Anderson Silva has finally responded to the news that he tested positive for several performance-enhancing substances before and after his UFC 183 fight against Nick Diaz.
In an Instagram post today, the former middleweight champion continued to claim his innocence.
“I will not say anything about who I am or what I went through to get here. What matters to me now is the respect from those who have followed my career. I bled, struggled and fought because I love it and because I always wanted to honor the flag of the country I love so much.
“I don’t know what to apologize for, because I am still waiting for the results and analysis from the specialists that are working to reveal the truth,” Silva wrote. “Everything that I took since my injury are being analyzed. I look for the truth as much as all those who were surprised with the results. I always played clean, I was never a cheater.”
