fight Kelvin Gastelum next Saturday at UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai, but was removed from the card, after being notified of a USADA flag. Michael Bisping has agreed to step-up and fight Gastelum on November 25th.
More recently, the 42 year-old Silva tweeted out the statement below.
Thanks for all your support! A big kiss for everyone and see you soon. pic.twitter.com/nvoZTJkwct

Silva was suspended for a year in 2015, after it was announced he had tested positive for steroids, following his fight with Nick Diaz. The Brazilian star has repeatedly denied that he has ever knowingly taken banned substances.
