Bruno Silva has been handed a two-year suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), who does testing for the UFC. Per a statement from USADA, Silva’s suspension comes due to a test that found boldenone, a substance that is prohibited.
While the suspension was announced today, it started on June 14th, 2019, meaning less than a year is left on it.
The two parties conducted an arbitration process, but in the end it was concluded that Silva should serve the full two-year suspension issued.
Silva has fought twice in the UFC, both being losses. He made his promotion debut in October, getting caught in an arm triangle choke by Khalid Taha. His most recent fight came in March, losing to David Dvorak via decision.
