“Fighting in the United Stares is great; my family likes it too. The American public likes my style of fighting; but I’m being judged and I’m going to fight this all the way. But I want to fight in Japan. Being in Japan was good.”
-Antonio Silva talks to Tatame about his upcoming fight with CSAC over fighting in Japan during the year long suspension handed down to him by the organization after he tested positive for a banned steroid.
Silva and his manager contend that Silva passed a subsequent test and that the fighter is innocent. A hearing is set for February to determine whether the EliteXC heavyweight champion will have his license to fight revoked completely.
