Michael Bisping Agrees to Replace Anderson Silva at UFC China

It is still unknown at this point what Silva tested positive for, but no matter the scenario, this could forever tarnish the legend's career, and it's possible fans never see him in the octagon again if this ends poorly.

Silva was handed a one-year suspension for his first anti-doping violation.

He also appeared in numerous sitcoms, including The Betty White Show , Valerie's Family: The Hogans, and One Day at a Time . He got the Mel Brooks classic in 1974 and then a spot in Roman Polanski's noir classic Chinatown that same year.

With Silva out of the picture, the UFC scrambled to keep its main event intact for a UFC Fight Pass card that is focused heavily on regional Chinese talent.

"The UFC organization was notified on Friday that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has informed Anderson Silva of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on October 26, 2017", UFC said in a statement.

The agency has a decades-long history of approving similar deals, including the merger of Comcast and NBCUniversal in 2011. Those remarks put AT&T and DOJ on a collision course, policy analysts said, which may lead to DOJ suing to block the deal.

Although it's his first potential violation under the USADA program, "The Spider" is potentially a repeat offended after he failed a drug test around the time of his UFC 183 fight with Nick Diaz in January 2015.

While Silva is considered innocent pending the testing of his B sample, the UFC said the proximity of the show means he's been removed immediately and they will be seeking a replacement opponent for Gastelum. Bisping obviously had his title-winning five-fight winning streak snapped last week, but the former champion wants immediate redemption to get himself right back into the title picture. As a result, Silva has been provisionally suspended by USADA.
