Anderson Silva Releases Statement, Says “Plans Are The Same, Nothing Has Changed”

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva released a statement via Twitter, his first public comments since being removed from a planned fight with Kelvin Gastelum later this month.

Silva was flagged by USADA for a potential anti-doping violation, which would be his second failed drug test of his career.

“The Spider” was replaced by Michael Bisping for the event, which takes place in Shanghai, China.
